On Sunday, Tagovailoa briefly left a game against the Buffalo Bills when he collapsed after a hard hit. The team said it was a back injury and Tagovailoa played the entire second half.
On Thursday Night Football, Tua would suffer yet another scary injury after a sack would have his head bounce off the ground. This time he was taken off on a stretcher and transported to the hospital.
In fact, he would be taken to a Levbel One Trauma center for more evaluation.
The Miami Dolphins have since updated his condition, stating on their Twitter account that Tua is conscious and moving his extremities.
Tagovailoa hit the ground with his left elbow, back and back of his helmet. He stayed down for minutes with players from both teams showing concern.
According to Prime Video play-by-play announcer Al Michaels, the broadcast’s medical expert informed the booth Tagovailoa’s fingers moving into a “fencing” position after the hit was a “neurological response to head trauma.”
We can only pray that he will be okay.
