According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, former Packers offensive tackle and coach and NFL hall of famer Forrest Gregg has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.

Gregg played for the Packers from 1956-1971 and coached them from 1984-1987. He also coached the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals, taking the Bengals to a Super Bowl which they lost to the San Francisco 49ers.

Gregg earned the nickname "Iron Man" for playing in 188 consecutive games with the Packers. He beat Melanoma in 1976 and colon cancer in 2001.
