Longtime NFL defensive lineman Chris Baker revealed his life nearly ended earlier this week.
Baker, who played in the NFL from 2009-18, had a stroke. Thankfully, he survived.
"I can’t believe I had a stroke,” he said. “But God not done with me yet.”
TMZ Sports had more details:
Baker's mother says he suffered the "serious" stroke on Friday ... but doctors stated he is responding as if it were minor, and he is expected to make a full recovery -- calling it a "miracle."
She added Baker required emergency surgery following the stroke.
The NFL world is praying for the longtime defensive lineman.

"Damn. Get Better Swaggy!!!" one fan added.
"Prayers swaggy!" another fan wrote.
"Damn not Chris Baker that boy was fun to watch play always had a smile on his face stay blessed," one fan added.
