DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Lions legend Lem Barney is backtracking from comments he made last week in which he called football "deadly" and predicted within 20 years the game would not be played.  The Pro Football Hall of Famer issued an apology over the weekend, saying while he holds his belief that the game has become too dangerous, the Sound Mind and Body Camp was "not the forum for those comments."

Barney said he has said under oath before Congress and at other events that the game needs reforms.  He added on Friday at the camp that he has urged his grandson not to play football.
