Tagovailoa to IR, to Miss at Least Three Games

The Miami Dolphins have placed quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on IR due to fractured ribs. He will miss at least three weeks. 

Tagovailoa suffered the injury early in a Week 2 loss to Buffalo. He will miss, at a minimum, tomorrow afternoon’s game in Las Vegas against the Raiders, plus a Week 4 home game against the Colts and a Week 5 game against the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay. The earliest he could return would be a Week 6 game against the Jaguars in Jacksonville.

This makes the next few weeks something of a reunion tour for Jacoby Brissett. He started 30 games for the Colts from 2017 to 2019; before that, he spent one season in New England backing up current Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady.
