Former New England Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi suffers stroke

Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi had another stroke on Thursday, according to a statement from his family. "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".

Players, coaches, fans and reporters are reacting to the news, and wishing Bruschi a speedy recovery.

This isn't the first time Bruschi endured a stroke, having survived one days after participating in the 2005 Pro Bowl.

Bruschi notably suffered a stroke back in 2005 while he was just 31 years old. He announced he would sit out the 2005 season, but returned in October of that season. "Tedy and his family thank you for your ongoing encouragement, and kindly ask for privacy at this time", the statement read.
