Dolphins HC Mike McDaniels gives an update on Tua Tagovailoa

Since Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa suffered a serious concussion, it has centered all the attention around the situation.

The Dolphins have taken the precautionary approach with moving Tagovailoa through the recovery process. The team already announced that the Alabama product will miss Week 5 action against the New York Jets.

Head coach Mike McDaniel voiced that Tagovailoa is moving through the recovery, but isn’t traveling with the team.

“There’s several outside specialists that we’re also utilizing,” McDaniel said via ESPN. “We’ll just take it from there, but happy that he’s, you know, you get to see him every day. It’s nice when I walk down the hallway and I hear, ‘What up, beast?’ which is, for whatever reason, he calls me beast all the time. I don’t think I give off the beast vibe, but we’ll just take it day by day from there.”

The Dolphins are handling the situation carefully to avoid any setbacks or unnecessary steps forward before Tagovailoa is ready to go. Backup Teddy Bridgewater is prepared to step in as the starter through at least Sunday’s contest against the Jets.
