When Gisele Bundchen said earlier this week that her husband, Tom Brady, suffered a concussion at some point last season, it was news to the sports world and set off the usual amounts of chatter both about Brady’s health and then how the NFL could investigate the Patriots for not disclosing the injury.
There’s just one thing: ESPN reported Friday that Brady’s agent said the quarterback never was diagnosed with a concussion last season.
Tom Brady’s agent Don Yee said today his client was not diagnosed with a concussion last season.”Tom was not diagnosed…
So who are we to believe? Obviously, this statement serves the Patriots’ best interests – the last thing they need is another league investigation for skirting the rules. But it’s also unlikely Brady’s wife wouldn’t know what his ailments were.
Of course, both points of view could be true. There have been plenty of cases of athletes keeping concussion symptoms from their teams so they can stay on the field. It would be hard for Brady to be diagnosed with a concussion if he never told the Patriots how he was feeling – even if he did tell his wife.
