JR discusses how Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa wasn't protected on Thursday Night
The one who protects the black and that requires an eye for detail because when safety and well-being on the line.
It's the details that they lie even when no one else is watching everything Ranger kitchen and are here for you and all the ones who get it done with a wide range of safety products and solutions is board certified safety consultants in here to answer your question, call Granger.com just that by Granger one. You are listening to the GR sport brief on CBS sports radio listening to your support on CBS radio and we are coming live from the rocket mortgage Studios when you need cash out of your whole minutes away to get it rocket rocket can be hanging out here with you for the next three hours and congratulations. Pat yourself on the back because it's Friday and I'm here to have a good summer, hope you have here. I hope you're here to have a good time as well. Are you going to work. You will even work you going home you going out you get money you taken money. Whatever you add whatever you know and I'm happy that you're here. I'm being joined by super producer and host Dave Sheppard. We got a lot to discuss. Last hour we talked about an hour and judge tonight. No more home runs he did not hit number 62, the Baltimore Orioles, they beat the New York Yankees. The final score to the one hour and judges one for two with two walks and also strike out and so I mean either was even a pivotal point in the bottom of the eighth that the Orioles they said listen, we ate pitching to Aron, judge, and they walked him okay fine makes sense.
They wanted to try to induce a double play.
Meanwhile in the National League. Albert Poole holds congratulations to Albert, he went out there tonight and he hit a homerun number 701. It was exactly a week ago against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles that Albert Poole holds when out there and decided to put on a show hitting two home runs well right now the Cardinals they leave the Pirates to the one in the bottom of the eighth and Albert Poole holds he's one for three and that one was a big one homerun number 701 as we continue on with the show. Obviously, we are only a few days away from week four.
Which is crazy week for of the NFL season, the NBA preseason is underway, and so were going to keep things rolling. I do want to update you on our to a Tonga below a head coach Mike McDaniel decided to give us an update this Friday after the game last night. The lost against the bangles we know to a Tonga below was taken off of the few on a stretcher.
After about 10 minutes he was taken to a hospital hospital for head and neck injuries and ultimately he got back on the team plane and went home even to a Tonga below will put out his own statement on sweater thanking the fans thinking that seeing the organization and his family.
Everyone that you would typically think and we'll get to that momentarily 855-2124 CBS. That's 855-2124 CPS Brandon is cola from Houston you're on the GR sport brief show was a Brandon and what is block grant are you going I'm very well.
What's on your mind. Okay go wrong intro music get aboard, you know I break out right out of doubt that out regularly say that that far yet, go, go all, I was in game seven and had a fun time and that the Paul wall matches Mac.
You game that would lock them, but the I can't believe your coach for Miami nerd like you to revive your characters authority. I don't want to be negative. Also Your good guy like got me. I don't understand like how you let him get on the airplane back well [we have learned right and secondly found that he was clearly you know you filled out go back though. And then there would what happened yesterday how my God's nanometer was a what the blogger is watching the fight at 12 I fight with the guy you know get knocked out you guys so I did what your opinion I want to share my that that is my thing but I can't believe I can't believe that Miami let that happen with through Eileen Baker given a break from Sunday to Thursday.
Give the guy you know truly great what you think. Yeah it it was very difficult to watch.
Thank you Brandon for calling us from Houston. We all saw the game on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. We saw what took place last night in Cincinnati against the bangles and if we go back to Sunday against the Buffalo Bills last night we had on Dr. David Chow. He was a former team physician for 15+ years with the Chargers and you know he said that's it's up to the doctors there is the team doctor. There is an independent doctor on the field and everyone's job is to evaluate to a Tonga below and to see whether or not he is capable of going back out onto the field and I said this last night. You do not have to be a doctor only backup the Dolphins basically said that to his injury wasn't a head injury. It was an injury to his back. Okay look, we saw the hit we watched his head bounce off of the field. We saw him stumble.
