Miami Dophins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a frightening injury during Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Tagovailoa was taken to the ground on this play below and had what appeared to be a potential second concussion in five days. He was taken out on a stretcher and an ambulance took him to the University of Cincinnati medical center. Later on in the evening the team did release a statement saying “he is conscious and has movement in all his extremities” but didn’t elaborate any further than that statement.
This is a disaster. Pray for Tua. Fire the medical staffs and coaches. I predicted this and I hate that I am right. Two concussions in 5 days can kill someone. This can end careers. How are we so stupid in 2022. pic.twitter.com/D8S8eEbgda— Chris Nowinski, Ph.D. (@ChrisNowinski1) September 30, 2022
Tagovailoa went down during last Sunday’s game vs. the Buffalo Bills, too, and showed concussion-like symptoms immediately after the hit but he and the team said after the game that it was a “back injury.”
Speculating is the last thing any of us need to do at this point. However, that doesn’t mean an investigation into the team and their decision making/transparency surrounding Tagovailoa isn’t warranted. The biggest impact fans and people reading this is to pray for Tagovailoa and that he’ll be able to make a full recovery from these two injuries.

This is incredibly awful.
He’ll look to make a difference this Saturday at Ole Miss.
They’ll wish they had him this weekend.
It’s time to prove the doubters wrong.
Love this mentality.
Who’s your pick?
UK offense will need to have long drives to help the defense.
Prayers to everyone in Florida.
This is getting old... fast.
