Out for Week 17
If Dolphins make the playoffs, Ryan Fitzpatrick’s availability could be in jeopardy for WC game. Minimum 10 days away from team means earliest Fitz could return would be Sunday Jan. 10 only if he travels separately from team. 3 playoff games on Saturday, 3 on Sunday this year.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Fitzpatrick’s absence is only significant for Week 17 due to the fact he made an appearance in Week 16 against the Raiders with Tua Tagovailoa no worse for the wear. For better or worse, the Dolphins will be stuck with Tua in a must-win game against the Bills.
