Tom Brady suffered a concussion last season with the New England Patriots, the superstar quarterback’s wife said during an interview Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.”
In fact, Gisele Bundchen appeared to stop herself just short of revealing that her husband suffered head injuries “pretty much every” season.
“He had a concussion last year,” she said. “I mean he has concussions pretty much every — I mean we don’t talk about — but he does have concussions.”
NFL teams are required to disclose their players’ injuries on various injury reports. In addition, the league has a concussion protocol that outlines a specific five-step process that players who’ve been diagnosed with a concussion must complete before returning to action.
The Patriots have not reported Brady as having a concussion in at least four seasons.
It is unclear whether Bundchen meant she and Brady concealed concussions from the Patriots or that the team concealed them from the league.
Either way, though, it sounds like Brady might be playing though some pretty serious head injuries.
