The Tua Tagovailoa has reached the mainstream, and the NFL is trying to do damage control.

On Sunday, Tua was allowed to return to the team’s game against the Bills after stumbling off the field.

Tua was then cleared to play in the team’s game against the Bengals on Thursday night football, where he was carted off the field after taking a hit to the head.

An irate Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. sent the NFL a letter asking why Tagovailoa was cleared to play.

On Saturday, the NFL and NFLPA announced they planned to make changes to the concussion protocol after the Tagovailoa controversy.

The NFLPA also announced they had fired the independent doctor who cleared Tua.
