ESPN said Friday that former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, the three-time Super Bowl champion and now an ESPN analyst, suffered a stroke Thursday. He played 13 years for the Patriots, making one Pro Bowl and winning three Super Bowls. He recognized his warnings immediately: arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulties. The family asked for privacy at this time. Unfortunately, Bruschi had another stroke just yesterday and according to his family, he is recovering at the Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Massachusettes. His family said in a statement that he is recovering.
The 46-year-old suffered a stroke in 2005 during his National Football League career and has been an advocate for stroke awareness with his charity, "Tedy's Team" since.

"Since his full recovery from a stroke in 2005, Tedy Bruschi has provided inspiration to so many and positively impacted the lives of others by sharing his story and advocating for early detection of stroke symptoms".
The Tedy's Team Instagram account posted the statement, saying Bruschi suffered a stroke known as a transient ischemic attack. "Wishing you a speedy recovery".
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.
