Fox News host Degan McDowell dismisses Tua Tagovailoa's first head injury as 'madness'.
Jesse Waters, co-host of the Fox News roundtable show The Five, lambasted an aide who criticized him for expressing concern for Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the NFL player suffering two brutal injuries in just four days. The 24-year-old was killed after hitting his head on the ground during Thursday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and struggling to stand upright while playing the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Fox News' Daegan McDowell called for the firing and investigation into why Tagovailoa was allowed to play online again as a "uninformed frenzy" with "blue check-marks going crazy in the world." But Waters insisted on his claim.

The Thursday

"The shot where he stumbles and can't walk—demonstrated an apparent gross motor instability," Waters said of Tagovailoa's related movements last Sunday. The NFL players' union was already looking into the incident, which left the third-year quarterback with back and ankle issues, according to the team's pre-game injury report Thursday.
"It's a very tight turnaround. You're going from Sunday to Thursday," Waters noted. "You already know that if you maintain one just a few days before you can easily find another one. He's at risk."

Investigation

“They are talking about a criminal investigation. There are people who should be fired within the organization- the team medical unit. I don't know how the guy's agent didn't say, 'Hey, you know what? We are not going to play with him this week. You're risking a big, big asset right there. It's not like it's a playoff. It's a shame what happened."
Concussion expert Dr. Chris Nowinsky was one of the voices calling for consequences for those involved. Nowinski, a CTE expert, reiterated a tweet posted before Thursday's kickoff, saying, "If [Tagoveloa] suffers a second setback that destroys his season or career, then this includes Everyone will be prosecuted and should lose their jobs, coaches included.

Opposite opinion

In what Waters said of his piece, McDowell declared that she was of "the complete opposite opinion".
“This is Twitter hysteria. This is going on in a blue check-mark world of ignorant hysteria and lunatics,” she argued.
"It's nothing about Twitter," Waters shot back. "Everyone in the NFL, everyone on ESPN, former players and agents are saying it was horrible."
Deegan then scoffed at the idea of ​​hiding the true nature of Tagovailoa's injury on Sunday."You have to believe that on Sunday, Tua lied, the team lied, the league lied," she said. "You have to assume that there is a conspiracy ... including the independent concussion protocol doctor, who lied about the reason he fumbled on Sunday and let him back into the game."
Waters disagreed, later arguing that the "reckless medical staff" put the quarterback at risk. Waters also claimed that players "will say whatever they want to get back on the field, and you have to understand it."
"They absolutely won't," McDowell insisted. "If it's the third week of an incredible season, he won't risk his entire career, and neither will the team."
"I'm not going to forgive what the NFL has done in the past with $1 billion concussion settlements," she continued. (The league has also come under fire for "race-norming" cognitive scores, which reportedly reduced the amount of payments to former Black players.) "But this is uninformed hysteria by ESPN."
