NFLPA President JC Tretter releases a statement on the way the NFL handled the Tua Tagovailoa situation

NFL Players Association president JC Tretter has issued a statement regarding Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. The former Browns lineman seems pissed that the NFL and the Dolphins allowed Tua to go back onto the field with “No-Go” symptoms.

“We are all outraged by what we have seen the last several days and scared for the safety of one of our brothers,” Tretter writes. “What everyone saw both Sunday and last night were “no-go” symptoms within our concussion protocols. The protocols exist to protect the player and that is why we initiated an investigation.

“Our job as the NFLPA is to take every possible measure to get the facts and hold those responsible accountable. We need to figure out how and why the decisions were made last Sunday to allow a player with a “no-go” symptom back on the field.

“Until we have an objective and validated method of diagnosing brain injury, we have to do everything possible, including amending the protocols, to further reduce the potential of human error. A failure in medical judgment is a failure of the protocols when it comes to the well being of our players.

“We have come a long way over the past 15 years but the last week proves how far we have left to go.”

Dr. Allen Sills said today he is going to release the entire investigation to the public when he wraps it up for full transparency. The NFL is in the hot seat right now, because everyone feels the NFL has handled the situation incorrectly.
