Another famous Chicago athlete was victimized early Monday morning.
The former Illinois running back was with another companion along the South Side walkway when he was robbed of his wallet, phone and cash, sources familiar with the investigation told the Chicago Sun-Times.
"It was obviously a scary moment," his agent Mike McCartney said, according to the Sun-Times. "But he is fine. He is doing great. He said he doesn't have anything that is worth his life."
Reports said the two alleged perpetrators wore black hoodies and ski masks.
