The 66-year-old revealed his ALS diagnosis in 2021, which made his recent health battle more difficult. He was admitted into the ICU on Feb. 13, and his family announced two days later he was diagnosed with MRSA and was undergoing a blood transfusion. The family initially thought he was battling pneumonia.

McMichael, lovingly known as "Mongo," was named to the Hall of Fame Class of 2024 along with Dwight Freeney, Devin Hester, Julius Peppers, Andre Johnson, Patrick Willis and Randy Gradishar. 

He is scheduled to be inducted in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 3.
