NFL-NFLPA conclude Tua Tagovailoa’s newest concussion was dealt with correctly - NBC sports

For the second time this year, the NFL and NFL players associated performed, and completed, a joint assessment of whether the concussion protocol accurately became applied to Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

The league and union issued a joint remark on Saturday.

"The NFL and NFLPA concluded their joint overview of the application of concussion protocol involving Miami Dolphins' quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in Sunday's video game against the green Bay Packers," the observation explains. "The joint overview decided the protocol turned into now not triggered. The protocol is initiated when a player receives an have an effect on to the top and displays or reports signs or symptoms suggestive of a concussion. The overview established that signs of a concussion have been neither exhibited nor mentioned unless the following day at which period the crew clinical personnel as it should be evaluated and placed Mr. Tagovailoa in the concussion protocol."

The remark glosses over the query of no matter if a person should still have examined Tagovailoa after his head hit the turf, late in the 2nd quarter of the video game. maybe if someone had looked intently, they'd have decided to pull Tagovailoa from the online game.

certainly, the undeniable fact that americans like Dolphins offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell "saw some things in the online game" suggesting that whatever thing turned into amiss indicates that, if someone had bothered to evaluate Tua after he struck his head, maybe a person would have seen the indicators of a head harm.

moreover, Bevell's remark at once contradicts the assertion that symptoms have been no longer "exhibited" except Monday.

There's no dispute that Tua suffered a concussion on Sunday. The observation, rather frankly, tap dances around the most critical question.

Why didn't someone, at some aspect throughout the game, effectively make sure Tua was ok after his head evidently and clearly struck the floor?
