In the interview, Gisele revealed that Tom suffered a concussion during the 2016-17 football season.

“Football, like … he had a concussion last year, I mean he has concussions pretty much every — you know, we don’t talk about it, but he does have concussions,” she told Rose.
“And he’s — I don’t really think it’s a healthy thing for your body to go through, like, you know, through that kind of aggression all the time.
