NFL world outraged after Tua Tagovailoa seemingly suffers 2nd concussion in 5 days

2 Min Read

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has been having a very promising and strong season so far, but now everything seems to be in jeopardy for him.

During Thursday night’s contest at the Cincinnati Bengals, he took a hefty hit and lay on the field, needing to be taken off on a cart for medical treatment.

After he suffered a head injury last week, many around the sports world are angry.

Tagovailoa left last Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, but he was allowed to return shortly after, a decision that has resulted in an investigation by the NFLPA for possibly violating the league’s concussion protocols.

The former University of Alabama star was a mixed bag during his first two NFL seasons, sometimes flashing his potential, but overall he was inconsistent. Many were doubtful he could be Miami’s next franchise quarterback.

But he has been very accurate this season, and once he put up six touchdown passes in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens while completing 36 of 50 passes and collecting 469 yards, there was a feeling that he had arrived.

On Thursday against the Bengals, Tagovailoa was 8 of 14 for 110 yards until his injury.

Behind his excellence, the Dolphins, along with the Philadelphia Eagles, are the only team to win each of their first three games this season.

Until he is able to return, Teddy Bridgewater will take over for Miami under center.
