Miami Dolphins fans were dealt some concerning news on Monday when it was revealed that quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was back in concussion protocol. This has prompted serious worries about the QB's long-term health and career after his latest traumatic brain injury.

The most recent update on Tagovailoa is certainly scary.

Tua Tagovailoa Injury Update

Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel told reporters that medical professionals said “it’s critical Tua worries about the day he’s in and nothing else." This advice makes it obvious that Tagovailoa needs to be afforded whatever time is necessary for him to recover before even thinking about stepping on the field again.

This is a difficult situation for everyone involved. Tagovailoa has shown his competitive fire since coming back from his first concussion-related absence and would obviously love to help his team lock up a playoff spot. However, the organization and Tagovailoa both need to make the best decision for his future. That could include shutting him down if the risk is deemed too severe.

Miami is now slated to turn to backup Teddy Bridgewater in Week 17 against the New England Patriots as the starter with Tagovailoa injured. The Dolphins are currently listed as 3-point road underdogs without Tua on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
