Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is having a rough time this season after suffering back-to-back concussions. He suffered two concussions in Week 4 and Week 16 this season while playing against the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers.
Fans have previously expressed concern about Tagovailoa’s health and how she is being undermined by the team and the NFL. A recent comment by Dolphins GM Chris Grier regarding the player’s health has prompted an outburst of criticism from fans.
Chris Grier has stated that “Tua Tagovailoa is no longer prone to concussions”. It didn’t sit well with fans, who didn’t hold back on criticizing the GM on social media.

#dolphins GM Chris Grier says Tua Tagovailoa is no more prone to concussions than any other player.
Medically, that’s just not true.
The more concussions a player has suffered, the more severe they are likely to be and the more likely they are to occur.

If there’s anyone Tua should confide in with his concussion issues, it’s the Dolphins coaching staff
They certainly proved they are capable of protecting him and making his health a priority 🙄
