Coach says linebacker recovering from stroke (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylc=X3oDMTBpZ2NvMjltBF9TAzk1ODYxMDU5BHNlYwN0 aA--?slug=ap-patriots-bruschi&prov=ap&type=lgns)

SMITHFIELD, R.I. (AP) -- Six weeks after a stroke, linebacker Tedy Bruschi visits the New England Patriots' headquarters daily, coach Bill Belichick told a group at Bryant College.

``He comes in regularly. He's there every day,'' Belichick said Wednesday night during a motivational speech to a crowd of 1,300.

``It was a serious situation, and he's getting better,'' said Belichick. ``Tedy is Tedy. He's an upbeat guy. He has a smile on his face like he always does.''

There has been little information released publicly about the 31-year-old's condition since he left Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Feb. 18.

His wife, Heidi, had called 911 two days earlier, saying her husband was experiencing ``blurred vision, numbness on the right side of his body.''

There has been no word from the team or the family on whether Bruschi will resume his football career.

A nine-year veteran, Bruschi has been a key member of the defense that helped New England win three of the last four Super Bowls. Bruschi played in his first Pro Bowl this year in Hawaii.

I'm not worried about his football days I just hope he is doing O.K. for himself and his family.
