The Miami Dolphins have been scrutinize extensively in 2022 due to their handling of the first concussion of Tua Tagovailoa, and now, they find themselves under the same microscope, as he appeared to suffer a head injury in the loss to Green Bay in Week 16, following which Tua rejoined the NFL's concussion protocol.

While there's been speculation about whether it was just symptoms or a concussion, today, Head Coach Mike McDaniel confirmed that Tagovailoa did indeed suffer a concussion, and now, it appears that Teddy Bridgewater is in line to make their Week 17 start against New England.
