WATCH: NFL Fans Irate Over Scary Injury to Star Quarterback

Linkedin Share

Last week, during a game against the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was suddenly thrust into a heated conversation about the NFL concussion protocol, and whether or not the league had the best interest of players at heart.

Tua, rocked by a defensive player from Buffalo, appeared to stumble as he was heading back into the huddle – a sign that many took to mean that Tua was concussed.

After a brief locker room check, the quarterback returned to the field to finish the game, as Twitter users ripped the NFL and the Dolphins for allowing him to play.

Controversially, Tagovailoa started just four days later.  Then, the worst case scenario occurred.

Tagovailoa was stretchered off the field near the end of the first half of the Dolphins’ 27-15 “Thursday Night Football” loss to the Bengals with head and neck injuries. He was sacked by Josh Tupou, and his head forcefully slammed against the ground as he was brought down. After the hit, his fingers could be seen crooked as he remained on the ground, which broadcasters Kirk Herbstreit and Al Michael said is likely a result of neurological shock.

Video of the incident may be disturbing to some viewers.

The situation had some medical experts livid.

The NFL Players’ Association stated that their investigation into the previous Bills game incident was ongoing, and that this second injury would now be a part of that probe.
