Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa has not cleared concussion protocol and has been ruled out of the Pro Bowl next weekend, per ESPN. This has been an extremely difficult season for the Dolphins quarterback, as he’s dealt with multiple concussions. The latest has now kept him in the concussion protocol since the day following their Week 15 loss to the Packers. It’s now been over a month since his most recent concussion.
The team says Tagovailoa has had no setbacks, but they are being deliberate in his progression through protocol, per Marcel Louis-Jacques. Of course, his brain injury is extremely concerning for his future in the league, but the Dolphins believe he isn’t prone to concussions more than other players and are sticking with him as their starting quarterback.
Tagovailoa had a great season overall, as he led the league in yards per attempt and helped the Dolphins put up big numbers. He did falter a bit down the stretch, but overall there’s no doubt that head coach Mike McDaniel unlocked his potential in 2022.
