Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will miss the next two games while he is on injured reserve, but he is expected to be ready to return Oct. 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, a source told ESPN.
While Tagovailoa is out, Jacoby Brissett will continue to start for Miami, including Sunday against his former Indianapolis Colts team.
Tagovailoa fractured his ribs Sept. 19 at home against Buffalo, and when he did, it was considered a roughly three-week injury.
Dolphins fans have reacted to the news on Twitter. “Even though they lost, it was clear that Brissett is a better quarterback..”
One fan tweeted, “Tua is turning into the bust many people predicted he would be.” “Dolphins are unconcerned..”
“Dolphins are unconcerned..” It’s not a starter material, but it’s a good back-up to Brissett. Why are there so many overrated quarterbacks in the first round, even in the first or second? I can’t recall a No. 1 or No. 2 pick QB winning a Super Bowl in the last ten years, am I wrong?” another fan added.
“They’ll be front-runners for Watson,” one supporter predicted. It wouldn’t be surprising if trade rumors for Deshaun Watson heated up, especially if Tagovailoa is out longer than expected. Nokia News
