bradyHey, so here’s something fun about the NFL and head trauma.

(There is nothing fun about the NFL and head trauma).

Gisele Bundchen, famous in her own right but also married to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, said on CBS This Morning that Brady had a concussion last year. And apparently it wasn’t his first one.

He had a concussion last year,” she sad on the program in response to a question about whether she wants her husband to retire. “I mean he has concussions pretty much every — I mean we don’t talk about — but he does have concussions.”

Yeah, about that. Either Bundchen is mistaken about what constitutes a concussion — which would be weird — or Brady has probably played with undisclosed concussions. Why do we know that?

Because thanks to David Woods of The Score, who went back and looked at four years of Patriots injury reports, we know Brady wasn’t listed with a concussion at any point from 2013-16.

The NFL has implemented and tweaked a concussion protocol in recent years as research has intensified the link between football and long-term brain problems, including CTE.

Again, there is nothing definitive from what Bundchen said. But it is interesting at least to think of the implications of what it appears she was saying.
