MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has returned to the NFL’s concussion protocol, Miami coach Mike McDaniel said Monday.
Tagovailoa met with doctors the day after the Dolphins suffered concussion symptoms in a 26-20 loss to Green Bay.
Teddy Bridgewater is expected to get most of the first-team reps in practice this week, but McDaniel said it’s too soon to name a starter for Miami’s game against New England on Sunday.
Tagovailoa hits again four days before Cincinnati game in the win over buffalo. He appeared to be showing concussion symptoms, but was evaluated and remained in the game. The NFL later changed its concussion protocol, requiring any player exhibiting possible concussion symptoms, including lack of balance or stability, to sit out for the remainder of the game.
The injury comes at a challenging time for Miami (8-7), which has lost four straight and dropped to the bottom of the AFC playoffs.
