Nearly two weeks ago, Tedy Bruschi suffered a stroke – his second stroke in the past 15 years. Bruschi, 46, suffered a stroke during his playing career, but fought back to play a few more seasons.
The first stroke occurred in February 2005, just days after leading the New England Patriots to their third Super Bowl title.
Bruschi announced he suffered from stroke related symptoms in the morning before going to the hospital. He has since returned home to continue his recovery process.
On Tuesday night, the former NFL star made his first public comments since suffering the stroke.
Bruschi took to Twitter with a message for his new NFL Countdown teammate Randy Moss.
“Excited to be working with this guy again on Sunday NFL Countdown. Let’s go Moss!” Bruschi said.

Earlier Tuesday morning, ESPN announced Bruschi as the newest member of the NFL Countdown crew.
“Veteran NFL analyst Tedy Bruschi, a three-time Super Bowl champion who joined ESPN in 2009, will join Sunday NFL Countdown in 2019. Third-year host Sam Ponder, analysts Matt Hasselbeck, Randy Moss – who just signed a multi-year contract extension, Rex Ryan and Louis Riddick, as well as insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter, all return for the three-hour weekly show (10 a.m. – 1 p.m. ET),” ESPN announced.
We’re glad to see Tedy is doing well.
