What we know about Dolphins QB

Thursday night’s Miami Dolphins vs. Cincinnati Bengals matchup was supposed to be an exciting game. The Bengals donned their new “White Bengal” helmet and the Dolphins wore their aqua uniforms.

However, the AFC battle took a scary turn when Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa injured his head and neck in the second quarter. After several moments on the turf, he was placed on a stretcher and transported to a local Cincinnati hospital.

Without Tagovailoa in the second half, the Bengals would pull away from the Dolphins in a 27-15 win. However, the outcome of the game was secondary. The health of Tagovailoa overshadowed the entire second half.

What happened to Tua Tagovailoa on Thursday night?

Tagovailoa was sacked and slammed to the turf by Bengals defensive tackle Josh Tupou with 5:43 remaining in the second quarter. Tagovailoa stayed on the turf motionless, and his fingers were disjointed in what was a scary scene. Tagovailoa was carted off the field on a stretcher and didn’t return. The Amazon Prime broadcast later announced that he was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with head and neck injuries, and he did have movement in all of his extremities.
