UPDATE: Watch Brian Sutterer MD break down Tua Tagovailoa's scary head injury he suffered in the second quarter of the Miami Dolphins' Thursday Night Football game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.
Dr. David Chao: “I get it, there are a lot of skeptics out there with this, but remember, the unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant – the red hat independent, has to clear him too. There is one on each sideline. I get the guy or female probably lives in the Miami area but they are not affiliated with the team and not fans at all and they have reputations to protect... I got fooled into thinking it was a concussion to start with but I personally do believe that this explanation is plausible.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Dr. David Chao (@ProFootballDoc), an ex-team physician for the formerly known San Diego Chargers for 17 years, break down the controversial Tua Tagovailoa injury that saw the red-hot third-year Dolphins QB leave their game vs. the Bills with a scary apparent head injury only to return later to everyone’s surprise.
Check out the segment above as Chao breaks down the explanation from the Dolphins for why Tagovailoa returned to the game so quickly despite what seemed like a serious head injury when replays showed Tua stumbling around after hitting the back of his head on the field because of a shove from a Bills defender that resulted in a roughing the passer penalty.
