“I just have to say as a wife … football is not the most unaggressive sport,” Bundchen said in the interview, which aired Wednesday morning. “Football, he had, like, a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much — we don’t talk about. But he does have concussions. I don’t think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through that aggression all the time. That can’t be healthy for you, right?”

Brady wouldn’t be the first player to hide a concussion, but it’s particularly notable given his stature in the sport. As the NFL has tried to change its protocol over the years, this is the latest sign teams and players aren’t doing enough to reveal them.
It’s possible Brady hid his concussion from even the Patriots, but that’s not known at this time. The Seattle Seahawks found themselves in hot water in January when they revealed cornerback Richard Sherman played through a knee injury, but wasn’t listed on the injury report for it.
Teams are supposed to list every injury and update their status throughout the week. Failure to do so could result in fines and loss of draft picks.