We saw his own offense of lineman Conda well what the hell is wrong with you, slow him down. We saw the trainers run out onto the field to slow him down and stop it. Since then, we've also heard from multiple players that the NFL's concussion testing, especially on the field during the tent's answer a few questions evaluate those sent okay your good go back and this is supposed to be a a a a a new new way to evaluate potential concussions, potential head trauma.
Well, maybe it needs to be updated again.
I just can't imagine a world which will Tonga below was allowed to go back out there to play football on Sunday, let alone last night. JC Trotter. This man is as the NFL players Association president.
This is the message that he shared on sweater this afternoon.
We are all outraged by what we have seen the last several days and scared for the safety of one of our brothers. What everyone saw on Sunday and last night were called "no go symptoms without within our concussion protocols.
The protocols exist to protect the player and that is why we initiated an investigation. Now the no go that I just put in quotation marks means if a player is to go out in exhibit any type of symptoms that they are woozy days out of it, then it's a wrap. You don't go play.
Forget the testing. Forget the protocols. Forget the how many fingers am I holding up what city are you when you know I don't know what's your blood type whatever the hell questions that they're asking if you look a little bit out of it.
You don't play. I wasn't on the field which will Tonga below against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday but it was very clear. It was very apparent that this man was a little bit woozy is like that was at the pool much like the poem from Bugs Bunny is like how many cubes do you want your show goal. How many lumps do you want water took to what was out of it. I don't mean to be a doctor. I go to medical school. I fallen on my head. I've been in a car accident.
I been knocked out.
I've lost consciousness for a few seconds I played sports I know what it feels like to be like will damn that's not right that's not normal. I know it feels like to be woozy, dammit.
I'm not a professional athlete but I know what it feels like to get out of bed, get up off the floor or get up off of my couch to fasting go wool. Let me slow down and in none of those instances in my being driven into the floor like I'm in a car accident by someone who is 6 foot four, 340 pounds. The bottom line is to look out his bell rung what you want to call it having his bell rung this past Sunday what you want to say he got temporarily not the hell out what you want to call him woozy. It wasn't right. If you are okay and no back injury that makes you walk like that. It's not a back injury that sends the trainers running out to you when yo ass is stumbling around. I can tell you for most back injuries.
I'm stumbling around in my back and suck from time to time.
My back hurts. I move. I'm stumbling. I am not moving and so yeah good for the players Association look neither the NFL or the players Association is perfect. They all got Durham, the NFL is trying to make money while pushing aside all their controversies to make more money. The NFL players Association the trying to say here we are an advocate for the players and most of the players don't even participate in the players Association. So everybody's trying to huff and puff and put out their chest and say we are putting our best foot forward with doing the best that we can for our athletes in the NFL.
It's also say face we know for fact the NFL you do they care about the players on the maybe a top-level shore to the coaches care about the players sure, but we know this from an organizational standpoint. From a structural standpoint in the NFL. The players are replaceable. That's just what it is and coach Mike McDaniel, someone who has caught a lot of heat over the past 24 hours for allowing to a Tonga load to go back out there and play coach Mike McDaniel today. This afternoon he pretty much said listen, he was asked do you see any fault or are you accepting of any fault based on this to a situation this is what Mike McDaniel had to say. Courtesy of CBSSports.
The whole process for what happened on on the bills game was, you know, he was evaluated for head injury immediately. Let's that's what we brought under 10 form brought inside for his evaluated and then cleared by several layers of medical professionals who I don't pretend to be one but those people the collection of them cleared him of any head injury whatsoever. And that's that's the cover for the coaches.
That's the cover for every single coach. I'm not a doctor. We got 56789 and in years ago so maybe 10 years ago I was connected with the NFL's physician society. I was educated on how the NFL goes about maintaining the health of their players during before and after games.
Things have changed over the last 10 years I can tell you that there is a doctor for just about everything that you can think of on NFL field, there's a doctor. What is that enough tolerant hate what is an optometrist. That's the ball shop correct. This liable Dr. S there's a doctor for your bones, there's the doctor for everything there is a doctor for everything on the field is so if I'm the head coach if I got a player he's injured the head coach's job is to coach the players are that are available. The head coach is not the determining factor as to whether or not XYZ player is available. It's up to the medical staff and so the coaches will also operate in a union they covered and so Mike McDaniel can take an asked weapon in the court of public opinion.
