New England Patriots fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Retired linebacker and former Patriots great Tedy Bruschi updated fans about his status after suffering a stroke on July 4, and it appears his health is heading in the right direction.

“Around 10:30 a.m. on July 4th I lost use of my left arm. I then tried to speak and realized I was slurring my speech. As I turned to my wife she noticed the left side of my face was drooping.” wrote Bruschi on his latest Instagram post.

“We immediately knew what was happening. These are stroke warning signs. We called 911 and an ambulance got me to the hospital. Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. I’m doing much better.”

The 46-year old, who is currently an ESPN analyst, had previously suffered a stroke in 2005 shortly after the completion of his ninth NFL season. He made a full recovery and managed to play for another four seasons before officially retiring after the 2008 season.

The legendary linebacker was a three-time Super Bowl champion, two-time Second team All Pro, and made a Pro Bowl appearance throughout his NFL career.

Jaguars star Jalen Ramsey on reason behind trade request: ‘All I care about is winning’

Just days after Jalen Ramsey asked to be traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars, there have been no shortage of suitors for his services.

While fans are digging deep into all the rumours and potential destinations for the All-Pro cornerback, many have been left wondering why exactly he asked to be dealt in the first place. The answer is simple.

“All I care about is winning, man. Shit,” said Ramsey.

“Everybody know that. I wanna fucking win, straight up. Excuse my language. That passion, that fire, that heart … I’mma continue giving that as long as I’m here.”

The 24-year old still intends to respect the organization, and says he will suit up for Thursday night’s game against the Tennessee Titans if he isn’t traded beforehand.

Ramsey, who was selected fifth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, has compiled 202 combined tackles, 45 passes defended, nine interceptions and one touchdown over a span of 50 games and three-plus seasons with the franchise.

He is also a two-time Pro Bowler, and was selected to the first All-Pro Team in 2017.

Cardinals’ rookie QB Kyler Murray has aspirations to be the ‘best to ever play the game’

As if being the first overall pick doesn’t add enough pressure already.

Rookie quarterback Kyler Murray, who was selected first overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2019 NFL Draft, isn’t phased by the expectations placed on him because he is planning to exceed that by a million.

Not only does he want to prove his doubters wrong, but he wants to be among the all-time greats by the time his NFL career comes to an end.

“When I left Texas A&M…nobody thought I could throw…I’m short and I can’t throw. It’s a bad combination.” said Murray.

“What fuels me?…I would like to be the best to ever play the game.”

The 22-year old, who is listed as 5-foot-10, completed 29 of 54 pass attempts for 308 yards, and threw for two touchdowns and one interception in the Cardinals’ 27-27 tie vs the Detroit Lions in their season opener on Sunday.

It was a solid performance, but it’s only one game. He’s certainly got a long way to go before being even near the conversation of the all-time greats.
