The Dolphins are legitimately risking this man’s career, health and life right now. The whole medical staff and NFL needs accountability and full review because that was noooo back injury 4 days ago… now this 🙏🏽 Tua

@THE BEST EVER he needs a psych evaluation for repeatedly denying Tua had a concussion In the Buffalo game. Tua is crystal light and should retire. He can make more money with lawsuits

@Zenigundam They are risking their health, bodies and lives. The NFL is most definitely a grown Man's game, and those men have families too. Step on the field at running back for 1 play and call see if you still want to call those Men, kids. Talm bout hero ball because you could do it better?

It’s called decorticate posturing. It’s pretty alarming that he hit the back of his head twice within 5 days. Repeating a brain injury of this kind can quite literally cause swelling of the brain stem and kill you. Putting him in that position was gambling with his life. Hate to see this

Tua was doing great this season to change peoples minds about his play including mine. I was a big Tua doubter. He was doing so well before the Dolphins got greedy for wins. He shouldn’t have been playing. Really feel bad for the kid. It was the start of a huge turn around in his career and it’s most likely gonna be cut short by this injury.

@Manzac11 There are also players who have suffered concussions and are fine. There have also been players who crumbled to the ground with leg injuries or other injuries. it is grossly irresponsible to be making any declarations without the medical facts. Everyone is different. You cannot say whether or not he should have been out there vs the Bills. We weren't there and not present during the tests.
Manzac11 Hace un mes
@Chris Kay We've seen that in plenty of players over the years in different sports. That is a neurological issue when Tua was wobbly after the whiplash hit against the Bills. Look at how the way his body locked up after he was slammed to the ground. He should've never been out there against the Bills or yesterday.

They know his story now. They know the NFL did this to Tua now (due to all the media coverage and narrative). This is a Junior Seau event in my opinion.

I think they knew there was a concussion problem last week and tried to call it off as a back injury to keep him in the game. He needs to sit down and take a break until he gets better. He is too young to be messing up his brain. As someone who used to have seizures I know how scary it can be. Hopefully he has a full recovery soon and its only a mild concussion.

The league had to address the two tackles that were clearly intended to knock Tua out of the games. No other explanation for pushing him down onto his back and head last week and this obscene unnecessary body slam onto his neck and head tonight. He was cleared last Sunday to return, he threw a 45-yard pass he could not have thrown that soon post concussion. But tonight’s was clearly intent to harm Tua. Should be fine and suspension. But all anyone is division is the Dolphins handling of last weeks injury.

I've seen comments where people are saying he had back injuries or no he had a concussion in that game against the Bills. He might have had both. And to turn around and play only 4 days later! Sometimes secondary symptoms are worse than the primary cause you initially don't feel it tell later after it has gotten worse. Now the young man is in a very serious condition with head, neck, and back issues. Prayers for you, Tua. Get well and take good care of yourself.

Scrappy Hace un mes
The problem is they need to protect more than the qb also! So many players will play through broken bones and ruptured spleens. We need to stop feeding them pain shots and actually let them heal. Stop making them play when there is backups. Every week a player is playing under a shot that numbs his pain so he can play.

We love the game in great part because of the big hits, as a matter of fact the number one reason why football is a multibillion dollar industry and the most watched sport in the United States is because of the violent element in it. I for one am a huge football fan and have been since as far back as I have had the ability to reason but seeing Tua get injured the way he did i must admit was pretty disturbing, it gave me chills. The libertarian argument to the violent element within sports like football, boxing, mma, rugby etc is that human beings should be allowed to do whatever they want as long as they are not hurting others in the process unless those others are consenting adults. But if consenting adults want to participate in Gladiator games were they fight till death like in the days of Ancient Rome should they be allowed to do so? I personally would say “no” and I think most people would agree with me but when it comes to football or boxing which you can argue is a form of long term death those same people would tell you it’s okay. So I guess its a matter of degree. How much danger is too much danger? And who should decide how much danger is too much danger? Should it be the players, the coaches, the referees, the GMs, the fans, the owners, the politicians, the voters, the family members of the players ? Or a little bit of everyone? Well whatever the answer the truth of the matter is that this problem is not going anywhere. The only way you completely eradicate concussions and CTE from football is to completely prohibit any type of tackling and go with flag football or touch football or something along those lines and thats not going to happen, at least not in my lifetime. So we might as well get used to these type of injuries because the sad truth is that we’re going to be seeing them for the rest of our lives. GET WELL SOON TUA!

