Former U of A Wildcat Tedy Bruschi Returns To Hospital

By Scott Kilbury, KOLD News 13 Sports Director

New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi -- who once played for the University of Arizona -- is facing heart surgery, according to sources in Tucson and Boston.

The team isn't confirming this news yet, but KOLD News 13 has learned Bruschi went into a Boston hospital for tests.  He is scheduled to have surgery to repair a hole in his heart by the end of the week. That's what may have caused the mild stroke he suffered last month.

The 31-year-old Bruschi was rushed to the hospital complaining of partial paralysis just two weeks after winning his 3rd Super Bowl ring.

Bruschi played football at Arizona from 1992 to 1995.
