Our thoughts go out to the Stabler family and the Alabama community.

Earlier: This afternoon, published a report that legendary Alabama quarterback Ken Stabler, who played for Paul "Bear" Bryant from 1964-1967, had died. After the story was picked up and shared by numerous other outlets, Tuscaloosa News has retracted the report, saying that it was "inadvertently" posted while the staff worked to confirm the report.
