Tom Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, said in an interview on CBS This Morning that the New England Patriots quarterback suffered a concussion last season, and has suffered multiple concussions in his career.
“I just have to say, as a wife, I’m a little bit — as you know, it’s not the most, let’s say ‘unaggressive’ sport, right?” Bündchen said. “Football, like he had a concussion last year. I mean, he has concussions pretty much every year — we don’t talk about it, but he does have concussions.”
“I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through that kind of aggression all the time,” she added. “That cannot be healthy for you, right? I mean, I’m planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we’re like 100, I hope!”
That created a stir in NFL circles since the Patriots did not list Brady on the injury report this year, but Brady's agent told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Brady did not suffer a concussion in 2016.
Tom Brady's agent Don Yee said today his client was not diagnosed with a concussion last season.
"Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year," Yee said. "Many of the protocols and safeguards still are evolving, and it's obviously a good thing the organization and everyone close to him is vigilant and always looking out for his health."
Brady never reported concussion symptoms to the team's medical staff during the season, according to the NFL.
In 12 games in 2016, he passed for 3,554 yards with 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions while leading the Patriots to their fifth Super Bowl title.Back to the New England Patriots Newsfeed
