Ravens head coach John Harbaugh still can't believe what the Dolphins decided to do with Tua Tagovailoa on Thursday night. 

The Miami Dolphins decided to play Tagovailoa against the Bengals, despite the fact he may have suffered a concussion in Week 3. 

Harbaugh is still "astonished" the Dolphins decided to play him. 

"Asked about concussions, John Harbaugh said he was 'astonished' by what he saw last night w/ Tua… And he couldn’t believe what he saw last week either," said Harbaugh, via Kimberley A. Martin. 

The Dolphins insist that Tua Tagovailoa cleared the concussion protocols. Still, just because he can play doesn't mean he should. 

Tagovailoa's head injury opens the door to deeper discussion about the impact football has on brain trauma. That's a vital discussion for the sport to move forward. 

Tagovailoa, meanwhile, is reportedly in good spirits and was acting like himself last night and today. Hopefully he recovers soon.
