Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa was knocked out on the field with one of the most disturbing concussions ever seen in an NFL game this season. Another concussion later in the year ended his season, and has led to major questions about Tagovailoa’s NFL future.
Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier insists there’s no reason to be any more concerned about Tagovailoa than anyone else.
“From what our doctors and the consultants we’ve talked to through the NFLPA, that is not a true statement,” Grier said. “So for us, I don’t think he’s any more prone than anyone else. For us, we’re jut letting the doctors, the medical staff and the people in that field that know more. From everything we’ve been told that is not a concern.”
Concussions are unfortunately quite common in the NFL, seeing a player miss almost an entire month due to one is certainly out of the ordinary, which led to people like media personalities saying that Tua’s career could be in jeopardy. Because of that, Grier has been working overtime to defuse that narrative.
The Dolphins organization made it clear via an Adam Schefter report that they’re committed to Tua as the team’s starting QB next year.
