Three-Time Super Bowl Champion Tedy Bruschi Recovering After Second Stroke

ESPN NFL analyst and former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke on Thursday

Unfortunately, Bruschi had another stroke just yesterday and according to his family, he is recovering at the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Massachusettes. He recognized his warnings immediately: arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties. "Tedy and his family thank you for ongoing encouragement, and kindly ask for privacy at this time".

In a statement to ESPN, his family confirmed on Friday that the three-time Super Bowl champion, 46, was recovering well following his stroke.

Bruschi was found to have a heart defect that required him to undergo a surgical procedure to fix a hole, forcing him to sit out the start of the 2005 campaign.

In February 2005, only 10 days after playing in Super Bowl 34 with the Patriots, Bruschi, 31 at the time, experienced temporary numbness, blurred vision and headaches and was taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a mild stroke.

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.

Players, coaches, fans and reporters are reacting to the news, and wishing Bruschi a speedy recovery.

He even started a running club called Tedy's Team, which raises funds and awareness for the American Stroke Association.

Men's Health ran a feature on Bruschi and his recovery from the stroke in 2014.
