    As a Bills fan, I'm worried for Tua. I so much wanted Tua to be alright. He is an excellent example of a human and especially a role model. Prayers for Tua and his family. I thought about Tua when he was injured when the Bills and Dolphins played last Sunday. Thought it was weird that he was back on the field so quickly. Get well Tua.

    I had a TBI when I was just a bit younger than he is. It was the most challenging thing I have ever gone through. I went from, time of my life, to crushing depression with no loss of limb to explain it. Depression can come out of nowhere after TBI. I hope he understands that situations are situational, and the feelings that go along with those life changes can be hard to handle with style and grace. Life’s good my man. We are all wishing you well from a good and real place. Much love :)

      Well said. I was rear ended by a drunk driver while stopped at a traffic light. Took me more than six months before I felt close to normal. But the most frustrating thing was that I soon looked just fine and I know some thought I was malingering. Best to Tua.

    This happened to my son his freshman year during a football game. His arms locked up just like this as he laid there for about 10 seconds and then tried getting up. Took him to the hospital and showed the video to the ER Dr who said that was classic concussion posturing and he had a number of tests done. He was in concussion protocol for about 4 weeks and then played one more game that season but was really hesitant and scared so he never played football again.

      @John Swain he was in concussion for 4 weeks. He didn't play after 4 weeks it wasn't until towards the end of the season. However we listened to the neurologist he was seeing and that specialist gave us the all clear so we listen to actual doctors rather than random people on the internet. Thanks for trying though.

      @Rogelio Paredes my son is tall and thin and not built like an athlete but he really wanted to play. He only played one more time after that but was anxious so decided not to again

    • Nicole Burns
      Nicole Burns 4 jam yang lalu +2

      @Rogelio Paredes he was out of school for about a week. Lights bothered him and his short term memory was affected. There is a yest they do where they would tell you random words and you had to repeat it and then they would add words and have you repeat it. He struggled with that for a week. He had MRIs and CT scans which didn't show any swelling or bleeding which was awesome but he would get headaches for months after. He is ok now. Everything back to normal but it did take a while. He was playing safety and went to tackle a fullback who was about a foot taller and outweighed him a good 100 pounds and he was pushed back and hit the back of his head on the ground. He also had whiplash which could have been why the headaches. The neck injury lasted longer than the concussion side effects.

    I was watching live and the fact that he got cleared to leave so fast and will be traveling back with the team.. that’s surprising the crap out of me. It’s like this dude can get hit with a truck, wake up and start walking again like he’s super man. I truly hope he’ll be okay and nothing is going on. Being a mad supporter of Tua and a Dolphin’s fan.. this breaks my heart seeing our QB continuously getting hurt like this..

      @ᔆᵒᵉ what this boiling down to, and Miami is gonna get hammered for this now, is tua apparently cheated the protocol last week, dolphins went along with it as did the NFL. Now because of last night, the door is wide open and many more people are asking questions. I don't think the NFL really cares about player safety at all, cause someone exciting will come along to make them money . I don't like the dolphins as a team, but I never, ever ever ever want to see someone's career end due to negligence from the team and NFL.

      Muhammad Ali was like that - the guy took tremendous blows to the head, and still won the fights. In one fight, he got saved by the bell, and between rounds he tried to get up to start fighting again way before the bell rang.
      In the end, Ali's brain was turned to mush. I'm disgusted by how the Dolphins handled this, and they suddenly went from a team I like to a team I dislike.

      @George i agree with you completely and thank you for your service. I apologize i didn’t mean to make it sound like he’s “okay”. It was more of a “holy shit they let him out?” Kinda thing. I understand wanting to be strong but this isn’t it. He needs to be properly evaluated and not just discharged because someone is saying he’s “ok”. They have to know someone’s bsing or someone’s just not doing their job.

    Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins suffered 2 concussions within 4 days of each other in 2010 and ultimately didn't return to playing again until well into the 2011 season (he also just suffered another concussion in practice for this upcoming season). He admits that he still has occasional headaches and memory lapses. If professional sports (including the NFL) don't do something to develop and improve head protection the game could be threatened.

    I’m a college student majoring in sports medicine and we literally learned about neuro brain injuries last week.

Injuries like these take several weeks to be reevaluated, and he should not have been playing this week or last weeks half. This is ridiculous

      @my music didn't say he doesn't provide accurate information.
      He's likely spot on, that's not the issue.
      Like I said, when I first saw his videos I thought he seemed genuinely concerned and provided accurate info.
      The problem is that he has made a game of this. Within hours usually, he has a medical take on a horrible injury, just when people would be frantically looking for any scrap of information to feed their unhealthy, morbid need to know insecurity.
      He profits the most at the time of the injury. Like a guy shouting to passing cars the status of the injured in a car pile up on the freeway.
      My opinion of him has changed only because of that. Not disputing his knowledge or expertise.

