Tua Tagovialoa has finally leared the NFL’s concussion protocol and the Dolphins are "confident he’ll be 100% when the time comes for football" according to Ian Rapoport of

Tagovailoa has been in concussion protocol since Week 17. He missed four games because of two separate concussions in the 2022 season. On the optimistic side of this story, Dolphins GM Chris Grier said Tagovailoa is no more prone to concussions than any other NFL player. Tua also suffered no setbacks during his second recovery. His prolonged stay in the league's protocol appears to be cautionary.

 With it already being reported that the Dolphins will bring Tua back as their starter next season, he will look to build on the momentum he built in his first season under Mike McDaniel. Tagovailoa led the NFL in yards per attempt (8.9) and touchdown rate (6.3 percent) this past year.  Despite all the optimism in the world about Tua's future health, however, it would be foolish for the Dolphins not to have a more solid contigency plan in place.
