Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow spoke about Tagovailoa’s injury on ‘The Colin Cowherd Podcast’, stating that it comes with being a football player.
“I’ve had some where I don’t remember the second half or I don’t remember the entire game or I know I got a little dizzy at one point,” said Burrow. “But nothing long-lasting. “You’re going to have head injuries. You’re going to tear your ACL. You’re going to break your arm.
“You can make all the rules you want to make the game as safe as you possibly can, but there’s an inherent risk and danger with the game of football,” Burrow said on the podcast.
This exchange between Burrow and Cowherd is brought about, because Miami QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a brutal-looking concussion during Bengals 27-15 win over the Dolphins this past Thursday. Tagovailoa was transported straight from the field to the hospital.
