Word quickly leaked out after the practice collision that Burkhead was the player responsible for Brady’s stitches.
Although Burkhead’s parents, Rick and Robyn, confirmed Burkhead’s involvement during a TV interview — as well as Burkhead’s relief that Brady played and the Patriots won — Burkhead still isn’t talking about it.
“I don’t want to get involved with it,” Burkhead said.
The questions, though, continue.
“A lot,” he said. “But I’m still not speaking on it.”
