Appearing on CBS This Morning earlier this week, Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen said her husband has sustained multiple concussions over the course of his career, including one last year.

“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.”

Later that day, the NFL released a statement saying it has no record of Brady sustaining a concussion last season. And now Friday, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Brady’s agent Don Yee also said his client was not diagnosed with a concussion last season.

“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.”

In Brady’s 17 years in the league, he’s never been listed on an injury report with a concussion.
