Drew Brees admits he wouldn't tell wife about concussion

Drew Brees admits he wouldn't tell wife about concussion

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.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback, however, did say that he probably wouldn't even tell his own wife, Brittany, if he was dinged or got his bell rung in 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.
