Patriots React To Tua Tagovailoa’s Thursday Night Football InjurySam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

During the second quarter of the Miami Dolphins’ Thursday Night Football matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, quarterback Tua Tagovailola sustained head and neck injuries resulting in him being taken off the field in a stretcher to a local hospital. 

When the injury unfolded, Tagovailoa’s head whipped back and slammed into the turf during a sack from Josh Tupou. He remained down and displayed symptoms of a concussion. 

This latest hit came just four days after Tagovailoa left the Dolphins game against the Buffalo Bills with an apparent head injury, but according to ESPN, he passed a concussion test at halftime and returned. The Dolphins later reported he had a back injury. 

Following Tupou’s sack Thursday night and paramedics carrying taking Tagovailoa off the field, numerous current and former Patriots shared their reactions over social media. A few players criticized the Dolphins for letting Tagovailoa start the game in the first place.   

As of Friday evening, Tagovaiola’s health status remains unknown, but he was discharged from the hospital, traveled with the team, and shared the following statement.

The Dolphins will head to the Meadowlands to play the New York Jets next Sunday. Teddy Bridgewater would be in line to start if Tua misses any time.
