Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, was rushed to a nearby hospital on Thursday night with head and neck injuries after suffering them on a sack in the second quarter of their game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The game took place in Cincinnati. When Tagovailoa was sacked by the Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou, the back of his head contacted the ground, and very soon after that, it seemed as if his arms seized up.
Approximately ten minutes passed while he was kept on the field before he was placed on a stretcher and removed from the scene.
At The Halfway Point, He Was Conscious and Moving
The Dolphins reported just before halftime that he was aware and had movement in all of his limbs at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was being treated for his injury.
Following the game, it was reported that Tagovailoa was anticipated to be discharged from the hospital on Thursday night and would accompany the team on their trip back to Miami.
Mike McDaniel, the head coach of the Dolphins, said that Tagovailoa called for him before he fell down. McDaniel said, “I could tell it wasn’t the same man that I was accustomed to seeing,” indicating that he was able to recognize the difference.
“It was a frightening moment. He was checked for a concussion. He is in the concussion protocol, but he is being released. ” “It’s an emotional time.” It is not included in the package that you agree to when you join up.
The rest of the Dolphins squad gathered at midfield as Tagovailoa was carried off, and the fans yelled, “Tua! Tua! Tua!” Tua!
During the Patriots’ victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa underwent concussion evaluations at halftime after he hit his head on the ground and then stumbled while trying to return to the huddle.

The team initially listed him as questionable to return because of a head injury but later said it was a back injury that caused him to stumble.
Tagovailoa stated later in the week that he passed every evaluation he took before ultimately returning to the game Our thoughts are with Tua this evening, and we wish him a complete and rapid recovery for him.
When asked whether he knew with a hundred percent certainty that Tagovailoa was not concussed after Sunday’s game, McDaniel said yes, and he noted that Tagovailoa was cleared by an independent neurologist.
“People don’t stray,” McDaniel said when asked whether he knew with a hundred percent certainty that Tagovailoa was not concussed after Sunday’s game. We do not get involved in things like that.
When asked if there was anything he could have done differently following the game against the Bills, McDaniel responded, “Absolutely zero patience for or will ever put a player in position for them to be in harm’s way.”
McDaniel said that as long as he is the head coach, which will never be an issue. That has nothing to do with what I am talking about at all.
The result of a football game would never cause me to behave irresponsibly as the head coach of a football team, said Tagovailoa, who is 24 years old and had been dealing with a back injury for most of the week leading up to Thursday night’s game.
Before leaving the game, Tagovailoa had completed 8 of 14 passes for 110 yards and an interception. Every day, we put our compartmentalization skills to the test.
He remarked, “It’s not easy — we all love Tua. It’s challenging to try to concentrate, but we tried.” “It’s not easy — we all love Tua.”
