Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa talks parents' concerns for his health following scary concussion

Oct 24, 2022

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa admitted before the team’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers that his parents were concerned for his health following the concussion he received a few weeks ago.

Tagovailoa started Sunday’s game against the Steelers – his first game since the head injury against the Cincinnati Bengals. He talked to NBC Sports’ Maria Taylor beforehand and was asked about his parents and their concerns.

"It was a little tough for my parents," he told Taylor. "That was their biggest concern prior to the injury and then things in the hospital and then after that and then going through the interview process, going to see second opinion doctors. But for me, I love football. I just love it. I love the feeling that it brings. I love that football can help change peoples’ lives. I just missed it. I just missed it, missed playing."
