GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The family of one of the Green Bay Packers most beloved quarterbacks has issued an update on his condition.

Bart Starr suffered two strokes and a mild heart attack last September. The family said Wednesday in a statement released by the Packers that Starr is participating in a clinic trial using stem cells as a treatment for strokes. The 81-year-old Starr returned to his home in Alabama Friday after the first of two treatments.

The family members say they’ll share details of the clinical trial sometime in the future and that Starr is working toward one goal - a return to Green Bay for a Packers game.

Starr played for the Packers from 1956 to 1971, leading the team to five NFL championships as well as the first two Super Bowls.
