Tua Tagovailoa, the quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, was rushed to a nearby hospital with head and neck injuries.
In Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Tagovailoa was injured on a sack in the second quarter.
When Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou sacked Tagovailoa, his arms appeared to quickly lock up and he struck the ba
ck of his head on the ground.
Before being placed on a stretcher and brought away, Tagovailoa stayed on the field for nearly ten minutes.
After hitting his head on the ground during Sunday's victory over the Buffalo Bills, Tagovailoa received concussion testing before halftime.
The team initially indicated he was doubtful to return due to a head injury, but later clarified that the cause of his stumble was a back issue.
Later in the week, Tagovailoa claimed that he had successfully completed all of the assessments he had to do in order to play again.
Following Tagovailoa's prompt return to play, the NFL Players Association asked the league to reevaluate its concussion policies.
The Dolphins selected Taigovaloa with the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
