Former Patriots star doing 'much better' after 2nd stroke

Former New England Patriots linebacker and ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi says he's doing much better after suffering 2nd stroke

ATTLEBORO, Mass. -- Former New England Patriots linebacker and ESPN analyst Tedy Bruschi says he's doing "much better" after suffering a second stroke.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Bruschi says he knew what was happening immediately last Thursday when he lost use of his left arm, began slurring his speech and his wife noticed his face was drooping.

An ambulance took Bruschi to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, Massachusetts.

The Instagram post includes a list of the several warning signs of a stroke that should prompt an immediate call to 911.
