NFLPA will look over protocols after Miami Dolphins QB Tagovailoa returned to the game

By Josiah Bartlett, Sports Editor, The Pawprint

After a hard fall late in the first half, Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa appeared to have suffered a concussion. After hitting the ground, Tua had trouble getting up and was stumbling on the way back to the huddle. He was taken out and shipped to the locker room and, according to the NFL’s concussion protocol, went through a six-step process to see if he exhibited any concussion symptoms. He returned to the game after halftime and finished the game in a 21-19 win over the Buffalo Bills.

After the game was finished, both Tagovailoa and Miami head coach Mike McDaniel said that it was his back that was the issue. Tua said he felt like he hyperextended his back from a failed quarterback sneak earlier in the game and that his back locked up after he got hit, which was causing him to stumble. Tua will be tested today to evaluate how he feels from there.
