After Gisele Bundchen made an appearance on national television suggesting that her husband had sustained a concussion last season, the NFL and NFLPA promised to look into it.
They did. They found nothing.
"The NFL and NFLPA have conducted comprehensive evaluations of Concussion Protocol as it applied to Tom Brady during the 2016-17 season," the league and the union announced in a statement. "This review included an examination of all game film from every Patriots' game last season, every report from the Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultants and Booth ATC Spotters assigned to those games and Mr. Brady's medical records, which were produced pursuant to a release signed by Mr. Brady.
"This review identified no evidence of any deviation from the Protocol by the Patriots' medical staff or the Unaffiliated Neurotrauma Consultants assigned to Patriots' games or any indication that Mr. Brady sustained a concussion or reported signs or symptoms consistent with having sustained a concussion.
"We appreciate the cooperation of the Patriots' medical staff in conducting this review."
Gisele appeared on CBS This Morning back in May and told Charlie Rose that, "He does have concussions. I mean he has concussions pretty much every -- you know, we don’t talk about it but he does have concussions."
Early in training camp, Brady was asked about his wife's comments.
"I don’t want to get into things that happened in my past, certainly medical history and so forth," Brady said. "I really don’t think that’s anyone’s business . . . I’m focused on this year and improving and working on things I need to get better at. That’s how I approach everything."
