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
@Zenigundam Hace un año
They're not risking his health. These guys are playing a kid's game, and a watered down version of the sport at that. They know every time they take the field that they might take a helmet to helmet hit. Tua had ample time to throw the ball away if he wanted to avoid that hit, but instead he tried to play hero ball and keep the play alive. These guys are grown men playing a kid's game. Don't make them out to be warriors. It's as ridiculous as when Kellen Winslow claimed that he was a "soldier" while the real warriors were fighting overseas in the middle east

​@@Zenigundam OP didn't mention anything about them being warriors, so no point in bringing that and Winslow up. Also, OP was totally correct about it not being a back injury this past Sunday. Anyone with eyes could see that and Tua likely shouldn't have been playing today after stumbling after attempting to walk after hitting head.

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.

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.
@miamistormz Hace un año
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Lets not get things twisted. This is 100% on the independent neurologist. The player, head coach, team doctor, and everyone else has their lane, and this neurologist was brought in to be the authority on this matter. We need a name and answers.

People need to be suspended and fired he never should have went back in the game when they played Buffalo and then they are so dumb meaning the staff they put him back in on Thursday Night Football what were they thinking they're out of their minds this just shows that winning is more important than a person's well-being life

The worst thing that has made the game the most dangerous was putting helmets on instead of the padded leather. Running back would not be lowering their head to bull rush, no facemasks to grab and twist, not diving defenders that use part of their head. Joe Pa of Penn State said it.. get rid of helmets to reduce head injuries. Rugby players actually have an above avg life span.

Two different sports. Wouldn't work the same

@@jaysonoweh2227 Football was played with leather padding before.. it worked fine. A helmet, no matter how advanced you think it is, can never prevent or lessen a concussion.. It only protects against skull injuries. Ask any neurosurgeon who is not affiliated with sports or trying to help develpe one... Those massice 6 foot sponges they wear in practice would help. The skull is like an egg and the brain is the yoke.. No matter how hard you make the shell hard and unbreakable, when you have them hit each other at high speeds, they yoke wil bang all over the inside and bang off your skull !

@@jaysonoweh2227 The helmet does not protect against concussions.. that is a fact and is not in dispute. I actually have been very involved with this as I suffered a TBI and had I listened to the initial doctor and not gone on my own to a hospital where I was medivaced within 3 hours to a top specialist would have been dead within 72 hours. I was getting wheeled out to be flown, I closed my eyes and woke up 12 days later. I have been to top doctors at Mayo and see one every other month... Since I coached football for 10 years I have spoken to every doctor on this topic and with 100% agreement a helmet does nothing to prevent a concussion.. just a fact.

@@jaysonoweh2227 The latest research finds that football helmets, which have been designed largely to prevent skull fractures and brain contusions, aren’t all that effective against concussion, which happens when the brain bounces and twists around inside the skull. “All of them were terrible,” said Dr. Francis X. Conidi, who is to present the new research before the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting April 26-May 3. Conidi, a Florida neurologist who is vice chair of the American Academy of Neurology’s sports neurology section, says the helmets’ poor showing underscores the importance of emphasizing safety in football culture:

It was so scary that he flew back with the team. Must not of been too bad.
Sad prayers for Tua

He was knocked out like a boxer... He got his lights shut off and hopefully the neck or back injury is just soreness from hitting the ground as it did not look like the impact had a lot of angle.... It is very common when a boxer gets his lights knocked out that his arms react the same way tua's did.. they get very stiff.. I remember when it happened to Roy Jones Jr... I have seen it happen in the UFC also and its the same thing with arms and hands just freezing in that position until the brain turns itself back on which usually happens in less than a minute... The injury itself is usually isn't life threatening ( if you regain consiousness in less than a minute.. if longer then you need to get rushed and checked for brain bleed or aneurysm to a haematoma. ) or permenant but might make you more likely to get knocked out with even lighter hits and if you continue it will result in permenant brain damage...

They are not protecting this man from himself. You now should shut him down for the season. The brain doesn't heal that easily. Let him rest and keep doing tests until next year. I have a feeling his career is over. The next hit might be the last.

Hopefully they put Tua back for the next game.

The only thing that still sticks with me that Nick Saban said was tua holds on to the ball for too long because he wants to make a play every play. I really wish he would have thrown the ball away, live to see another play.
@greenm0bsta889 Hace un año
He has to be out for the rest of the season. His head needs time to recover fully
@dajayjayzee Hace un año
Couldn't keep him out for a week? 7 days? Smh. The Dolphins have a lot to answer for

Thorough investigation is needed. This Miami staff is really selfish for letting Tua playing.
@AE_2023 Hace un año
It was clearly all precautionary. Anyone whos ever watched UFC could see he just got knocked out when he fell on his head. He will play again this season.
