Tom Brady Isn’t Worried About Concussions, Despite Giseles Worries

Tom Brady, the football player married to Gisele Bundchen is not worried about the risks connected to the sport he practices. According to him, a concussion is just a part of playing football, he said in an interview at CBS Sunday Morning. He explained: “I don’t worry about them, no, I mean, I’m not oblivious to them. I understand the risks that come with the physical nature of our game.”

While his wife, Gisele Bundchen, doesn’t really agree. She said: “He had a concussion last year. He has concussions pretty much every … I mean, we don’t talk about it. He does have concussions. I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for a body to go through that kind of aggression all the time. That could not be healthy for you.”

There are no evidence that Brady or the New England Patriots failed to follow the NFL’s concussion protocol. Brady said: “I’m going to do everything I can to take care of my body in advance of the, you know, of the hits that I’m going to take on Sunday.” Despite the dangers of his job, the 40-year-old player takes really good care of his body. He said he’s never tried coffee, has tried a “little bit” of salt, “on occasion” has some sugar, and “almost never” has dairy. From one extreme to the other.
