Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was taken to a local hospital with head and neck injuries 

suffered on a second-quarter sack in Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Tagovailoa hit the back of his head on the ground when he was sacked by 

Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou, and his arms appeared to seize up almost immediately. 

He remained on the field for roughly 10 minutes before he was loaded onto a stretcher.

The Dolphins said shortly before halftime that he was conscious  

movement in all his extremities at the hospital, the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.  

After the game, they said Tagovailoa was expected to be released from the hospital 

"I could tell it wasn't the same guy that I was used to seeing," McDaniel said.

The entire Dolphins team  and the crowd chanted, "Tua! Tua!"
