Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr's son said his father's health is improving following two stokes and a mild heart attack.
Bart Starr Jr, said Saturday night that that his 81-year-old father had started "turning the corner in a significant way."
The younger Starr spoke during the induction ceremony for another former Green Bay quarterback, Brett Favre, into the franchise's Hall of Fame.
Starr's family said last month that he was participating in a clinical trial using stem cells as a possible treatment for strokes. Starr fell ill in September.
The younger Starr said his father hopes to return to Lambeau Field on Thanksgiving night, when Favre's No. 4 will go up on the stadium's interior facade, joining other retired numbers.
