The game starts at 7:15 and is on Amazon Prime, which can be watched for free on Twitch here (yes it’s legal, Amazon owns Twitch).

The Dolphins are the media darling after beating the Bills, but are underdogs to the disappointing Bengals.

I only remember because I wanted to draft him but the Cowboys took him. So when we signed him, I thought he had a chance to do something.

I think so. I do remember him with the Boys. Just saw this, too. Can only think one fell, took the other with them.

Rest in peace, sir, rest in peace. Since he loved doing something that’s dangerous, I hope it was on his “good way to go” list.

Reportedly left behind a wife and two little kids. Some people like adrenaline/risky sports/activities regardless of the potential consequences for others. I feel badly for his family. From what I read, they identified two bodies as he was apparently climbing with a friend who also fell. Tragic all the way around.

Regarding his survivors, I agree, and his companion’s, too. I guess not everyone works from the subcontext that there are no good ways to die, so least-bad can pass for “good”.

I really don’t like the Bengals uniforms.

They look like a coloring book.

Is there anyway that last week’s injury and this week’s injury are not related? Didn’t even look like a bad hit this week.

I almost wonder if it was more spinal chord related. Anyway I think the dolphins fucked up

There can definitely be an accumulation of damage

with the way his head whipped into the ground, it looked like it had some pretty good velocity.

I don’t think it was necessarily and illegal hit though – the ground appears to be what did the damage.

it dont look good on the medical staff for sure. concussions are 100% cumulative, and having them in rapid succession is not good

I think it was more spinal chord-related, too. He had a cervical immobilizing neck brace on when he left on the stretcher. I’m not an expert and I wasn’t listening to the audio feed so I don’t know if someone commented on it. And, of course, it could be both a concussion and spinal injury.

My guess would be a combination concussion and whiplash….but I’m not a doctor. I stayed at a holiday inn express once though…

That collar is pretty much automatic on any one unconscious. Mostly precautionary when there is any doubt

Kept saying last week it was a back injury. I almost wonder if something in his back or neck is tweaked (for lack of a better word)

Not saying its not, but back and neck dont cause the hands to do that. That all from the brain getting hurt. The back of your head is really susceptible to that and he hit like that both times

Back, no. Neck, maybe. But if he was unconscious and they did it, brain.

They could be cumulative, but at the speed and force he was flung into the ground tonight could have caused the same reaction on its own.

I don’t think any of us can really know, plus we don’t have the place to cast aspersions towards the Dolphins medical staff.

Was it two seasons ago where Mahomes was choked out and looked wobbly and concussion and the rest of the NFL fans were questioning how he passed concussion protocol for the next week? The onus is on the player to be honest about their injuries.

Reminds me a lot of that mahomes hit. Didn’t really get hit in the head on that one. Of course the difference was that he entered the concussion protocol.

We’ll see what happens. I don’t really care either way. Like you said, there is personal responsibility that goes into this too. Players know more about concussions now too. Have to advocate for your own health especially outside of a game situation.

Why is the Bengals coach so worked up? He’s just lucky his player didn’t get kicked out

If they purposefully concealed his concussion last week then everyone in that building should be suspended asap. You’re playing with somebody’s life.

There’s going to be hell to pay if the NFLPA finds out that they circumvented the concussion protocol.

There was a lot of whiplash on the way down. That probably played a part.

In karate we teach people how to fall to avoid that type of thing.. surprised those methods haven’t found their way to the NFL yet.

He studied a lot more of the hand fighting… but the falling is probably the most useful thing I teach because people fall a lot more than they are having to defend themselves against attackers.
