    We wondered about where Glazer was on Tuesday, and the answer was something we didn't expect at all - he's in the hospital battling double pneumonia after a back procedure went wrong. The details from TMZ are, well, horrifying.
    Glazer was having a back procedure to treat a broken disc Tuesday morning ... but shortly after doctors put him under he got sick and started choking on his own vomit -- the fluid ended up filling BOTH lungs.

    Glazer was rushed to an L.A. area hospital where his breathing was so shallow his blood oxygen level dropped into the 70s (90-100 is normal) -- which over any prolonged period can easily turn into a life or death situation.

    This is just depressing. Glazer is one of the best reporters out there, and it's truly a shame to see him in such dire straits because of what he thought was a minor procedure.

    Was actually hanging in his mothers home in VT this weekend. She didn't seem overly worried I think the article is over done

    Goes to show why there's no such thing as "minor" surgery.

    For those asking i had a minor back deal today that unfortunately took a pretty scary turn for the worse while under. Now been hospitalized
    Will be off the grid while I try to get better but I expect to crush this and be up and around hopefully this week
    Crazy morning, lungs aspirated during routine procedure, now in hospital w double pneumonia>>"@jasonrmcintyre: NFL Free Agency no fun for @JayGlazer: routine back procedure turned into a trip to the ER. Anesthesia led to vomiting, choking and pneumonia"

    I am incredibly humbled everyone by all your kind tweets, prayers and thoughts. Truly honored and can't thank you all enough. I feel blessed
    Didn't have the best night and AM, struggled breathing throughout evening. But my plan is to get out in time to do ufc for fox this weekend
