Tua Tagovailoa: what happened to him? What changes will the NFL protocol have?


The reason why Tua Tagovailoa had to leave the basketball court of the NFL in recent games it is linked to three reasons: the first, an ankle injury, the second, a concussion he suffered falling to the ground in the game against the Bills, and the third, another concussion he suffered falling in the game against the Bengals, finalists of the most recent Super Bowl. In her words, her accidents even made her lose her memory of what happened. As he himself said, “It didn’t scare me at the time. There was a point where he was unconscious, he didn’t know what was going on. When I regained consciousness and realized what was happening, I never thought about any short or long term impact, I wanted to know what was going on. I remember the whole night until I was tackled. After that, I don’t remember much from there. I don’t remember leaving on a stretcher. I remember things that happened in the ambulance and when I got to the hospital.”

Changes in the protocols

After what you Tagovailoa returned to Sunday’s contest against the Bills after suffering what appeared to be a possible concussion, the NFLPA announced it was opening an investigation into the handling of the Bills quarterback’s injury. Miami Dolphins, Well, he probably shouldn’t have played with the ankle injury. However, the conclusion was that the team followed all the protocols adequate.

However, with this experience NFL have decided to adjust their protocols, because the fact that the injury of you did not endorse his departure from the court, caused some changes in the rules.

Now the NFL and the NFLPA jointly announced that the protocol before possible concussions changed. In this new regulation, the term “ataxia” was incorporated, which is an anomaly in balance or stability, motor coordination or dysfunctional speech caused by a neurological problem. Until this change, a player with “gross motor instability” (difficulty getting up or walking, for example) could return to countryside if the doctors considered it to be for orthopedic reasons. with the new protocolall athlete showing this instability (as happened with Tagovailoa against the Buffalo Bills), he will be removed from the game permanently, since it will be assumed that he suffers from a neurological injury.
