Gisele Bundchen may have revealed an injury reporting infraction by the New England Patriots last season.
Last season, Tom Brady missed the first four games of the season due to the Deflategate suspension. Brady did not miss any games due to head trauma and was not listed on the injury report with a head injury.
However, his wife went on CBS This Morning and was asked if she wanted Brady to retire. In her answer, she revealed that Brady suffered a concussion last year that was not reported by the Patriots.
Here’s Gisele’s full answer:
“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.”
Here is the interview with CBS:
