Tua Tagovailoa is in concussion protocol, but he continues to be involved in daily things with the Miami Dolphins.
Mike McDaniel, Dolphins head coach, ruled the third-year quarterback out for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
Tagovailoa suffered a head and neck injury versus the Cincinnati Bengals and had to be taken to a hospital. According to NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe, he has been smiling, joking around, and talking with teammates. Tagovailoa’s MRI, CT scan, and X-rays came back clean, but he does have a concussion. Wolfe said the Dolphins are being cautious with Tagovailoa, despite wanting to be involved and helping the team. Teddy Bridgewater will start for Miami moving forward until Tagovailoa is healthy again.

Wolfe said the former College Football Playoff National Champion is doing well. Tagovailoa has been helping Bridgewater and rookie Skylar Thompson in meeting rooms. Miami is 3-1 with Tagovailoa and looks forward to having him back soon.
