And somehow Tua ain't.

 

Tua claimed it was his back that got hurt when he went down and he kinda hyperextended it...not sure I have ever seen someone hold their head exactly like they do when the back of the helmet hits the ground and they have a concussion and it be their back but sure Tua...we believe you.

I said as much in another thread 

 

That was not a “bad back” walk. 
 

when you go down you don’t get up easily

The Phins locker room is enjoying the win right now but every player on that team knows the organization sent Tua back out there with absolutely no regard for his well being and placed winning a game ahead of Tua's health.

 

That's a little seed that is going to grow in the back of their minds every time they have an injury and have to deal with the Dolphins medical staff.  The team has shown where they stand on taking care of their players.  If the Dolphins coaching staff, medical team, and front office is willing to sacrifice their starting QB for short term gain, they know that everyone else on that roster is completely expendable.  

 

It was a horrific move by the Dolphins to put Tua back out there.  You know it's something that would have never happened in our organization and that's why players want to play in Buffalo.

In their defence (I feel dirty) an unafilliated doctor is required to check and clear any player who leaves the pitch with beleived concussion. Peter King stated that the doctor saw Tua before he returned to the game.

Tua came up shaking his head, clearly trying to get the cobwebs out. Then couldn’t walk! How he came back to play in that game is beyond embarrassing for the Dr. That cleared him. If he had a lower back injury wouldn’t he have reached for his back in pain? Not shake his head several times and look woozy.

For the record Tua didn't necessarily win the game.  1 TD the second hald and he really only had one good play.  Bridgewater probably would have been better

 

Other than the 3 & 22, Tua didn't look overly comfortable out there. It's why I thought he was still concussed.
