Gisele Bündchen has told an interviewer that her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, "does have concussions."
When asked on CBS "This Morning" if she's trying to get the 39-year-old QB to retire, Bündchen brought up concussions.
"I mean, he had a concussion last year," she said. "I mean, we don't talk about it, but he does have concussions. I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through."
She did not say whether last year's concussion was diagnosed.
Bündchen added: "I'm planning on having him be healthy and do a lot of fun things when we're, like, 100."
The Patriots did not list Brady as having a concussion at any point in the 2016 season, and no concussion or head injury is listed for Brady in his professional career, according to Stats Pass.
An NFL spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Patriots declined to respond to Bündchen's comments on Wednesday. Brady's agent did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Brady turns 40 in August, and has said he wants to play until his mid-40s.