      @Open Waters how about if he just genuinely wants to educate or inform the public? You say this guy is an "ambulance" chaser, maybe he is or maybe he isn't but he did provide very useful information particularly the reason tua's hands and fingers were positioned the way they were.

      @Open Waters - does it matter if he’s doing these videos for the clicks or not? There’s clearly enough interest. Most IDclipsrs do it for money. If money wasn’t there we would not see even a tenth of the content. Of course it’s speculation. But it comes from experience and education. He’s just giving us his professional perspective of what he sees on video. I personally wouldn’t have known what the hand stiffness meant in terms of brain injury so I learned something.

      He's an online ambulance chaser.
      As soon as there is a sports injury you can be sure you will see a video from this guy.
      I stumbled on this channel once after a high profile basketball injury and thought at first that it was neat to get a professional opinion on the injury.
      Now I've realized that this guy must be monitoring sports media for such injuries and he leaps into action right away taking advantage of the high public interest in the athletes injury.
      Lots of clicks, lots of traffic. Right place, right time. Location, location, location.
      As well informed as his take may be, it's still just speculation as he is not on site to directly assess.
      Instead he profits off of others suffering and the public's morbid need to know right away how badly hurt the guy they just saw on TV is.
      I understand this will be an unpopular take but I've seen him pop up too many times after injuries to big name athletes and it's really just profiting off of pain and suffering of the affected athlete by exploiting the morbid curiosity of the public. Similar to people slowing down passing by an accident on the highway.
      Imagine how awful it would be if some guy were standing next to the wreck of automobiles telling everyone who slowly went by how badly he thought everyone was hurt.
      This has become morbid and feeds an unhealthy need many people have to know everything now.
      Sad state of society.

    Being someone who had this happen to them their senior year of high school, I think the outrage is completely warranted. When it happened to me, everyone thought I was going to die, and I probably should have. One of my assistant coaches was also an anesthesiologist, repeatedly told me how extremely lucky I was to be alive. Also the day after i was knocked out, I passed my concussion protocol with flying colors. My Head CT and MRI was also negative. Needless to say even though I passed, I had to take a lot of time off and I really wasn't ever the same since. I had short term memory loss for a few weeks and have struggled with long term memory ever since. Depression, anxiety, trouble concentrating, sleep issues, and even PTSD plagued me for years after it happened. Not to mention, I became very isolated, my high school friends never looked at me the same and some even would get mad with me for making such a "stupid decision"(As I tried to rush myself back from a previous concussion). Many slowly started distancing themselves if not completely cutting me off. Three years after the event and I am doing well, but still struggle to do very simple things. I hope if there was any type of misconduct that it gets handled well for Tua, he had a million times more potential than me and I would hate to see someone that talented tread the path that I did.

    Dr. Sutterer just came across your channel from this injury. As a chiropractor I did not buy that Tua had a back injury from his previous hit against Buffalo just a few days ago. I see plenty of back and neck injuries both with MVA and sports injuries and I agree with your assessment he sustained at least a mild concussion last week and severe secondary concussion the previous night with decorticate posturing. It is sad to see something like this happen and I hope he takes whatever time is needed to heal.

      @FutbolSkillz12 I do, I played Highschool football while concused many times. What the public doesn't realize, you run plays over and over in practice, it becomes engrained in what I would guess is a more rudimentary part of the brain, the same place where tying your shoes and pulling your pants down to piss resides. In other words, you can play Football, Box, fight in MMA while completly concussed and out of your mind ( probably the same gene that allows blackout drunks to keep walking around) I had one of my best games as a running back in HS when I recieved a massive concussion in the first quarter; for the rest of the game it was like I was on acid, I saw flashes of color and basically fireworks visually, whenever I took a decent hit or turned my head to fast, but I knew where to go every play just on instinct. If you asked me what 2+2 was, I probably couldn't answer. The amount of training these athletes put in, is to the point that they're bodies can go on on auto pilot and still perform at peak level. The same thing Navy Seals and special ops military train for.
      As crazy as it might sound, there are some humans, that under the right circumstsnces (war or a football game etc) operate better in that state, because most of your normal faculties are disabled, like fear or self preservation.

Not even close, but I still agree with him.

    What fascinates me on both the Bills case and the Bengals case is how Tua in the first case completely let's himself fall flat on his back which at the LEAST is gonna knock the wind out of you, and how in the second case he understandably thought about tossing it for an incompletion AS he was being taken down... you can see the arm motion mid-sack, but again neglected to mitigate anything about the fall itself with his own body movement. Really hope he can realize that himself too and cover himself up more to prevent damage next time.

