Steve Gleason's story of battling ALS is a known one these days for those who adore the New Orleans Saints.
Those who follow the NFL likely know Peter King's SI.com column 'Monday Morning QuarterBack.'
Today, the two joined forces. King, on vacation, tabbed Gleason to pen this week's column and the former Saints special teams standout used the opportunity to talk about his life and battle with the disease.
Gleason articulates how he communicates and what it's like being a father while dealing with the debilitating disease at the same time.
