Tua Tagovailoa injury update: Dolphins QB suffers head injury vs. Bills, surprisingly returns

By | September 25, 2022

Miami was without its starting quarterback for a bit.

In the second quarter of Sunday’s Dolphins-Bills matchup, Tua Tagovailoa took a late shove from Bills linebacker Matt Milano, and on the follow through, hit his head hard off the turf.

Tagovailoa would struggle to get to his feet, and after a few seconds, would stumble to the turf.

The Dolphins would, unsurprisingly, announce Tagovailoa’s injury as a head injury.

But what is surprising is that, despite the scary scene in Miami, Tagovailoa would later reenter the game after passing concussion protocol.

Briefly taking over for Tagovailoa was journeyman backup Teddy Bridgewater, who is in his second year with the Dolphins as backup.

In the second quarter of the Week 3 Bills-Dolphins matchup, Tagovailoa hit his head hard off the turf following a shove by Matt Milano. While Tagovailoa would get up, he would stumble to the turf in a concerning sight.

The Dolphins would officially list the passer as questionable to return following the injury, and he would later return to the game after a visit to the locker room.

In his stead, journeyman passer Teddy Bridgewater would take snaps. The Bills and Dolphins would enter halftime tied at 14.
