Tua spoke with USA Today at Radio Row on Friday and spoke about the time frame for his last concussion protocol and why it seemed like it took so long for him to get cleared, as he didn’t begin concussion protocol until the Dolphins season had ended.

Per Tua, “For concussion protocol, I think the team did me the biggest service throughout that. They never allowed me to go through protocol normally until the season was done. So that’s why it might have seemed like it took forever, but they were just protecting me from myself. And me and my family are very thankful to the Dolphins.” 

Tua also spoke about online criticism and social media in the clip below.
