    According to television reports Thursday, Bruschi, who played in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii at the weekend, was diagnosed with a mild stroke but was in good spirits.

    "After suffering from headaches earlier today, Tedy Bruschi was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston," the team's official Web Site said.

    "The Bruschi family appreciates everyone's concern, but requests that you respect their privacy at this time."

    Reports so far is he is doing well and doesn't appear so far to have any lingering effects. So far it doesn't appear that his carreer is over.
