Tua Tagovailoa benched in Week 11
Tua Tagovailoa was benched by coach Brian Flores early in the fourth quarter of Miami’s 20-13 loss at Denver on Sunday. “Tua wasn’t injured,” Flores said after the game. “We just felt it was the best move at that point in the game. Will Flores start Ryan Fitzpatrick against the Jets next Sunday in New Jersey?
“No changes,” Flores said. “It’s very clear this is Tua’s team,” Fitzpatrick said. “Tua is going to continue to get better and grow.” (Palm Beach Post)
