The NFL and NFLPA have let their discoveries out of the examination of the Miami Dolphins’ blackout convention for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Ultimately, the report stated that the NFL found “no violations of the protocol”, but also says the “NFL and NFLPA agree that the outcome in this case is not what was intended when the protocols were drafted.”

Straightforwardly after the occurrence, the NFL and NFLPA’s position showed a misusing of the circumstance from either the NFL’s unaffiliated neurotrauma expert (presently terminated), or the Dolphins’ clinical staff. All the more explicitly, the NFL trusted there to be a disappointment in following the utilization of blackout conventions. Be that as it may, the examination has now persuaded the NFL to think the actual arrangement was the issue, as opposed to clinical staff conflicting with blackout conventions.
The entire statement from the NFL and NFLPA is linked here, and indicates that all parties ultimately followed the step-by-step process outlined in the NFL’s concussion protocol. The NFL has now signed off on the new and modified concussion protocols, which will be in effect for this Sunday’s games, as per Tom Pelissero.
