Drew Brees Says He Probably Wouldn’t Worry Her Wife If He Got a Concussion

(Before It's News)

Drew Brees took a pass when asked for his thoughts on Gisele Bundchen’s recent comments that her husband, Tom Brady, had a concussion last year that wasn’t reported, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback, however, did admit that he probably wouldn’t even tell his own wife, Brittany, if he was dinged or got his bell rung after a game.

“I wouldn’t want her to worry,” Brees told The Dan Patrick Show.

Brees agreed that the idea of self-reporting concussions is a “gray area,” because players don’t always know when they suffered a concussion and because they might be too competitive to take themselves out of a game.

Brees shared a story he has often told in the past about how he didn’t take himself out of a game after suffering the only documented concussion of his career while with the San Diego Chargers in 2004.

“I knew that something was not right. I knew that I was concussed,” Brees said. “But I didn’t take myself out of the game. I mean, I stayed in the game and played as long as I could until finally a coach pulled me aside and was like, ‘I’m looking out for you here, and you’re not gonna play anymore.’ …

“And that’s why it’s hard to change that mentality for guys. When you’re in the heat of the moment, heat of the battle and it’s competitive, you do not want to pull yourself out. That’s why the concussion protocols are in place where you’ve got the independent neurological consultants and the trainers and the referees. Everybody’s supposed to be looking.”
