Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, appeared on Wednesday’s episode of “CBS This Morning,” and her comments on the show prompted an NFL investigation into the Patriots’ injury reports from last season.
She stated that Brady had a concussion last year. “He has concussions pretty much – I mean, we don’t talk about it. He does have concussions,” she continued.
These controversial statements caused the NFL to take a further look into the claim.
The league issued a statement later Wednesday afternoon that said, “We have reviewed all reports relating to Tom Brady from the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultants and certified athletic trainer spotters who worked at Patriots’ home and away 2016 season games as well as club injury reports that were sent to the league office.”
“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. The health and safety of our players is our foremost priority and we want to ensure that all our players have and continue to receive the best care possible.”
The Patriots, as well as Brady’s agent, had no comment on the claim. Last season, Brady was only listed with thigh, ankle and knee issues throughout the season.
