Former Patriots star doing ‘much better’ after 2nd stroke

Patriots legend Tedy Bruschi feeling 'much better' after July 4 stroke

Days after suffering a stroke, ESPN NFL analyst and former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi posted a message to Instagram saying "I'm doing much better". He claims that he noticed first the loss of use in his left arm, then realized he was slurring his speech and one part of his face was drooping. While shocked to hear of his recent stroke, known as TIA, we are relieved to learn that he recognized the early symptoms and immediately sought and received treatment.

The longtime Patriots star was initially taken to the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Mass., before being released from the facility. "These are stroke warning signs", he said. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital.

"Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers", Bruschi wrote.

Bruschi, now 46, previously suffered a stroke in 2005 while he was still a member of the Patriots, forcing him to miss the first six weeks of the season.


Bruschi included a photo with the post, which explained the warning signs for a stroke. Bruschi has run the Boston Marathon three times, including this past April.

Bruschi has since become a stroke awareness advocate and started Tedy's Team, a foundation raising awareness and supporting stroke survivors.

In his book, Bruschi says he briefly considered retiring from football and sat out the 2005 season, but he later announced that he would return and played in several regular season games that season.
