Video: Tom Brady In Trouble After Gisele Bundchen Lets Concussion Injury Slip During Interview

New England Patriot’s quarterback Tom Brady is involved in another scandal. During an interview with ABC, his wife revealed he suffered a concussion during the 2016-2017 season. Since this concussion was not disclosed to the NFL, it would be a major violation of policy if it turns out to be true.

“I just have to say, as a wife, I’m a little bit — as you know, it’s not the most, like — let’s say, [it’s] an aggressive sport. Right? Football, like, he had a concussion last year. He has concussions, pretty much. I mean, we don’t talk about it. But he does have concussions. And I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through that kind of aggression, like, all the time. That cannot be healthy for you, right? And I’m planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things we when are like 100 [years old], I hope.” – Gisele Bundchen

If Brady had a concussion, the Patriots didn’t report it. Failure to properly disclose an injury has in the past occasionally resulted in the loss of a draft pick, though the Seahawks did not lose a pick for their failure to disclose Richard Sherman’s MCL injury last season. It is also possible that Brady concealed the injury from the team, rather than the team concealing it from the league, which would probably insulate the Patriots from any punishment.

The NFL has said they are now investigating the possibility of an undisclosed injury:

“There are no records that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion, or exhibited or complained of concussion symptoms. Today we have been in contact with the NFLPA and will work together to gather more information from the club’s medical staff and Mr. Brady.” – NFL

It will be interesting to see how this one turns out.
