Jadyn Forbes, Co-Editor in Chief

During the third game of the season, on September 25, quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, Tua Tagovailoa, was sent to be evaluated after a backward fall against the Buffalo Bills. Based on protocol at the time, he was able to return to gameplay under the assumption that it was a back-related injury. Only four days later, when playing the Cincinnati Bengals on September 29, Tagovailo displayed signs of head trauma and a neurotic spasm after an intensive tackle. American football fans had to watch him get carried off the field on a stretcher as a result. This event has not only altered the future of what is to come for his career, but also for the well-being of all professional football players in the league.
