Tua Tagovailoa Should Stop Playing Says Neuropathologist
The famed Neuropathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu says Tua Tagovailoa should stop playing after his hit against Bengals on Thursday Night Football.
Dr. Omalu is known for discovering CTE. ''Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy'' in football players.
Omalu is pleading for Tua to take a step back from play. On TMZ Omalu stated ''Tua, my brother. I love you, I love you as much as I love my son. Stop playing. Stop. Hang your helmet and gallantly walk away.''
The Dolphins Quarterback was sent back into game after suffering a possible head injury vs the Buffalo Bills.
The Hawaii native was diagnosed with a back problem and all concussion protocols cleared.
Just four days later, he was hit by Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou which has led to a ton of heat for the National Football League and the Dolphins medical staff.
The independent neurological expert has been fired by the NFL due to the immense scrutiny.
Tagovailoa was stretchered off the field and sent to a local hospital in Cincinnati. He was able to recover and gain all motor abilities.
He will not compete week five against the New York Jets as he still remains in concussion protocol.
The NFL & NFLPA have since agreed that their will be revisions to the concussion protocol to enhance player safety.
