NFL says 'no records' show that Tom Brady had a concussion

No Comments

By David Rind

Maddie Meyer/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The National Football League responded on Wednesday to reports that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sustained a concussion last season, saying that there are “no records
that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion.”

“We have reviewed all reports relating to Tom Brady from the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultants and certified athletic trainer spotters who worked at Patriots’ home and away 2016 season games as
well as club injury reports that were sent to the league office,” an NFL spokesperson said in a statement.

“There are no records that indicate that Mr. Brady suffered a head injury or concussion, or exhibited or complained of concussion symptoms,” the statement added.

The NFL said they have been in contact with the NFL Player’s Association and they are working on gathering more information, adding that the “health and safety of our players is our foremost
priority.”

The NFL’s response comes after Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, expressed concern about her husband’s health in an interview with “CBS This Morning” that aired on Wednesday.

“He had a concussion last year. I mean he has concussions pretty much every … I mean, we don’t talk about it … but he does have concussions,” Bundchen said.

“I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through … that kind of aggression all the time. That could not be healthy for you,” Bundchen added.

Bundchen’s comments garnered a firestorm of reaction on Twitter, and come two days after Brady said in an interview with ESPN that he hopes to continue playing football into his “mid-40s.”

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LA Right now, priority #1 for Cam is working on the follow-up to her Untamed album, which brought us her breakthrough hit, “Burning House.” But she’s also taking a little time to decorate her new house.

You can check out the progress she’s made after partnering with Wayfair, in a new spread on the popular home website. The artist who’s become known for her fondness for yellow admits it’s definitely part of her decorating equation.

“Yellow is just a positive, friendly color,” Cam says. “I find that I feel happier and am in a better mood when I’m wearing yellow, but also that people are nicer to me when I’m wearing yellow. So I’m just drawn to it.”

“Also, I’m from California,” she adds, “so yellow for me is like me getting to have a little bit of California sunshine wherever I am.”

If you dig Cam’s choices, you can snag the same items on Wayfair’s website, of course.

Jordan Peele teams up with J.J. Abrams and Misha Green for HBO's "Lovecraft Country"

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Jordan Peele is teaming up with Underground showrunner Misha Green and J.J. Abrams for HBO’s new horror series Lovecraft Country.

Deadline reports that the trio will executive produce the project, based on Matt Ruff’s anthology of the same name. As in the book, the series will follow Atticus Black, a young man who embarks on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America with his friend and his uncle to locate his missing father.

The name of the series is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, a hugely influential horror writer of the early 20th century. As with Peele’s smash movie Get Out, the series is a look at the horror genre from the African-American point of view.

Peele initiated the project, first bringing the book to J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company, and then enlisting Green.

No word on when the series will officially launch.
