Tua Tagovailoa returned to action on October 23rd against the Steelers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, so his team could finally get their pass game back.

Tagovailoa went down after a scary hit against the Bills one week and the next week against the Bengals with a scary concussion after attempting to push through it.

Dr. Bennet Omalu tells why Tagovailoa should retire and how he should save his life and prepare for his future.

Omalu tells how he wishes he would hang it up and move on from football and find something else.

“My advice to him is, look, it’s time. ‘You’ve suffered severe, long-term permanent brain damage. If you love your life, if you love your family, you love your kids, if you have kids, it’s time to gallantly walk away. Go find something else to do,” says Dr. Omalu.

Tagovailoa was unconscious for some time after he seized out versus the Bengals when he was sacked.

Tagovailoa talks about the experience and what he remembers with the injury after his return to the game field.

“Getting carted off – I don’t remember that…But I do remember the things that were going on when I was in the ambulance and then when I arrived at the hospital,” says Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa doesn’t want to be known as the guy who had rules made because of him. He doesn’t want the new rules to be called the “Tua rules.”

Tagovailoa shows after his win in his return game how he would not like to be known as the guy who made things strict.

“For me, I’m all for player safety, but when I hear guys saying, ‘That’s the Tua rule,’ or ‘This is a rule because of Tua,’ I don’t want to be known as that,” says Tagovailoa.
