False. You can’t watch that play against Buffalo, see him get up shaking his head and stumbling to the ground, being held up by a teammate, and possibly think it was a back injury.
He should have been held out, regardless of how he felt at half. The fact an INDEPENDENT doctor cleared him shows there are issues with the process.
Four days later and he takes a hit and his body goes limp. Another head injury. One of the worst things you can do is pile a head injury on top of a recent head injury.
The Dolphins and the NFL should be ashamed.
Not surprising. Was only a matter of time before the offense was going to impact JT.
Teams just know how to attack it, especially with Ryan at QB. I think it was @chad72 who said defenses are going to jus choke the middle. And that’s what they are doing…and will continue to do because the passing offense isn’t a threat.
Tossing 50/50 balls down the sideline seems like a very inefficient way to combat this. The offense just needs a makeover.
With Tua, it was obvious on Sunday that something was wrong with him, the way he was staggering. It reminded me of a game in 2011 in which Chargers guard Kris Dielman was stunned and staggering in New York against the Jets, but continued to play. He suffered a grand mal seizure on the plane back to San Diego and never played again, retiring 4 months later.
I don't think this is it for Tua, but IMO he shouldn't have been back on the field 4 days later, whether it was his head or his back that was hurt last Sunday. Instead of letting him rest for virtually 2 weeks and come back 100% next weekend against their divisional rival Jets, now they've lost him for awhile, the length of which is currently unknown.
