Gisele Bundchen: Tom Brady had a concussion last year

  Gisele Bundchen: Tom Brady had a concussion last year Tom Brady played through a concussion last year on his way to a fifth Super Bowl title, according to his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen. The injury, which was not reported by the team, left her worried about how long he should continue to play football. Asked if she wanted the New England Patriots quarterback to retire, Bundchen expressed concern "as a wife" in an interview on "CBS This Morning" that aired Wednesday."He had a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much every ..." she said, before cutting herself off. "I mean, we don't talk about it. But he does have concussions.

"Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year," Brady ' s agent , Don Yee said , according to the ESPN report. Is QB competition good for Chiefs? 1:26. Saturday places onus on Brady to report concussions .

Tom Brady was not diagnosed with concussion last year, agent says . Tom Brady ' s wife, Gisele Bundchen, said Wednesday that the QB has a history of concussions , but the Patriots have never reported one.

Tom Brady may have experienced concussion-like symptoms at some point during the 2016 NFL season, but the agent for the New England Patriots star says the quarterback was not diagnosed with a concussion.

Brady’s agent, Don Yee, delivered a statement to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Friday.

“Tom was not diagnosed with a concussion last year,” Yee said. “Many of the protocols and safeguards still are evolving, and it’s obviously a good thing the organization and everyone close to him is vigilant and always looking out for his health.”

Brady has never been listed on the injury report with a concussion. Despite that, his wife Gisele created some drama earlier this week when she said Brady suffered a concussion last season and has sustained more than one during his career.

One possible explanation could be that Brady hid his symptoms from the team and not his wife. Either way, the Patriots are unlikely to face any type of disciplinary action from the NFL. The Seattle Seahawks only received a warning earlier this offseason when it was revealed that they failed to disclose a knee injury Richard Sherman was playing through.

It wouldn't make much sense for Gisele to fabricate a story like that, so there is probably some truth behind it. The doctor who discovered CTE praised Gisele for being a hero after she spoke out.

Study: Female athletes more likely than males to report concussion symptoms .
With new knowledge about the impact and cause of concussions being shared with young athletes themselves, one point of emphasis in youth sports is the self-reporting of possible concussion symptoms. In this respect, according to a recent study, young men and women differ greatly. According to a piece published in the latest issue of the Journal of Athletic Training, young female athletes are far more likely than their male counterparts to report concussive symptoms.
