Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, suffered head and neck injuries during Thursday night’s 27-15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was taken by ambulance to a hospital in the Cincinnati region. Tagovailoa sustained a concussion during the game, according to Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel, but nothing “more serious.”
Tagovailoa, who was disqualified from the game, was awake the entire time and had full use of his limbs. He will likely leave the hospital after receiving his discharge and return to Miami with the team. As per McDaniel, he is in the concussion protocol.
Even if it’s a possibility in football, McDaniel noted, that was an emotional moment. “The greatest news that we could receive is that everything has been checked out, that he didn’t have anything more serious than a concussion, and that he will be coming back with us on the aircraft. All of his teammates and I, we were all really concerned.”