People could say you shouldn't have played him and you shouldn't of done that and maybe should now put your Mike McDaniel you will take the approach of the doctor said he was François played him Mike McDaniel. He said today when it comes down to to a Tonga below are he did not approach him as our starting quarterback, but he took the approach of will to use a person. This is what he had to say about to be completely forthright and not even really thinking about timetables or anything regarding him as a player right now it's all about really to the person that's the you know what gets lost in all this is that human relationships okay coach McDaniel how to hello Stuart doing today talking this morning.
I think he's still feeling some of those headaches and he is a 12 hey, I think it he's probably just finishing his MRI right now and so will will find the results and that that was that's just an extra kind of precaution know things to a Tonga below what he put out his own statement about five hours ago on twitter.
By the way yes if you did not know if you were not certain of it to a Tonga below what is currently in concussion protocol.
He said on twitter I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support. Since the game last night.
It was difficult not to be able to finish the game and be there with my teammates but I'm grateful for the support and care I've received from the Dolphins. My friends and family and all the people who have reached out I'm feeling much better and focused on recovering so I can get back out on the field with my teammates listen man take your time there's a whole song about it take it's time young man don't rush. Take your time, nobody wants to see to a Tonga below will back out onto the field. I put you this way to the play again. I'll even the fast-forward button if tool Tonga below. It is able to play against the Jets that is October 9 not this Sunday in two days. But nine days from now if I see tool Tonga below on the field against the Jets and I see tool Tonga. Below are get his damn head slammed into the dam turf I'm done for the day. I'm done finished uncooked. I'm not watching no more football.
I can sit here and talk JR sport brief every day. Every night for four hours. If I have to watch this man get his ass handed to him again I'm done I'm finished for the day. At least I'm not watching no more. It's hard enough after last night's game to watch this man lying on the ground lying on the field for 10 minutes and this is the crap world that we live in you. We got people putting up means and making jokes about this man's physical state when he has absolutely or had absolutely no control over his body as his hands in his arms start to seize up close to his face. There was a possibility that this man would never move again and we got a complete jackass is making jokes about an online it's disgusting with typing human beings that we got out here want to monetize garbage just so they can get some attention. It shows you how terrible their own lives are the NFL is in a tricky situation. We sit down and watch these men go out there and and and probably in not probably the most violent sport here in United States of America. The most popular sport here in United States of America in the least that they could do for sport that we all know is violent Spitz players up and choose them out or choose them up and spits them out. What I will order you want to call it. They can do better. The players Association has to demand better.
The players have to demand better because it was sickening. What we saw last night which would Tonga below, and it's not just sickening. Anybody can go ahead and take a hit.
Anybody can have their head driven into the field, but when you see it on Sunday in agar. It's okay, just back we see it again on Thursday. You know what I don't want to see. I want to see it three times. I don't see anything they say a lot of things about threes things come in threes. I don't need to see tool bounce off of the field again. I'm good on that. I hope he recovers. I hope he gets better. I hope he gets well. The Dolphins failed. The doctors failed because common sense when out of the window, but this is what we know common sense ain't all that damn comet. We got a lot of people who run around with degrees. We got a lot of people run around with multiple degrees how many degrees you got 1234. We got a lot of people who run around thinking that they're smarter than other people because a piece of paper tells them so that is a mean everybody got common sense.
I go to medical school, but I know when you're ahead bounces off of any hard surface and you cannot walk immediately after that. Angel back that your brain and I just hope to a gets well the NFL players Association is going to investigate and regardless of what they find in the investigation they need to do a better job to ensure what took place with two of this week on Sunday and last night they need to ensure that it does not happen again.
Injuries are part of the game, but it doesn't matter how many degrees you have. Sometimes it takes just a little bit of common sense, which we know.
Unfortunately is not all that common. It's the JR sport refill here with you on CBS sports radio. The phone lines are open. That's 855-2124 CBS.
That's 855-2124 CBS did the to a situation turn you off did the tour situation make you go.
