After what transpired with Tua Tagovailoa earlier in the year, NFL fans and analysts appear to be playing extra close attention to any headshot the Miami Dolphins quarterback takes these days.
That was once again the case yesterday, as one Twitter user is now theorizing that Tua suffered a concussion in the first half against the Green Bay Packers, and stayed in the game after it went undetected by anyone else.
The play in question takes place late in the first half, as Tagovailoa scrambles out of the pocket and flips the ball to tight end Durham Smythe before being taken down from behind by Packers linebacker Kingsley Enagbare and smacking his head on the grass.
Had Tua continues to ball out after this, social media probably would have thought nothing of it. But Tua struggled mightily after smacking his head on this play, failing to lead his team on a single second-half scoring drive while throwing three interceptions in the fourth quarter to seal his team’s fate.

This doesn’t necessarily prove that Tua did in fact suffer a concussion, but it had Twitter talking, nonetheless.
Tua Tagovailoa appeared to have suffered a concussion during the first half of the Dolphins’ week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills, but he was controversy given clearance and allowed to remain in that game.
One week later, however, he was knocked unconscious after taking a hit against the Bengals, causing him to miss the next two weeks of action before returning in week 7.
We’ll see if he pops up on this week’s injury report with any sort of head injury. Stay tuned.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
