Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi had another stroke on Thursday, according to a statement from his family.
Bruschi is "recovering well," according to the statement tweeted by Bruschi's foundation.
Bruschi immediately recognized the warning signs of arm weakness, face drooping and speech difficulty, the statement said.
The statement thanked doctors, nurses and staff at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Mass., for "all they have done."
After suffering a stroke in February, 2005, just days after the Super Bowl, Bruschi established "Tedy's Team," which raises money for stroke research.
Bruschi retired in 2009 after 13 years with the Patriots and winning three Super Bowls.
