The Miami Dolphins now have both their quarterbacks, starting and backup, back in rotation, with Tua Tagovailoa expected to return against the Steelers in week 7 of the NFL.

Backup QB for Skylar Thompson will be Teddy Bridgewater, who was also cleared of concussion tests, for the Miami Dolphins’ upcoming match against The M Vikings on Sunday. Teddy was a doubtful entity for the Sunday match as he was yet to clear the concussion tests.

All Eyes Set On Tua Tagovailoa

Because of the results of the concussion, Tua was forced to miss two games. He missed the match against C. Bengals in week 4. People wondered how he was playing 4 days after the stumble in a match against the Bills in week 3. The controversial decision which allowed his re-entry into the game was questioned. He was said to have a head injury initially, but later it was said that he had suffered a back injury.

Tua returned to that game after exiting once, authorities later said that they would review later to check if all protocols were followed. Miami Dolphins stood their ground saying that Tua had suffered a back injury, all through the week. The neurotrauma Doctor Consultant who had cleared Tua to take the field was fired by the NFLPA. He was not an affiliated consultant.

There were concerns that Tua Tagovailoa would not be able to play the rest of the matches this year. But as luck and fate would have it, Tua will be joining his teammates just 3 weeks later.

Tua, the QB for the Dolphins was off to an impressive start this season. Leading the Dolphins to an impressive 3-0 record before his fall and subsequent concussion.

Teddy who took the field for Tua Tagovailoa, against the Dolphins match against N Y Jets, lasted for a short while. He had to leave the game and follow concussion protocol.
