Former New England Patriots star Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke on the Fourth of July. "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".

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

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.

Rich Ohrnberger, a former teammate and Patriots offensive guard, also sent well wishes to Bruschi on Twitter, including a list of warning signs for his followers to look out for in the event they suffer a stroke. Incredibly, Bruschi returned to the field the following October, earning the NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

Linebacker Tedy Bruschi #54 of the New England Patriots watches play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium on August 17, 2008 in Tampa, Florida. "So he doesn't have any speech difficulties, arm weakness or facial dropping any more so really now it's resting", said Elizabeth Tirrell, executive director of Tedy's Team. He's "recovering well" at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in MA, according to the statement.

In a statement, the Bruschi family said he was recovering well. The family asked for privacy at this time.

He later worked for ESPN as an National Football League analyst. 'And I'm very proud of that'. He played four seasons after having a stroke the week after the 2005 Super Bowl, and has worked as an ESPN analyst since retiring. Boston is fantastic with this race, and my team inspired me to run again.