    Ten years ago before targeting you'd see WRs go over the middle, get blown up and come down with what we called "alligator arms"; it happened so often we came up with a name for it. I've always loved football but seeing that always made me very uneasy.
    As someone who had a several head injury when I was 11 (fractured skull, bruised brain and loss of hearing in one ear for 6 weeks because it filled with blood) I certainly sympathize with anyone like Tua who gets a serious head injury.

    I am a doctor too-not sports medicine or neurologist but an OBGYN in practice for 32 years. Nevertheless we are all trained as doctors to learn all aspects of medicine and what happened to Tua was bad. Clearly, the hand contortions indicate significant brain trauma. The Tua injury is so sad. The Dolphin organization and team doctors really failed him and probably ended his career. If he were my son I would not want him to play ever again. In medicine we know that repeated concussions just raise the risk of long term injury and deficit to the brain especially after a severe concussion. Just proves how violent this sport can be. I don't think the rusher was malicious here. The tackle and fall to the ground with two large men is going to happen when the two collide.
    Also points out how bad things can still happen despite all the rules put in place to protect the QB. In football it appears that some players can't help themselves either and will disregard the rules just to make the hit. We have seen many occasions when rusher maliciously hits the QB even after the ball has been released. They just cannot stop themselves for whatever reason-their nature to hit? how they were trained? they don't care? who knows.
    Just sad for Tua. Hope that in the end he will be OK.

Anyone with medical training that said he passed a concussion protocol was lying their a$s off and they should be fired for allowing him back on the field. That could have been fatal last night, it's absurd that they let him play five days after a hit like that. Fire everyone involved in that decision.

      @herogibson listen man, stop playing dumb. How are you gonna say it was probable that he didn't suffer a concussion prior to this hit when medical consensus in the public sphere (outside of the docs who cleared him ofc) all opined that it was likely that he did based off the method of injury & the clinical signs presented for the whole world to see on the live broadcast? Why do you think there's an investigation in the first place? Obviously none of us here can formally diagnose him as we are not neurologists but one doesn't need to be a specialist to reasonably conclude when someone suffered a brain injury. You're telling ppl to let the team medical professionals worry about him when the entire point is that this man's health was needlessly jeopardized due to the negligence of said medical professionals, likely due to conflict of interest at the behest of an institution prioritizing success & profit margins over the safety of its players. And what is the point of the last sentence of your comment? You're telling ppl to ignore this because it doesn't concern them personally? In that case, why'd you even bother to reply to my comment?

      @King Bee players don't just get to say I'm ok and overrule the Dr. You can look at the hundreds of previous players in concussion protocol and see that some of them are kept out for several weeks against the teams and their own want to play. The independent Drs don't give a crap about if the dolphins win or not when it comes to this. The problem is with any injury that you cant physically see. It is hard to determine just how bad it is. If he wasnt showing signs of a concussion after the initial stumbling. They can't just say that he isn't allowed to play. Especially after they examine him on the sideline and he doesn't exhibit any signs or symptoms of a brain injury. In my opinion the right thing for the team to do is to just shut him down last week and this week just to be safe. Then revisit it the following week.

    I think this is on the Dolphins for risking their QB’s health and life for an 4-0 start instead of just starting Teddy and giving Tua a week more to recover.
    Tua had a major concussion a few days ago when they played the bills. Now again but it looks even worse and keep in mind that when you already have a concussion, getting another one on top is like 10 times worse and can lead to serious long-term damages and brain injuries.
    This is getting ridiculously.

    Question: He got cleared to leave the hospital and fly back with the team in (what felt like) a very short amount of time. Are they mainly checking for neck/spinal injuries and internal bleeding before giving that clearance? This is certainly outside of my field, but shouldn't swelling be of concern too?
    I sprained an ankle about 12 hours before a flight and it blew up while I was in the air (and I had spent all day with it elevated and iced). Of course, there is some gravity effect confounding the swelling in these situations, but it still (minimally) seems a little quick.
    Also, I'm new here because of the Tua videos from the last few days, fantastic content!

      @Chris Tony G literally said “I know we shouldn’t say it. But tua came up to us and stuck to the script and told us he had a back injury” Tua is a grown man and can make his own decisions. If he “stuck to the script” 4 days after the injury that’s on him too. But that’s if you really need to point fingers instead of just chalking this up as a classic instance of a football player having bad luck.

      @1320 Jedi no, Tua cannot be blamed. The whole point of the independent medical team is that it’s to protect players and coaches. He had a head injury, he’s not exactly in the right kind to make that decision for himself, especially with all the pressure on him. He gets paid millions of dollars, and has been told by everyone this year that it’s a, “prove it” year for him. Knowing that, coupled with the added impulsiveness of someone with a concussion, you cannot put ANY blame on Tua. The fault is on the doctors, and the team who decided he was okay to send back out there.

    Very sad to see a young athlete like this not only get hurt but continually get hurt in majors way throughout out his career. I hope he is able to bounce back and be happy and healthy.

