Tua Tagovailoa passes the concussion protocol and shows promise Return for Week 7: Reports


Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, is reportedly close to playing in the team’s Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers after passing the concussion protocol.

Since his terrifying head injury in the team’s Week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Tagovailoa had been in the concussion protocol. His previous injury, which caused him to stumble off the field against the Buffalo Bills four days prior, made this one worse. However, Tagovailoa claimed that it was a back injury.


Teddy Bridgewater, Tagovailoa’s backup, was also acting inappropriately, according to the Associated Press. During the team’s Week 5 loss to the New York Jets, he had been put in them. Bridgewater was taken out of the game after an ATC spotter informed officials that he might have suffered a head injury.

Although he showed no signs of a concussion, officials were worried about ataxia because it had just been added to the list of conditions that should not be played after a concussion last weekend.

JERRY JONES, the owner of the Cowboys, downplays reported problems with Daniel Snyder.

Ataxia is a neurological condition that causes abnormalities in balance/stability, motor coordination, or disordered speech, according to officials. The phrase has been added to the list of symptoms that would prevent a player from returning to the game and has taken the position of “gross motor instability.”

On Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson will get the start. Tagovailoa will be held out, and Bridgewater will serve as the backup.

Mike McDaniel, the Dolphins’ head coach, praised Thompson on Friday.
