Tua Tagovailoa Has Terrifying Explanation Of His Concussion Experience

Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

NFL fans watching the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4  collectively held their breath as Tua Tagovailoa was stretchered off the field following a hard hit.

Today, Tagovailoa spoke to the media about his experience throughout that series of events.

The Dolphins' quarterback told reporters that while he remembers the entire night up to the hit, he doesn't recall being tackled or carted off the field and was briefly unconscious. 

"There was a point I was unconscious. I remember the entire night up until the point I got tackled. I don’t remember being carted off. I do remember some things from the ambulance and the hospital," Tua told the media, Joe Schad announced Wednesday.

Tagovailoa practiced in limited capacity last week and is preparing to start in Week 7 against the Steelers. He missed the past two weeks against the Jets and Vikings while recovering from the concussion.

In his place, the Dolphins started Teddy Bridgewater in Week 5 before he suffered a concussion and rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson was forced to take over. 

Thompson, who started for Miami in Week 6, left the game against the Vikings with a thumb injury in the second quarter and it was Bridgewater who filled in for the rookie. 

The Miami Dolphins, 3-3, will take on the 2-4 Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday at home.
