Tua Tagovailoa had a scary 2022 regular season that saw him suffer several concussions that forced him to miss numerous games as well as a playoff game.
Making an appearance on the “Up & Adams Show” on Super Bowl LVII Radio Row, the Miami Dolphins quarterback revealed he is adopting new methods to better protect himself from head injuries. Tagovailoa said he will begin doing judo every Friday to help better understand his body and “how to fall.”
“We’ve got a plan set up,” Tagovailoa said. “I’ll be doing judo on Fridays just so that I can kind of figure out understanding my body and how to fall. I’m not trying to be a dangerous person in that way, just trying to help myself.”
The 24-year-old suffered two-known concussions during the 2022 regular season. The most notable one came against the Bengals which resulted in his body going into a fencing position and him being stretchered off the field.
