On Wednesday, the Alabama Crimson Tide alum recounted the moment and said he doesn’t even remember the hit.
“There was a point I was unconscious,” Tagovailoa said. “I remember the entire night up until the point I got tackled.
“I don’t remember being carted off. I do remember some things from the ambulance and the hospital.”
Tagovailoa has been sidelined ever since he was stretchered off the field. He had a similar hit to his head in a game against the Bills and was wobbly as he tried to walk. He was eventually allowed to return to that game.
Whether the Miami signal-caller should’ve been playing in the first place became part of the conversation following his injury just days later. In the aftermath, there were reportedly “several mistakes” by the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant who helped clear Tagovailoa to return against the Bills and the players union unilaterally fired the consultant.
Tagovailoa, who cleared concussion protocol last week, is in line to start against the Steelers this week on “Sunday Night Football.”
