Tua Tagovailoa to be Miami Dolphins quarterback for rest of season, coach Brian Flores says – .


Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has a small fractured middle finger on his left hand (pitcher) and won’t start against the Houston Texans on Sunday, league sources told ESPN.
Jacoby Brissett is expected to be the Dolphins’ starting quarterback on Sunday, according to a source, with Tagovailoa serving as a replacement in Miami.

Tagovailoa has been limited in his throws all week and has progressed, but his finger hasn’t healed enough that he can start against Houston.

Tagovailoa will likely only play in an emergency on Sunday, sources say, but is expected to dress as a backup as the Dolphins are shorthanded in that position, after quarterback Reid Sinnett was recently claimed on waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tagovailoa said he wasn’t sure exactly when he was injured in last week’s loss to the Buffalo Bills, but he suspects it was in the second quarter. He finished the game last week without missing a snap, but has been limited to training every day this week.

The injury shouldn’t stop Tagovailoa from coming out in the long run, sources say. But Miami has a quick turnaround in Week 10 with a game on Thursday night, and Tagovailoa’s status for that game against the Baltimore Ravens is also in question.
