Dolphins’ Tagovailoa has been with four consultants, including top neurosurgeon

Dolphins Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is apparently busy getting work done on the field — and the exam table as he progresses toward an eventual return, according to multiple sources.

According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, four independent consultants — including top sports concussion neurologist have had consultations with Tua Tagovailoa in recent days.

“His rehab work increased over the weekend to include cardio and strength training. Today’s return to the field is the next step in protocol,” Pelissaro wrote on Twitter.

Tua was able to do some light practice work Wednesday.

That ramp up doesn’t mean the signal-caller will return to the field Sunday.

Head Coach Mike McDaniels has already ruled out Tagovailoa for Sunday’s matchup with Minnesota.

Rookie Sky Thompson is expected to make his first NFL start.

Tagovailoa has been sidelined since he was on the receiving end of what is believed to he his second concussion in less than 5 days.