Damn I can't watch this Teddy Bridgewater had to say I had to readjust myself to get back involved in the game. I'll tell you this much.
The next time I see tool I'm going to be flinching on his behalf, and he's getting paid for the take your calls. On the other side will get it's more the games as well is the JR sport preshow CBS sports radio you are listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio. Love long-term long-term littler work on call American outreach.
She'll you have what you promise on that holy now with 855-2124 CBS is the JR sport preshow here with you on CBS sports radio right before the break we shared with you comments made by Miami Dolphins that coach Mike McDaniel onto a Tonga below or earlier today he gave an update on his status. After last night. We know he was knocked out of the game.
He was in the hospital.
Head and neck injury. They ultimately say it was in his neck. He's currently in concussion protocol. He was put on the team plane and he's home he's recovering he's resting. Mike McDaniel said that he would not have necessarily done anything different. He says that the medical professionals evaluated to both this past Sunday against the Buffalo Bills as well as last night obviously going to the hospital that game against the Bengals and Mike McDaniel, you have all things. He's not the end-all be-all. He coaches the players who are available.
He does not make the decision as to whether or not they are available. So if the doctors say he can go let him go. That's his job.
He's not the doctor. That's not to say whether or not you are a doctor or a coach that you can use a little bit of common sense and so ultimately all things considered, the Dolphins, the doctors, the team, the organization may fail to a Tonga below and it will be absolutely sickening to me. If, on October 9 with the Dolphins in New Jersey to take on the New York Jets if I have to see to a Tonga below will get slammed into the ground again I'm I'm done like I'm not in for the day. I'm not watching football the rest of the dam cooked and I'm gonna watch a lot of people don't watch everybody's gonna watch the next time to a Tonga below was on the field is going be a lot of people who feel uncomfortable feeling easy warrant with the fact that the idea that this man is out there playing ball and we all can hope that it doesn't happen again.
But let's put it this way. If to a Tonga below has a long career he can get hit again right this what he signed up for.
He's a quarterback and he thought the biggest quarterback. He's going to be driven into the ground again. Were we supposed to do hope that it's not nine days from now, the Dolphins failed in the league failed to him. The concussion protocol failed him. You don't need to be a doctor with a degree or nine cents 12 years of medical school to go to man's messed up. I've seen enough people get. They asked what did know that he got his ass. What then he can't go right now. The protocol needs to change. 855-2124 CBS is the situation turn you off Micah's call for Miami your CBS sports radio therapy are but a writer, I'm good.
Go ahead. Yeah bro, Gary graduation would cure all. I would like your opinion on something so you know that they were leaving the same night he flew back and he made. I was very very apprised of any abilities or night evaluation depend ill, depending on freedom of injury.
I was very surprised. They live in your local will know your product tomorrow. Look in on you, you know it you offer had been kind neurological damage or? If you be mine to you for the night. I am very surprised to then do that and you notify the protocol goes something something is lost in translation.
In between, on the Dalton side or the NFL side and I just like your opinion that the protocol need to change your notebook and calculate Lepic the case and review it step-by-step what went right, what Rick long or you know I don't want to for grandma Dalton Campbell.
I filled my meat… Trying that without all your I'm going out. I'm going to explain that in and give you an answer right now, Mike, and thank you for calling for Miami Solomon. Thomas is a defensive tackle for the New York Jets. He's also not a dummy Stanford educated.
I would figure he knows a little bit about something.
The way he described the concussion protocol is I want to say antiquated, but the fact is this the type of things and this is why two accident should not have been out there. What we cannot do and will I know I'm not a doctor. I don't create technology. I don't know how to run an MRI machine.
I don't know how to evaluate somebody's brain outside of behavior but there's not a want it, it's as simple as this, you go to the airport you go to the machine they call my God, you got some metal on you take your ass back out there and empty out the knife. The nail clipper. Whatever it is taken – pockets, simple as that. You get arrested you go home you throw whatever in the trash. The metal detector or whatever it is, it detects what you have on your person, it sees it, it sees it, it goes. Oh my God, you can't take that onto the plane. No go simple.
