Patriots Pro Bowl linebacker Tedy Bruschi was hospitalized yesterday afternoon and kept overnight to determine the cause of headaches.
"After suffering from headaches earlier today, Tedy Bruschi was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston," the Patriots said in a statement. "He is in good condition and will be held for further evaluations. The Bruschi family appreciates everyone's concern, but requests that you respect their privacy at this time."
According to a team source, Bruschi was taken by ambulance from his North Attleborough home. Patriots spokesman Stacey James confirmed Bruschi, 31, will undergo further tests this morning.
Channel 4 reported late last night that Bruschi was suffering from "stroke-like symptoms" -- including partial paralysis and blurred vision.
Bruschi had returned home early this week from Hawaii, where he played for the AFC in its 38-27 victory over the NFC Sunday in the Pro Bowl. He showed no signs of being injured during the game.