There's already a lot of deliberate head to head hits that are just ignored this season. Teams actually congratulate and celebrate a player who intentionally targets another team's guy, like there's no such thing as sportsmanship between brothers who play the same game. If they were out for the game, shamed and criticized for it, the culture would change. The pressure to help the NFL conceal concussions has never diminished, and it allows them to blame their victims for their willingness to play hurt.

Sunday was not a back injury and we all knew that. He was clearly concussed Sunday against the bills.

The TNF injury wasn’t that violent but look what it did to him. He was compromised pregame and shouldn’t have played. Dolphins need investigated.

This is an isolated incident. Has nothing to do with the Bills injury. Look up Donald Parham & Tom Savage. Both are nfl players who hit the "back of the head" hard on the ground and their hands froze up like Tuas. Parham was carted off in a stretcher. These are back of the head injuries. And the reason why rabbit punches in boxing (punches to back of the head) are so dangerous & illegal. Perhaps nfl helmets need better cushioning or protection on the inside.

Last weeks hit was 100x worse to the head then this weeks. He definitely had a concussion and got a 2nd one within 4 days, which explains the neurological damage (aka fingers).
D D Hace un mes
The way that posturing in his hands was explained to me is your cerebral cortex shuts down for a moment and your brain stem takes over briefly. It’s really rare with head trauma and more associated with strokes. That’s severe. But, the hit wasn’t severe. What the implies is SIS, second impact syndrome. Again very severe. They have out his future health at risk as there is a high probability of long term symptoms.

That looks to definitely be neurological and maybe it even goes back beyond last week that looked similar to a seizure of a paraplegic

The NFL needs to adopt what Rugby league and Rugby Union has the “HIA” (Head Injury Assessment). The Head Injury Assessment (HIA) protocol is a three-stage process introduced by teams to assist with the identification, diagnosis and management of head impact events with the potential for a concussion. This off- field screening tool includes a check of symptoms, memory assessment and balance evaluation. Only used in the professional game, the results of this off-field assessment are compared to a previously conducted 'baseline assessment', or to a normative result.

Miami should lose their other 1st round pick for putting Tua in this game. They did not follow protocol at all.

Thorough investigation is needed. This Miami staff is really selfish for letting Tua playing.

Tua's 2nd concussion in 2 wks. 2nd concussion vs Bengals was very scary.

He shouldn’t have played especially on a short week this was a mistake by the Dolphins for letting him to play

That was scary but he had time to throw the ball away and avoid the contact

yall making a lot of assumptions and saying independent medical examiners (team doctors don't administer concussion tests) helped lie and hide a failed concussion test. apparently he passed last game and unfortunately this is a severe concussion. trying to get people fired for no reason shows your morality.

Tua played hurt at Alabama. The team should protect him BUT he should also protect himself. He does not do that. I hope he is alright but he has shown time and time again that he does not know when to stop.

Okay, so if I understand this correctly the Miami Dolphins training staff conducted the concussion protocol tests for Tua and he passed. The NFL came in and did their investigation and found that the Miami Dolphins conducted the protocol correctly and Tua still passed, but the NFLPA hasn't been able to conduct their own investigation yet. Sounds like the NFL investigated itself and saw no wrong doing, when clearly something happened and they either hid the information, the doctors hid information, or Tua passed the protocol tests by gaming the system. Either way, it's a bad look all around and I hope someone is held accountable for this.

The player SHOULD be tough and it's on the TEAM to hold him back. Like Damien said this is a BAD look for the NFL. And the Unions investigation isn't a good omen

if the NFL is such fraternity than why did at least not one teammate or coaching staff step up and say they believe he should not play. This goes for going back in the past Sunday and the Thursday game, not one person. If he was my friend I would've tried to convince him not to play

The entire medical staff should be fired and sued for malpractice