That does not exist for the NFL. We can't say all men you got your bell rung and let's run you through the machine. Let's run a wand over your head to see the severity of your a concussion to see the severity of your head trauma. That's that's not readily available in five seconds and so Solomon Thomason speaking with the New York media today basically said asking for questions asking questions on an iPad, you know, in subsequent days checking in on a player to see how they are doing is not enough when it comes down to the concussion protocol and he said there is no way to see whether or not a player is eligible or ready to go back out there.
That's why JC Trotter who's in charge of the NFL players Association pretty much said lesson. It's called a no go situation. If the player looks like he is not ready to go and he needs to get pulled that's the common sense approach. That's the approach that wasn't taken to a Tonga below identifies name is address his blood type. His dog, his mom's name on Sunday.
Maybe he could and they said go back out there and play the two assailants just my back out will find go out there and play you answer the questions. Then everybody does their hands up and says he's good he's good he's good in Armenia is because you could see him get up walk fall get up again stumble and say he's done. He does need to play that's not what took place. Not at all.
Richie's call from Houston your CBS sports radio dear are you doing buddy, I'm good. Go ahead, I would think you were that America I'm not going to go to Dr. out because I'm not a doctor but we want to lead. Not differently. Before the man couldn't get back to the huddle e.g. could you get up itself back to the huddle and for them not to recognize that there was something that will backing limit back injury he bring give the guy a week off two weeks but they want to go porno so bad they couldn't do that. The second thing Ellen thought about like good was the fairly thing you got Larry and Bonnie just go through all that the different land that would lead one last Tour de France. The 31 people took behind him all failed drug test to the 32nd want he got the gold medal but a difficult land that he destroyed lie while he did it all the teammates. Yes he did you kill everybody so you can judge Bob you know what what I'm doing wrong.
I think part of the great life and he was never found guilty of ever taking anything were given a document decreeing whatever else but land hurt people and to protect bottom yeah absolutely I agree with you.
Thank you Richie so much for calling from Houston, TX 85521 24 CBS. That's 855-2124 CBS on leave these phone lines open obviously were going to talk about some of the other games that are going to take place this upcoming Sunday. The bills are going to take on the ravens that we have what I would consider menaces just about local sucks more between the Broncos and Raiders. We got you covered the JR sport re-show your CBS sports radio you are listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio you are listening to the JR sport brief on CBS sports radio for matter spectator show relative .5 K while love you tell me my grandfather to you every night JR I Gerard Coley now with 855-2124 CBS air there a lot of things that you can get a fix of on a Friday night.
I'm not good to be upset with you if you get your fix with me. I'm fine with that. Obviously, we have two ponds and tons and tons of callers when it comes down to to a Tonga below. I want to try to get on as many people as possible. I want you to be respectful of the other callers I want you to be cognizant of the time in the limited time that we all have interest. Please just go ahead and picture point just like you coming up to the plate. Imagine that it's two years from now in major league baseball you're on the clock.
Share your point and let's keep it rolling. Shep, do you think you think some of our calls will be able to do that will remove the I think part JR I have a lot of faith in the callers I know all you do, I do. I love the colors.
I love them so. Otherwise I wouldn't talk to but I know there's going to be somebody who goes hey JR, so I want to talk about two it's on I know you want to talk about like I know I know I just want you to share your thoughts on it. Let's let's see how long this takes okay let's start off here with Rich in Chicago. He's going to be the first person hey Rich, your CBS sports radio what is on your mind, I'm fine, I'm great, rich, go ahead of their tribe. But, like the dugout and supports your point of view by about your 11, including Alabama go a long history getting beat up of the way you play I think you should be held up to what you got God of short-term careers because electron from college and because of long prayers like Manning of Brady Rogers and have a couple guys are more about but I figure heading down the wrong as well is to examples of aggressive lard.
