However, like fans sitting inside Cincinnati’s Paycor Stadium and those watching at home from afar, when Harbaugh watched Tagovailoa’s head hit the ground during a tackle made by Bengals nose tackle Josh Tupou, he could not believe what he saw. Furthermore, Harbaugh could not fathom Tagovailoa’s reaction from Miami’s game against the Bills on Sunday, one in which the Dolphins signal caller left the game before returning after he cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol.
“It was just something that was astonishing to see,” Harbaugh told reporters on Friday. “I’ve been coaching [college and NFL] for almost 40 years, and I’ve never seen anything like it before. … I really couldn’t believe it was something that I was seeing.“
As Tagovailoa was stretchered off the field with head and neck injuries during Miami’s 27–15 loss to the Bengals, Harbaugh believes there comes a time where coaches must make the difficult decision to tell players “no” they can’t play after a vicious hit or anything that puts a player’s health in harm’s way. “Sometimes, you just have to tell them, ’No.’ … No has to be the answer,” he added.
Harbaugh referenced the concussion of Ravens wide receiver Devin Duvernay, who scored three touchdowns in the first two games of the season, suffered after being hit in the helmet after a 16-yard completion in the fourth quarter of Baltimore’s 42–38 loss to the Dolphins in Week 2. While Duvernay did not have many symptoms, he was “out” from the game and most of the week until Sept. 23 when he was cleared leading up to Ravens’ game on the road against the Patriots on Sunday.
“I think that’s the approach you take,” Harbaugh said. “Then sometimes, guys might be there physically where they’re sound, but they are not confident yet. You don’t put them out there until they’re ready in their minds. The game is too hard. The game is too tough for a player not to go out there who is confident in his own ability to protect himself and play well.”
A day after the horrific injury, Tagovailoa remains in concussion protocol but released a statement saying that he was “feeling much better” and focused on recovering to get back on the field with his teammates.

Hailey Bieber was in Paris earlier this week which means one thing: lots of good fall outfit inspiration. She definitely delivered this time, especially with an all-black look that touched on multiple trends. Bieber wore a leather Harrington-style jacket over a black turtleneck but it’s her bottom half that really inspired us to to share this look.
Bieber paired the jacket and turtleneck with a special pair of skinny flare-cargo hybrid pants (that further prove that flares are back, in case you had any doubts). And if you find yourself conflicted about which shoe style to wear with them, just let Bieber’s feet be your guide. She wore a pair of pointy-toed boots (Balenciaga Cagole Boots, to be exact), displaying that they’re truly the perfect shoes to wear with flared pants and jeans. The reason? The elongated toe sticks out beneath the wide leg of the hem as opposed to disappearing beneath it. And while you don’t have to wear pointy-toed boots per se, we found several cool pairs for you to shop below, along with some of our favorite flares on the market. Thanks for another great styling idea, Hailey.
Warner Bros. Discovery’s CEO David Zaslav seems to be trying to squash rumors that he wants to sell the company to the likes of Comcast. According to a report from Deadline, he told employees that “we are not for sale, absolutely, not for sale,” during a Zoom call on Wednesday attended by staff from all over the company.
While he reportedly didn’t address any specific rumors, a recent report from The Hollywood Reporter seems to be the likely target of his comments. Earlier this month, the outlet suggested that “top industry execs” were “convinced” that Warner Bros. was on the brink of merging with Comcast, owners of NBCUniversal and the Peacock streaming service (and, disclosure, an investor in Vox Media, The Verge’s parent company). One…
Do you know what gives me profound joy? When nearly every single hair product sitting in my shower and bathroom goes on sale. And, no, this isn’t a tease! In honor of National Hair Day on October 1, Dermstore is paying it forward by giving its customers up to 30% off (or triple points for Dermstore dollars—um, yes, please!) across its beloved haircare brands. The deal is short but sweet—spanning through Monday, October 3, and all you have to do is shop and use code HAIR at checkout.
As I’ve discussed, I like to do my hair dirty by bleaching the heck out of it every couple of months or so. In fact, I’ve been doing that for years, and somehow, very miraculously, my hair is healthier than ever. (Even celebrity hairstylists are shocked when they realize I don’t have extensions!) According to experts, my hair has no right being as healthy as it is. But, I have some tricks up my sleeves.
Not only do I have an amazing colorist, Cassondra Kaeding, who prioritizes my hair’s integrity above all else, but I stay on top of my diet and supplements, and I also try to keep heat styling, sun exposure, and other strand stressors to a minimum. (Air-drying is where it’s at!) Last but not least, I have a pretty epic rotation of products—I don’t know if a pickier haircare consumer exists—that I steadfastly rely on to prevent and repair any inevitable damage as best as possible. And, very excitingly, so many of the brands and products in question are a part of Dermstore’s sale.
Curious to see which brands and products I personally vouch for and are temporarily on deal? Keep scrolling!
