QB nursing back injury ahead of Thursday tilt vs. CIN
Tua Tagovailoa is not in concussion protocol, Mike McDaniel said. (Miami Herald – Daniel Oyefusi)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Tagovailoa looked groggy after his helmet clearly hit the ground right before the two-minute warning in the first half. Miami is calling it a back injury. It is unclear at the moment if he will go in Week 4 on such short notice, but it helps his prospects that he finished the Dolphins’ upset of the Bills. Tagovailoa should be viewed as a solid QB2 option for now. If Miami rules out Tua before Thursday, then Teddy Bridgewater would be a solid QB2 option in two-quarterback or superflex leeagues.
