FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is sporting new headgear this season ahead of an impending helmet ban.
Brady wore a different helmet during practice Monday than the one he has worn for most of his career.
His previous headgear is one of 10 that will be banned by the league by the end of the season because they have proven to be the worst at protecting head injuries.
The 10 helmets facing a ban are Rawlings’ Impulse and Impulse+, Quantum and Tachyon; SG Varsity and SG 2.0; Schutt Vengeance Z10 (model 204100), Air XP (model 789002) and Air XP Pro (model 789102); and Riddell VSR-4 (model R41133).
About 200 players used those helmets last season.
