Former UA football player Tedy Bruschi suffers stroke

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

Former NFL linebacker and current ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi is "recovering well" after suffering a stroke Thursday, his family said in a statement released Friday by his foundation, Tedy's Team.

Bruschi, now an ESPN analyst, had a stroke in February 2005, just days after playing in Super Bowl XXXIX, won by the Patriots. Since then, he's been a fierce advocate for early detection of strokes and has shared his story with thousands of people.

Bruschi has dedicated much of his life to raising awareness about strokes since he suffered his in 2005.

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 former New England Patriots linebacker was able to recognize the warning signs immediately and get medical attention. He has run the Boston Marathon three times, including in 2019, to raise funds for American Stroke Association.

His family announced the news in a statement Friday noting that Bruschi recognized the warning signs and is "recovering well". "And I'm very proud of that".

Bruschi's family said he was taken to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Mass. He regularly appears on NFL Live, SportsCenter and ESPN Radio, and contributes to the network's Super Bowl and NFL Draft coverage.

"You know, you think about Tedy Bruschi as a guy who is in fantastic shape and you don't even really think about you know, insane stuff like that when you see somebody who just ran a marathon and having to deal with a second one", Former Patriots tight end Jermaine Wiggins said.
