    Report: Bruschi suffered stroke-like symptoms

    Report: Bruschi suffered stroke-like symptoms
    Wednesday, February 16, 2005 news services

    BOSTON -- New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Wednesday after complaining of headaches.

    WBZ-TV in Boston reported Wednesday that Bruschi had stroke-like symptoms, partial paralysis and blurred vision.

    Bruschi was to spend the night at the hospital and more tests were scheduled for Thursday morning, team spokesman Stacey James said.

    "He is in good condition and will be held for further evaluations," the team said in a statement. "The Bruschi family appreciates everyone's concern, but requests that you respect their privacy at this time."

    A spokeswoman for Massachusetts General Hospital would neither confirm nor deny Bruschi had been admitted and referred all questions to the Patriots.

    Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who was attending the men's college basketball game between Boston College and Rutgers on Wednesday night, declined comment.

    Bruschi, a 6-foot-1, 247-pound nine-year NFL veteran, is a key member of New England's defense that has helped the team win three of the past four Super Bowls, including a 24-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Feb. 6.

    Bruschi, selected in the third round of the 1996 draft out of Arizona, was second on the team in tackles during the regular season with 122, behind only safety Rodney Harrison with 138. He also had 3 sacks and three interceptions during the regular season.

    He had two fumble recoveries in the team's 20-3 divisional playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts, and an interception in the Super Bowl.

    He has 753 tackles, 25 sacks and 11 interceptions in his career.

    He also played in last weekend's Pro Bowl in Hawaii for the first time.
