Patriots Wish Tedy Bruschi ‘Complete Recovery’ Following Second Stroke


Boston - New England Patriots legend and three-time Super Bowl champion Tedy Bruschi is recovering after suffering a stroke, CBS Boston reported.

The family didn't offer details about exactly where or when Bruschi suffered the episode, though it thanked the nurses, doctors and staff at Sturdy Memorial Hospital, which according to its website is in Attleboro, Massachusetts. "Tedy is recovering well", the statement read. "He recognized the warning signs immediately: arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties".

We wish Bruschi nothing but the best as he continues to recover in the hospital. "If you notice any of these signs call 9-1-1 immediately".

Bruschi, 46, suffered a mild stroke in February 2005, just weeks after he and the Patriots had defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX, but he recovered and played in nine games during the 2005 National Football League season.

Bruschi, 46, previously suffered a stroke in 2005 - three days after playing in New England's Super Bowl XXXIX win over the Philadelphia Eagles. He announced he would sit out the 2005 season, but returned in October of that season.

Following his first stroke, Bruschi and his family founded Tedy's Team - a non-profit organization for runners who raise awareness for stroke and heart disease, as well as raise funds to support the American Stroke Association.
