The quarterback was officially taken out of the game with neck and head injuries, the Dolphins announced. Tagovailoa was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center right away. The Dolphins also noted that Tagovailoa is conscious and “has movement in all his extremities.”

The Dolphins trainers rushed to the field to help the quarterback once he didn’t appear to get up. He was thrown onto his back by Bengals tackle Josh Tupou. Tagovailoa’s head hit the ground, and his fingers curled as he laid down on the ground.

The trainers brought a stretcher out to take Tagovailoa off the field, and Dolphins backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater came in to replace him.

Both teams took a knee as Tagovailoa was being looked at. The entire Dolphins team huddled around their quarterback as he was taken off the field.
