Teddy Bridgewater had to ‘snap’ out of it after scary Tua Tagovailoa injury

Dolphins backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tried not to think about it, Michael Blinn of the New York Post reports.

Bridgewater watched from the sidelines as starter Tua Tagovailoa was taken off the field on a stretcher at Paycor Stadium Thursday night after sustaining head and neck injuries toward the end of the first half against the Bengals.

Bridgewater, whose 2021 season was ended by a concussion, had to go play. Despite having “a lot going through my mind” after seeing Tagovailoa suffer a second serious injury in a week, the 29-year-old threw for 193 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the 27-15 loss in Cincinnati.

“I can’t answer that because I didn’t remember anything until I woke up at the hospital,” he said. “They said I woke up in the back of the truck, but I don’t remember anything. I got my CAT scan and MRI.”

Tagovailoa was discharged from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center, a welcome update to his concerned teammates.

“You could see guys’ spirits lifted,” Bridgewater said. “That was some great news. Especially after the results of the game. It was great news.”

As Bridgwater knows, head injuries aren’t something to be taken lightly.

“It’s very scary,” Bridgewater said of the situation. “That’s a part of the game that sucks. It’s fun to score touchdowns and make plays, but it’s one side of the game that really sucks.”
