DETROIT -- Buffalo Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr. has been hospitalized and is listed in good condition, a team official acknowledged today.
WIlson, 93, was last seen at a public event earlier this month in ceremonies at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. He had not been planning to attend the Bills' exhibition game tonight at Detroit, near his suburban home of Grosse Point Shores, Mich. Wilson has been in regular contact with his top executives, as is his custom, this week. He generally speaks daily with General Manager Buddy Nix and Chief Executive Officer Russ Brandon.
Wilson was hospitalized in May 2011 after taking a fall in his home and breaking his hip. He has been bothered by balance issues the past several years. He recovered from that accident, but attended only one Bills game last season, an October home game against the New York Jets.
