Tagovailoa has had to deal with back and ankle injuries stemming from Miami’s Week 3 win over the Bills, with QB later admitting that his back was the most serious issue. He has undergone limited training sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday in preparation for tonight’s game.
Tua was injured trying to sneak QB on Sunday, and he left the game the next time he played. Matt Milano shove him to the ground. QB hit his head and tripped onto the pitch before hitting the touchline, sending him into the concussion ritual. He went back and finished the game, and while the NFL’s follow-up investigation is ongoing, it appears the organization has followed proper protocols.
The 24-year-old has lived up to expectations in his third season in the NFL. In three weeks, Tagovailoa compiled 925 passes, eight touchdown passes and just two interceptions while leading Miami to a 3-0 start.
If Tua is forced to miss at any time, the Dolphins will be in a good position to temporarily replace his place in the lineup after refilling ink. Teddy Bridgewater this season. Saturday rookie Skylar Thompson are also on the active list and it looks like all three QBs will be active for tonight’s game.
