Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa spoke out on his injury-riddled campaign with a tweet that leaves NFL fans puzzled.
I am not sure how to take this message. Did a doctor advise Tagovailoa not to play football anymore? Is he leaving the Miami Dolphins? Or is standout Tua talking about an Injury free 2023 season?
Tagovailoa had two concussions in a span of weeks where he could barely walk straight after a couple of hard hits forced the NFL to change their protocols. He suffered a third concussion in late December against the Green Bay Packers that ended his season.
Tagovailoa had a really good time season. He threw for 3,548 yards with 25 touchdowns and just eight interceptions, while completing 64.8% of his passes in 13 games.
Taking so much head trauma within such a short period of time is very concerning for his long-term health. Tua Tagovailoa has a lot to think about this off-season.
