Tua Tagovailoa's concussion is already forcing the NFL into change

While you’re waiting for a big Monday night…

• Week 4 of 2022 will forever be remembered for what happened in its first game, and how Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion impacts the NFL going forward. And if you need proof that it’s a very real flashpoint in the league’s sticky concussion history, there are three tangible things I can point to that illustrate it.

First, as far as I can tell, there was only one player who was evaluated in-game for a head injury on Sunday—Chiefs saftey Justin Reid—who wound up reentering a game. There was also some delay in catching Bucs tight end Cameron Brate’s head injury, but once he was pulled from the game, he didn’t go back in. And it sure doesn’t seem like a coincidence that, three days after the Tagovailoa incident, teams across the NFL would err on the side of caution.
