Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, said QB has had concussions in his career, including one last season
The wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he has sustained concussions during his career, including one last year.
Brady did not miss any games due to head trauma and was not listed on any injury report with that injury. He played in every Patriots game last season save for the first four games, which he missed due to his suspension stemming from Deflategate.
Brady's wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, spoke to "CBS This Morning" and was asked if she wanted Brady to retire.
Brady turns 40 in August and has said that he wants to play until his mid-40s.
"As you know, it's not the most, like-- let's say 'unaggressive' sport. Right? Football, like, he had a concussion last year. I mean, he has concussions pretty much every-- I mean, we don't talk about-- but he does have concussions," Bündchen said. "And he's-- I don't really think it's a healthy thing for your body to go through, like-- you know, through that kind of aggression, like, all the time, that could not be healthy for you, right? … And I'm planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we're, like, 100, I hope."
The NFL released a statement Wednesday saying that there were no records to indicate Brady had sustained serious head injury of a concussion or exhibited any symptoms, based on cunsultations with experts and concussion spotters.
Brady threw for 3,554 yards with 28 touchdowns and two interceptions last season, his 17th in the NFL.
He led the Patriots to a comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, earning the game's Most Valuable Player honors.
