MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins are going to be without starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for at least a few more weeks.
First reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Miami placed the second year QB on Injured Reserve due to his rib injury.
In a corresponding move, the Dolphins promoted quarterback Reid Sinnett to the active roster from the practice squad.
That means Tagovailoa will be out for another three weeks, at minimum.
Miami plays in Las Vegas against the Raiders this Sunday before hosting the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 3 and traveling to face the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 10.
Jacoby Brissett will take over as the Dolphins starting quarterback while Tagovailoa is out.
The next game Tua will be eligible to play is on Oct. 17 when Miami faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.
Tagovailoa was injured during the first quarter last week’s 35-0 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
