‘I was unconscious’ Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa discloses shocking details of his head injury

There is found a strong positive correlation between injuries and the NFL. Tua Tagovailoa, American Football Quarterback, spoke about the terrifying experience he had to face in week 4. On Wednesday, the Miami Dolphin star expressed that he almost lost consciousness after suffering an agonistic head injury in Week 4.

Tagovailoa smacked the back of his head on the ground after being sacked by Bengals defensive lineman Josh Tupou in the second quarter, and he started displaying signs of contractures immediately afterward. It was direly serious that he had to be transported off the field. While laying on the ground for over 10 minutes, the QB was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for additional testing and evaluation. Later on, Tua was concussed and had to miss the following two games; nevertheless, he made the flight home with the squad that night.

“There was a point where I was unconscious, so I couldn’t really tell what was going on,” Tagovailoa stated. “So when I did come to and kind of realized what was going on, what was happening, I didn’t think of anything long-term or short-term. I was just wondering what happened.”

The injury of the Dolphins’ QB, the second time in five days that he had to leave a game due to an injury, prompted the NFL and the NFLPA to reevaluate and revise the league’s concussion protocol.

After looking into Tagovailoa’s initial apparent head injury on September 25, investigators concluded that proper procedures were followed, but the result was not what policymakers had hoped for. The quarterback made his comeback and went on to play in the next game four days later.
