“He had a concussion last year. He has concussions, pretty much. I mean, we don’t talk about it. But he does have concussions,” she said. “And I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through that kind of aggression, like, all the time. That cannot be healthy for you, right? And I’m planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things we when are like 100 [years old], I hope.”
Obviously it’s unclear who “we” is referring to in this case, whether it means Brady not talking about it to anyone, the Patriots not wanting to talk about it, etc. It’s also worth noting that she’s not a doctor, and could just be referring to something he had in a general term. However, it’s quite the accidental slip for someone simply participating in one of those morning show, softball interviews that so frequently make you fall back asleep.
Last season, Brady was 11-1 as a starter, and threw for 28 touchdowns to just two interceptions, which is a ratio made even more absurd by the fact that he was freaking 39. He missed the first four games not due to injury, but instead due to a suspension for DeflateGate. (Maybe you heard about it.) This, of course, is to say nothing about winning the damn Super Bowl for the fifth time.
As for the Patriots, they had no immediate comment, probably because they didn’t see this one coming.
Patriots have no immediate comment on Gisele Bundchen’s concussion-related comments on CBS about her husband Tom Brady.

Guess it’s time to pull the lead PR guy off the golf course.
Previous non-disclosures of injuries have resulted in a punishment via the loss of a draft pick. Also, it wouldn’t be too shocking to see the Internet really take off with this controversy. Stay tuned.
