Tagovailoa, Bridgewater Out of Protocols: AP source

Miami Dolphins quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater were released from concussion protocol on Saturday, according to a person familiar with the decisions.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins have not publicly announced the moves.

Tagovailoa has been in the protocols since he was injured against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 29th. That was four days after he was cleared to return to a game against the Buffalo Bills after hitting the back of his head on the turf.

Bridgewater lasted just one game in Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets. He did not show concussion symptoms, but was placed in protocols as a result of revised NFL concussion rules — changes made in response to the way Tagovailoa’s case was handled.
