Tedy Bruschi is recovering Friday after suffering a second stroke on Thursday, and the New England Patriots were quick to send their regards.
Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft released a statement on behalf of the team Friday afternoon, wishing the former Patriots linebacker well in his recovery.
“While shocked to hear of his recent stroke … we are relieved to learn that he recognized the early symptoms and immediately sought and received treatment,” the statement says. “On behalf of the entire Patriots organization, we extend our love, thoughts and prays to Tedy and the Bruschi family while we wish him godspeed in a complete recovery.”
Bruschi suffered his first stroke just three days after participating in the 2005 Pro Bowl. Since then, he’s been a fierce advocate for early detection of strokes and has shared his story with thousands of people.
