BREAKING: Former Lions WR Brett Perriman reportedly fighting for his life

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Brett Perriman collapsed and was taken to a Miami-area hospital Tuesday night, per multiple reports.

The website is reporting that Perriman, 50, is currently on life support.

Friend and former “2 Live Crew” member Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell tweeted Tuesday night that Perriman is “fighting for his life,” asking for prayers from followers.

Perriman’s son, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Breshad Perriman tweeted out his support as well.

I remember watching Morton, Perriman and Moore as a kid growing up – next to the magic of Barry Sanders, watching Perriman and Moore sprint down the field was a true joy. Very sad news to hear about this tonight.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Perriman family tonight.

Brett Perriman had a career-best 1,488 receiving yards in 1995 with the Lions. In that season, Perriman and Herman Moore became the first teammates in NFL history to each record more than 100 receptions and more than 1,400 receiving yards in the same season. He was drafted in the second round by the Saints in 1988.
