Bledsoe to leave hospital

September 26, 2001


— Drew Bledsoe escaped damage to his internal organs when he was knocked out of Sunday's game, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday.

Belichick added that Bledsoe could leave the hospital today and still is projected to miss at least the next two games.

"There's no damage that's been detected to any internal organ or ribs or anything like that, or lungs," Belichick said on a conference call. "The chest tube will probably be removed (Wednesday). Assuming that all continues to go well, my guess is that he'll be discharged in the next day or two."
