Albert Haynesworth: Former NFL DT says he urgently needs a kidney


"I urgently need a kidney," the former NFL All-Pro said Wednesday in an Instagram message showing him in a hospital bed.

Haynesworth, 38, said he has been suffering from kidney disease for a few years. His kidneys failed on Sunday, Haynesworth said in the social media post.

"It is hard to believe that I am a professional athlete until only 8 season (s) retired, that my body has received a new blow. First with brain aneurism 3 seasons from the NFL until now my kidneys fall short on me," he wrote.

Haynesworth played 10 seasons in the NFL, with Tennessee, Washington, New England and Tampa Bay retiring after the 2011 season. He reached the Pro Bowl when he was with the Titans in 2007 and 2008. He also became in 2007 and 2008 an All-Pro from the first team. He played at the University of Tennessee and was a first-round pick (15th overall) of the Titans in the 2002 NFL draw.

"If you are interested in giving this precious gift, call Vanderbilt on 615-936-0695 and press option 2," wrote Haynesworth. "GOD BLESS thank you for your prayers and thank you for sharing this message."
