Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Will Return To Miami With Team After Injury, According To Reports

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa went down, with eight minutes left in the second quarter, after suffering an apparent head injury. The quarterback's head whipped into the ground on a QB sack by Cincinnati Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou.

The team confirmed that Tagovailoa was sent to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for further evaluations on potential head and neck injuries.

UPDATE: Tagovailoa is expected to be discharged from the hospital soon and travel back to Miami with the team.

Broadcast cameras replayed Tagovailoa after the tackle as his body stiffened. Both teams gathered around the QB as a cart was called on the field.

The injury comes days after Tagovailoa suffered a questionable upper-body injury that stirred questions around the Dolphins' concussion testing.

Tagovailoa's day is over. He finished the game with 8 of 14 passing for 110 yards and an interception. Backup Teddy Bridgewater stepped in for Miami's offense.
