The independent neurologist who cleared Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to return to the Sept. 25 game against Buffalo was fired by the NFL Players Association.
Tagovailoa briefly left that game after suffering an apparent head injury but cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol. The controversial move was exacerbated when he suffered another hit to his head in Thursday’s game at Cincinnati.
He was carried off on a stretcher after about 12 minutes and taken to a hospital but was cleared to fly home with the Dolphins that night.
After Sunday’s game, the union announced it wanted an investigation of the incident.
