Tua Tagovailoa enters concussion protocol during Dolphins playoff

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has entered concussion protocol again.

After a miserable second half of football against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon, Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel announced Monday that Tagovailoa will enter concussion protocol. The team does not know when the third-year quarterback suffered the concussion.

“Nobody recognized anything as far as a hit goes,” McDaniel said. “It’s something he met with doctors today and discussed some symptoms.”

Some believe Tagovailoa suffered a head injury late in the first half and was cleared to play the second half, which definitely backfired on the Dolphins. His head can be seen bouncing off the ground very similarly to his concussion against the Bengals earlier this season.

Tagovailoa is now a doubt for the Dolphins’ crucial game against the New England Patriots next week, which is a must-win for both teams’ playoff hopefuls. According to McDaniel, backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will take most of the first-team reps in anticipation of starting against the Patriots in PKBborough.

The 8-7 Dolphins and 7-8 Patriots will play at 1 p.m. on New Year’s Day. Miami won the first meeting 21-19 in February.
