East Rutherford, NJ – Quarterback Miami Dolphins Teddy Bridgewater per concussion protocol and was disqualified from the New York Jets game after leaving the game in the first quarter.

wide future Cedric Wilson Jr.. He’s Dolphins’ emergency quarterback.
The NFL recently modified the concussion protocol after a nearly two-week joint investigation with the NFL Players Association into implementing the protocol after an incident involving Tagoviloa. During a Dolphins match against the Buffalo Bills on September 25, Tagoviloa hit his head on the ground and tripped while trying to get back into the rally. Stumbling was considered a symptom of gross motor instability, a symptom of a “forbidden” protocol that required a player to be taken out of the game without the possibility of returning.
Tagovailoa was immediately taken to the locker room for concussion evaluation, but informed both the team doctor and an unaffiliated neurotrauma counselor jointly appointed by the NFL and NFL that a back and ankle injury caused him to stumble; The joint investigation found that Tagoviloa had previously reported both injuries before hitting his head on the ground.
Once it was determined that his perceived instability was not due to his nervousness, Tagoviloa passed his assessment and was allowed to return to the game. However, neither the team physician nor the trauma consultant examined his back during the evaluation, “but instead relied on previous examinations by other members of the medical staff.” The NFLPA exercised its right to terminate the trauma consultant who performed the initial evaluation of Tagovailoa after the union found he had made “several mistakes” during the process, beyond following the protocol’s step-by-step process, multiple sources told ESPN.
On Saturday, the parties agreed to amend the protocol, adding ataxia to the list of “no-start” symptoms. The changes were implemented right before the start of Sunday’s matches.
“Ataxia is defined as an imbalance/stability, motor coordination, or speech abnormality due to a neurological problem,” the NFL and the League said in a joint statement. In other words, if a player is diagnosed with ‘ataxia’ by any neutral club or physician involved in implementing the concussion protocol, they will be prevented from returning to the game, and will receive the follow-up care required by the protocol.
