On CBS This Morning, Gisele Bundchen may have revealed something about Tom Brady that no one has ever known before — he’s had concussions, including one last year.

It came up when the host, Charlie Rose, asked Bundchen about Brady saying he wants to play until his mid 40s, and if she is on board.

Bundchen immediately brought up concussions.

“You know, as a wife, I am a little bit — as you know it’s an aggressive sport,” she said. “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. I don’t really think it is a healthy thing for your body to go through, through that kind of aggression all the time. That can’t be healthy. I am planning on him be healthy and do lots of things when we’re 100 I hope.”

Brady missed only two games last year besides his four-game suspension. Those games were in the preseason and one was said to be due to a family matter, and the other was because he reportedly suffered a cut on his finger before the game.

He was also never listed on the injury report with any kind of head or neck injury.

Bundchen also noted how much Brady’s plant-based diet has been working, and she is the one who got Brady on the kick.

“He said he’s been feeling so much better,” she said. “I have to say it is amazing the way he feels. He doesn’t feel achy. He feels so much more energy. … He loves it and wouldn’t want to feel any other way.”
