Nyheim will likely not return to the game considering what happened to Tua Tagovailoa.
The new NFL-NFLPA protocols have not been finalized but the message in the joint statement last week regarding “gross motor instability” was clear. Nyheim Hines won’t be back tonight. Just hope he’s OK. https://t.co/0klfETjy4T
