Former NFL QB Ryan Leaf is recovering in California after undergoing surgery to remove a benign tumor from his brain stem.

Leaf, 35, had been experienceing dizziness and blurred vision, according to The Associated Press. He had surgery a week later in Santa Monica, Calif. and was released Saturday.

"I am looking forward to resting a bit and being with my family. This was just another bridge for me to cross, and I will continue to live each day to the fullest and give back where I can!" Leaf said in a statement.

Leaf was the No. 2 pick of the 1998 NFL draft. He played for the Chargers from 1998-2000 and the Cowboys in 2001.
