I'm not quite sure how that is possible.  Announcers are mum on it.  Tua being back in the game seems to violate every bit of the protocol.

 

Gross Motor Instability ---- Check

Confusion -----  Check

 

"IF OBSERVED AT ANY POINT ---NO RETURN TO PLAY

 

 

Tua couldn't stand or walk after he hit his head on the turf. 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing the NFL explain this one...

So what if he did? Playing a QB that has a concussion isn't a bad thing though it is obvious he has no effects from that hit.

But if all these players B word about their CTR from there chosen profession than the other players are the ones that need to police this. 

 

Or just stfu about getting their boo-boos

It doens't really matter. Tua wasn't that good in this game. He didn't even have 200 yards passing.

To the OP:  I think this is one (of many) really interesting aspects to the game today.

 

Imagine your son got knocked silly in a high school football game and literally couldn't stand or walk.  He then "comes to" 10 minutes later and seems fine.


Would you want him playing football at any point that same day?

 

I would be scared for him to play the following week!

not sure how he can clear protocal after how he looked?  That's the NFL for you - it would be like the NFL scheduling a team coming off a Monday night game to play in Miami in September.  Player safety is not a consideration for the NFL

I dont think anyone is mad. He literally didnt do anything in 2nd half.

 

It does seem to make the concussion protocol pointless though.

If they want to put their players at risk then I could personally care less..Im only worried about our players and what the Bills do

It 100% matters if people are suing the NFL for CTE and player health is supposed to be paramount. It may not matter on the small scale of the game, but it's a huge black eye on a league that supposedly prides itself on player safety .

Not just about the game dude. If you're going to flag Edmunds for a hit on a defenseless receiver because of player safety, then the league is obligated to protect a player who fell over and needed two guys to keep him on his feet. It's about the NFL double standard, not a win or loss.
