Former New England Patriot linebacker Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke Thursday, according to an announcement by his foundation, Tedy's Team.

Now, Tedy's Team will support Bruschi on his road to recovery.

Bruschi's charity, Tedy's Team, said he suffered a TIA - or a minor stroke - on the Fourth of July.

Bruschi is recovering well at Sturdy Memorial Hospital.

The former linebacker spent his entire National Football League career with the Patriots, and also made both the 2003 and 2004 AFC-NFC Pro Bowl, an All-Star game of the NFL.

The 46-year-old is "recovering well" at a MA hospital.

The former New England Patriots linebacker was able to recognize the warning signs immediately and get medical attention. 'And I'm very proud of that'.

"Usually with mini-strokes like TIA, you have a full recovery, but usually we have to do a full workup about the cause of the stroke to make sure that doesn't happen again". He has twice run in the Boston Marathon since leaving the NFL.

After retiring from the NFL, Bruschi became an ESPN analyst.

The Patriots selected Bruschi in the third round (No. 86 overall) in the 1996 NFL Draft out of Arizona. In most cases, the first three are the most obvious signs and part of four-letter acronym F.A.S.T., warning signs recommended by the American Stroke Association to spot and know when to call 911.

In 2005, Bruschi suffered a stroke just 3 days after the Super Bowl after suffering numbness and blurred vision and was diagnosed with a mild stroke.
