Default NFL Investigating Another *Patriots Scandal

The NFL has begun a review of Tom Brady's medical records to determine if he ever suffered a concussion or had concussion symptoms. The inquiry was launched after Brady's wife, Gisele BŁndchen, said Wednesday on "CBS This Morning" the New England Patriots quarterback had a concussion last year. It was apparently never reported.

During his celebrated 17-year career, Brady has never been officially sidelined by a concussion. But BŁndchen said he's still been hurt by all those hits. "He had a concussion last year. I mean, he has concussions pretty much every -- I mean, we don't talk about, but he does have concussions," BŁndchen said Wednesday on "CBS This Morning."

The NFL is taking a closer look at the Patriots' injury reports and all reports about Brady filed by the brain injury specialists and spotters who worked at Patriots games last season.

"Football players playing through concussions is sort of the dirty little secret," said Chris Nowinski, CEO of the Concussion Legacy Foundation. "In many situations, the player may not know they have a concussion. They may not recognize they have a concussion for another day or two."Last July, the NFL announced new protocols to evaluate and remove players with concussion symptoms. Teams that don't comply can be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars and lose draft picks.

Brady said last May that football players should seek help for head injuries right away. "You'd hate to stop doing something you love to do because of an injury. I've been very fortunate over the course of my career," Brady said on ABC News in May 2016.

According to Stats LLC, since he took over the starting quarterback job in 2001, Brady has missed just 19 games, 15 of them in one season when he injured his knee and four due to his Deflategate suspension. He has injured his arms, legs and shoulder, but not his head.

"I don't really think it's a healthy thing for your body to go through, like, you know, through that kind of aggression, like, all the time, that could not be healthy for you, right?" BŁndchen said.

The NFL told us health and safety is its foremost priority, a sentiment repeated by the players' union. CBS News also reached out to the New England Patriots and Tom Brady's agent. They told us they had no comment.

Let him not report them who cares... He is only hurting himself. If you don't report it or follow the rules then the NFL should not worry about liability or future litigations/complaints.

This. It's all on Brady. If he doesn't want to talk about it, he shouldn't have to. He can't be suing later, but this is really a non-issue.

There has to be some concern tho, at the *Patriots possibly sidestepping the injury report.

The NFL has been quick to try and put a lid on this, saying that "to their knowledge" Brady hasn't had a concussion.

But Giselle's comments are being investigated, and she said that's why she wants Brady to retire now. Because of the amount and frequency of head injuries he's had.

Someone, somewhere is lying.

Players hide injuries pretty regularly, with Brady's ascension to starter being the classic reason why. Trying to stop it is like herding clouds, expect moderate success at best.

Tom's such a fiery fiery competitor. Brady knows the costs that can come with having multiple concussions. Or does he? I'd hope he retire yesterday if he had the slightest medical concerns. He's got a loving family to spend quality time with once he let's go. The truth will come out at some point.

Don't be surprised to see *Brady take a few helmet to helmet hits this year.

I agree if by "loving family" you mean "a cold alpha female to report to"
To each their own!