    I'm a Bengals fan and missed watching the play where Tua's head hit the ground. All I saw initially was Tua lying on the ground and then being taken away on a stretcher. Having watched it since the game ended, I'm horrified by what happened. I wouldn't want that to happen to Joe Burrow or any other player in the NFL. The league needs to review the concussion protocol and maybe hold players out from a game or two to limit repeated exposure to head trauma.

    I totally concur with you Dr.
    This is very upsetting... This could easily lead to epilepsy.

    I'm no Dolphin fan but I am from Hawaii so I watch and cheer for my guys in the NFL from Hawaii. I'm just so upset that the medical staff with the Dolphins didn't hold Tua back this week. I mean just about anyone that saw the tape from last week KNEW Tua had a concussion and now this. F' that staff, they didn't protect their patient like they have SWORN to do.

    although I agree with you on the video, I would disagree to say any sport injury can happen. Anyone who has played a sport knows this can happen from peewee football up to the NFL.We need to know that these things can happen and hopefully are rare. If he was obviously cleared to play, I would hope that the NFL has a system to screen and insure if he does play that he isn't injured.

    I am a huge Tua fan. He played for Alabama, RTR, and was outstanding. I don't watch the NFL games but do watch a little of Alabama players in the NFL. Tua is so fun to watch. He is one of the best quarterbacks I have ever seen. My most sincere thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as he makes his recovery. God speed Tua. Alabama Loves You. ❤❤❤❤❤🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈

    The fact that Tua just had a concussion 4 days ago and now this 2nd head injury during this game made it really that much more severe than normal...he may never fully recover from this head injury... prayers up for TUA🙏🏽

      @Makai Maukaprayers for tua,, I'm curious about this comment can you tell me more. (My opinion on this)you can't really judge an intent to harm tackle. Unless it's crazy blatant. I look back earlier in this game and see a low hit called on the bengals for a 15yard penalty. When watching the replay closely we can see the defender trting to tackle Tue and losing his footing causing Tue to be hit low. (Total accident) then we get to the play with this serious injury and I can't say that it was anything more than an aggressive tackle. 340lb has some weight behind his tackles and he's paid to tackle qbs. Then lets put ourselves in the defenders position when it happens. He's thinking I have contract bonuses I can hit for x amount of sacks (this is the mindset for alot of players) so when it happens he's just thinking get him to the ground as fast as possible. You know what I mean here right? Like what bonuse does he get to hold the quarterback upright anylonger than nessesary when every game a qb gets 1 away last second. I'm just seeing if there's a Solution to this obviously we can't make American Football 2 hand touch or flag football. There's other leagues for that. My opinion is as sad as this is I don't think it can be avoided it comes with the sport

    If the injury last week he sustained was a back injury and he was wobbly, why didn't they take that injury also serious and pull him out ( even though everyone can clearly see he has concussed). Also as he's falling it looks like he was kind of out of it at that point and his body stiffened up. Prayers for Tua.

    This is why I’ve lost interest in football over the years, the concussion issue makes it way too dangerous. In this case it looked like a severe concussion at the very least, I hope Tua is ok🙏

    • John Swain

      In this case, it was completely avoidable, which is what makes it especially awful. A concussion this severe is hard to come by, unless the staff are such complete A-holes as to have a player play right after sustaining a concussion.

    4 days after a concussion then this had to happen. A brain can’t have continuous head trauma like this in such a short period , he needs a full recovery even he has to take 4 weeks off. Health is more important then winning and satisfying your fans. Prayers go out for this phenomenal athlete ❤

    Great break down doc !! I personally feel like Tua shouldn't have been out on that field so early he should have sat out even if it was a "back" issue which we all can agree it didnt look like one esp the way he grabbed for his head an tried to shake the stars away ive been there I know that feeling an i dont believe it was a back injury with the first hit !!! I hope an pray Tua is going to be ok!

    After watching that, especially after what happened last Sunday, the game just felt sour to watch. While only those who diagnosed him last Sunday know what actually had happened, it just still feels wrong. Even if he didn't have a concussion last Sunday, he still hit his head hard on the ground. Having that happen again so soon just makes me uncomfortable.

      This is one of the reasons I rarely watch games anymore and instead watch weekly recaps on the Urinating Tree channel. Football is an interesting game, but I also know these guys are getting brutalized on the field with impacts the human body isn't meant to withstand. Tua seems like a good guy and I just hope he doesn't have lifelong consequences for playing football.

    Many years ago, long before the initials, "CTE", were part of our sporting vocabulary, my father shared with me his opinion about football. He told me that he felt professional football was simply too dangerous and violent to justify its continued existence.
    To be clear, he was a fan of the game - as am I. He explained that the players are too big, strong, quick and explosive. The size and speed of the players, combined with the inherent violence of the game, are incompatible with health.
    I don't think he was mistaken.
