National Football League says 'no records' show that Tom Brady had a concussion

While no concussions have ever popped up on any team-issued report during Brady's storied career, Bundchen says he's suffered several.

If that is true, the team could face discipline for not reporting the injury.

The 36-year-old then revealed her husband's history of concussions. "I mean, I'm planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we're like, 100", she told the interviewer. But he does have concussions.

"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. But he did miss practice late in the season with other ailments, including leg, thigh and ankle injuries.

That's an eye-opening statement considering Brady wasn't on the injury report with a concussion at all last season.

Naturally, the Internet had a blast making light of this development.

She shared: "As you know, it's not the most, like, let's say, un-aggressive sport, right?"

After serving a four-game suspension to start the 2016 season, Brady appeared in the Patriots' last 12 regular-season games and each of their three playoff games.

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. The NFL Players Association will be looking into Bundchen's claims.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said league officials reviewed all reports from independent neurotrauma consultants and athletic trainers who worked at Brady's games during the 2016 season. Brady also has not commented at this time.

In the ESPN interview, Brady acknowledged his wife would play a role in his decision to eventually retire.
