New concussion protocols prevented Bridgewater from returning

Prior to Week 5, the NFL and NFLPA introduced changes to the league’s concussion protocols in the interest of player safety. On Sunday Miami Dolphins compared to the New York Jets game, the new concussion policies set forth by the NFL went into effect.

Early in the first quarter, Jets rookie Sauce Gardner impressed signal caller Dolphins Teddy Bridgewater, pushing him to the ground. The force of the impact caused Bridgewater to hit his head on the field. After being evaluated for an elbow injury and passing concussion tests on the sidelines, Bridgewater has yet to return to play. The injury supervisor in the stall reportedly watched Bridgewater stumble after the hit, which automatically made the midfielder ineligible to return to the game.
