Miami cleared in Tua Tagovailoa concussion investigation

Both the NFL and the Player’s Association have cleared the Miami Dolphins of any wrongdoing in the handling of the concussion of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, reports SB Nation.

The Samoan American complained of concussion symptoms just one day after playing the entire game last week despite hitting the back of his head against the ground in the second quarter.

“The review established that the symptoms of a concussion were neither exhibited nor reported until the following day at which time the medical personnel appropriately evaluated and placed Mr. Tagovailoa in the concussion protocol,” the report indicated, according to NFL Insider Tom Pelissero.

The CEO of the Concussion Foundation, Chris Nowinski, had blasted the Dolphins for not acting quicker to get Tagovailoa out of the game. He declared the quarterback’s season over.

The Dolphins have only said that Tagovailoa will miss today’s game against the New York Jets and possibly next week’s game against the New York Jets.

This is the third concussion Tagovailoa has sustained this season. Back in September, an investigation following his concussion lead to rule changes to better safeguard players.
