Famous Concussion doctor Bennet Omalu crushes Tua Tagovailoa for returning to the game | Says Tua definitely suffered a concussion

NFL Week 7 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds/Drops
Tua Tagovailoa has been playing very good this year, but can he keep it going this week against the Bengals?

Dr. Bennet Omalu the famous neuropathologist told TMZ Sports that Tua Tagovailoa should have never been sent back to play.

Omalu says that the moment Tua hit his head on the turf, he suffered permanent brain damage.

Remember, this is the man that Will Smith portrayed in “Concussion”, and he said under no circumstances should Tua have been able to return.

But Omalu, who discovered CTE, isn’t faulting the NFL or the Dolphins one bit for allowing Tagovailoa back under center.

“The duty falls on the players,” he said. “The NFL did not point a gun on his head and say, ‘You must go back to play.’ He could have said, ‘No.'”

He said if he was the Independent Doctor he would not have allowed Tua to play in the game.
