Tagovailoa suffered the injuries in the second quarter of the Dolphins’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals after being sacked by Bengal Josh Tupou.
Tagovailoa lay on the grass for several minutes before he was pulled out and sent to a hospital.
“I couldn’t believe what I saw last night,” Harbaugh said during a Thursday afternoon news conference at the Ravens’ practice facility. “I couldn’t believe what I saw last Sunday. It was an amazing thing to see. I’ve been training for 40 years…I’ve never seen anything like this before. I just couldn’t believe my eyes.” “

Tagovailoa later said his back was hyperextended, causing him to stumble.
