On CBS This Morning Wednesday, Gisele Bundchen, the wife of Tom Brady, revealed the quarterback has had concussions over the course of his career, including one last season.

The only issue with this is Brady has never been listed on any injury report with a concussion in his 17-year career.

The NFL responded to Bundchen’s comments with a statement. It said the NFL has no record of Brady having any sort of concussion, but will continue to gather more information from the team and Brady.

The statement reads: 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 games as well as club injury reports that were sent to the league office.

There are no records that indicate 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 of our players have and continue to receive the best care possible.
