Tom Brady didn’t deny that he suffered a concussion last season, Stephen Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.
Talking to the media for the first time since the day after the Super Bowl, the Patriots quarterback was asked Friday about what his wife, Gisele, said in a TV interview back in May that Brady had suffered a concussion. He was asked point blank if that was accurate.
“You know, I don’t … I don’t want to get into things that happened in my past,” Brady said. “Certainly, medical history and so forth. I really don’t think that’s anybody’s business. What happened last year, I’m focused on this year and improving and working on things I need to get better at. That’s how I approach everything. I’m not sitting there worrying about last year or five years ago. There’s other people who do worry about that, my wife or my parents, my sister, people that love me and care about me, but I do the best that I can do to come out and be prepared to play mentally and physically and I give the game everything I can.”
Brady was never listed on the injury report for a concussion or any head injury last season, which is a contrast to what his wife said in that interview.
“As a wife, I’m a little bit — it’s not the most, let’s say, unaggressive sport,” Gisele said on CBS. “Football — he had a concussion last year. I mean, he has concussions pretty much every — I mean, we don’t talk about them. But he has concussions.”
