Gisele Bundchen's remarks on "CBS This Morning" that her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, had a concussion in 2016 and has had others have sparked a conversation on a hot-button topic that has multiple layers.

Gisele Bundchen said Wednesday her husband, National Football League star Tom Brady, had suffered multiple concussions in his career, despite never having been officially listed with a head injury. The NFL Players Association will be looking into Bundchen's claims. Bundchen, 36, also appeared to suggest Brady had been concussed on previous occasions.

"Football, like, he had a concussion a year ago". He has concussions pretty much every [year].

"There are no records that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion, or exhibited or complained of concussion symptoms", the statement added. "We don't talk about it, but he does have concussions".

The NFL said Thursday that it had reviewed injury reports from the Patriots' games and could find no evidence of reported head trauma. Today we have been in contact with the NFLPA and will work together to gather more information from the club's medical staff and Mr. Brady. It wouldn't come as a shock if Brady's camp and the Patriots backtrack from Gisele's comments and say something along the lines of her meaning he had a simple headache or something like that.

The Sun reports that rail ticketing, landlord agreements and mobile phone deals will all be simplified to help consumers. According to The Times , that move would save approximately £1.3bn.

The league is especially — though belatedly — sensitive to concussions, which have been linked to a brain disease that leaves former players forgetful, violent or suicidal.

Brady played in 12 regular-season games and three postseason games last season, winning Super Bowl LI against the Atlanta Falcons with the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. "And I want him to be happy".

But Bundchen balked at those plans when asked by CBS host Charlie Rose about her husband's plans.

"There is a period of time after the initial concussion where you are really at risk for getting another one, and that second one might be more significant or even catastrophic", Shessler said. "I'm planning on him being healthy and do a lot of fun things when we're like 100, I hope".
