"I mean, we don't talk about it. but he does have concussions", Bundchen said.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady "had a concussion a year ago", his wife, former supermodel Gisele Bundchen, said while alluding to the fact that he may have suffered others. While it won't clear up whether or not Brady had a concussion, it is worth noting that there is no evidence that the Patriots hide concussions or hide them more than the average National Football League team.
But Bundchen balked at those plans when asked by CBS host Charlie Rose about her husband's plans. He will turn 40-years-old before this next regular season, and he must face internal questions of how much more he really wants to put his body through, especially if there are unannounced head traumas like the one his wife disclosed.
"There are no records that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion, or exhibited or complained of concussion symptoms", the statement added.
Bundchen said in an interview on "CBS This Morning" with Charlie Rose that the New England Patriots quarterback was concussed past year and had suffered other head traumas but did not elaborate on when they occurred.
"I'm most surprised that people think it's really news that an National Football League player had a concussion but it wasn't diagnosed and it wasn't reported", he said Wednesday from the VA-sponsored Brain Trust conference at Harvard Medical School. "I knew that I was concussed", Brees said.
Officer Found Not Guilty in Fatal Shooting
Shelby maintained Crutcher did not listen to her commands to get on his knees; she said she shot him out of fear for her safety. A Tulsa jury convicted the then-74-year-old Bates of second-degree manslaughter and he was sentenced to four years in prison.
"I knew that something was not right". He has long said he wanted to keep playing until his mid-40s, but he told ESPN in an interview published this week that he would continue beyond that if he was able to stay healthy and productive.
When asked what one thing he would change in the NFL, Brees went back to the issue of commissioner discipline, which has been a popular topic for him since his days as a NFL Players Association leader and his strong belief that the Saints and Sean Payton were wronged in the league's Bountygate investigation.
The Patriots and Brady's agent declined to respond to Bundchen's comments on Wednesday.
"Gisele rushing the QB more unsafe than any defense", reads the headline of Thursday Boston Herald column. "Gisele could take down an empire".
Here's the thing, though. If Tom Brady is human, there's reason for hope.
Brees shared a story he has often told in the past about how he didn't take himself out of a game after suffering the only documented concussion of his career while with the San Diego Chargers in 2004. He and Gisele, his supermodel wife, have two young children together.
