Brady’s agent says he wasn’t concussed…sort of

Gisele Bundchen created quite a stir this week with a television interview she did. The wife of Tom Brady said basically that he played through a concussion last year and that he gets them all the time.

This would be a major issue because Brady has never shown up on the injury report with a head injury. This could land the New England Patriots in major hot water with the NFL if it’s found out that they are messing with the injury report and allowing a player to play through a concussion.

Well, if Brady’s agent, Don Yee is to be believed, there is nothing to see here.

“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.”

He said he wasn’t diagnosed with a concussion. Didn’t say he didn’t have one. He said nobody diagnosed him with one. I’m inclined to be with Gisele on this one, and the Patriots could have a PR nightmare on their hands. But, they seem to all be friends with Donald Trump so they can just ask him for advice on how to handle these problems.
