Tagovailoa suffered a concussion during the second quarter of his Dolphins’ loss to the Bengals on Thursday night. The concussion came four days after Tagovailoa was briefly knocked out of Miami’s Week 3 win over the Bills with what many thought looked like concussion symptoms.
Tagovailoa was able to travel back to Miami with his team and says he is feeling better. The Dolphins quarterback underwent an MRI, CT scan and X-rays.