Marge got Josh Allen outgrown his pocket pastors. And they're not as reckless on like it used to be, but you guys like Carla Murray and field Church of God. I think it had been sent and got to learn to be pocket pastors and not recklessly run around, just because they could do that college I think that the big light. You know absolutely thank you Rachel call from Chicago. I agree with you. I think when it comes down to to a Tonga below. I wouldn't put them in that category.
If we want to look at the two injuries or warhead issues that took place this week. They happen in the backfield. He wasn't scrambling to pick up yardage. She wasn't past the line of scrimmage. The defenders were were in his space and a will will open his ass, and so yeah when you run with the ball and you go you're going to increase your chances of getting knocked the hell out and Lamar Jackson. All things considered, yes you run, you have a high chance of of sustaining injury.
He avoids injury more often and people would give him credit for the in the case of Josh Allen.
He so big and strong. It's notable when he is you know what stiff arming a guy were all running but he's gotten better over the years as well to. He's a smaller quarterback. He came into the league with a hip issue. The mean these just been busted up. It's unfortunate Anthony school from South Carolina.
You're on the JR sport re-show you tonight okay. I had a good story.
I grew up in a picture and played football Earl from Kevin. All in the hospital and I remember one day at practice, the situation I would plan both ways off with and even if I got hit helmet to helmet with Batman unit was no big deal, but we're attractive and not hit the ground and I can even move the market overpayment to go to Dave Bennett Monday down and get me a few seconds the follicle you feel about Mountaineer care about me week and up everything went back in sparing you name it for scholarly value can be blindsided that like in their back and today I'm glad to try to get people but Portillo may have been in that game, I it's unfortunate will be sorts of place Anthony I wish you none but the best man okay… You have do not use well Ron, it's coliform, I am your CBS sports radio and you don't difficult.
Virtual. If a lot of noise is not big optics look really bad when you click that reality hit Eddie could get concussed and the other thing I want to say. A couple years ago Patrick Mahoney within a divisional playoff game got a concussion in the fall quarter. They took him out and come back but for next week. I said anything. Nobody said nothing protocol. It was six days and he played in all reason why nobody talked about it because you think you better get that to include one of violent here and whether he was concussed a year ago or 10 days before with that unit. He would not get concussed don't think people realize that worth of hit that he got body slam you the commentators on the radio said on the radio and the broadcast announcer got body slam into the turf. That's not a regular football.
Now the body slam and that's all had to say there is a lot of noise being brought up now, but will impact the home about a game away like the Super Bowl and hand-picked data between that's that's irrelevant. People get hit and busted up all the time that the issue here with two it's on the lower is that people can sale all of this week or last week to Lewis hits occurred in about four days apart to violent hits me. We can go through the NFL history and start pulling up we can stay in the same game.
This guy was woozy and went back into the game, but the fact is, the NFL is trying to get away from that and so hearing about Patrick my home. So anybody is a relevant for what we have seen this week and what we saw this week was just absolutely terrible journey from organ your CBS sports radio. There would make on your radio station and add them at the New Yorker about three months now and I really appreciate the way get about it with with everything you do think what I want to talk about is that with you, Ryan situation. I feel like there's gotta be somebody that going to be a stopgap to provide the players with not having to make themselves. I know that to occur, that it was okay to go and how many gotta be in there you decide not for the player not on the team but for themselves that he'd like to be able to go out here in Oregon. I will support if we have a fire that has a concussion or is under concussion protocol is six-week and I think that we need to step up and more for those players that have brain injuries hamstring they lack a long time ankle black long time.
I think that heading. Laugh just as long. Okay will thank you Jeremy for call as Morgan is there's no there's no disputing that. And there are multiple multiple doctors who are on hand who are supposed to evaluate the condition of the player has that has that been accurate is is there a a a full representation of you know is he good. Can he go I don't think so. I think that's why needs to be reevaluated and unfortunately to is the God who might pretty much push the button for change. The JR sport re-show your CBS sports radio talk about those bills and ravens. On the other side.
Your CBS portrait anywhere fans go to chair on the behind-the-scenes MVPs, ensuring everything is game day ready we see a gel seat so everything can enjoy everything and Allie keeps her stadium running smoothly from the first game starts last season. Ranger runs get it done
