UPDATE (Jan. 1): According to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com and David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, coach Mike McDaniel confirmed Friday that Tagovailoa (concussion) will miss Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
UPDATE: With Tagovailoa in the NFL’s concussion protocol for the second time this season, the Dolphins are preparing Teddy Bridgewater to start against the Patriots on Sunday, according to ESPN’s Marcel Louis-Jacques.
Tagovailoa is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis, according to coach Mike McDaniel, who added that there is no timetable for the quarterback’s return to game action.
With that in mind, we’d expect Tagovailoa – who missed two games earlier this season due to a concussion – to be officially ruled out ahead of Week 17, with his status beyond this weekend unknown.
Coach Mike McDaniel confirmed Wednesday that Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Packers, according to Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins’ official website.
Due to symptoms reported after Sunday’s loss, Tagovailoa was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol on Monday.
McDaniel told Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post that the Dolphins will go into Sunday’s divisional road game against the Patriots expecting Teddy Bridgewater to start. According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, McDaniel declined to say whether the team will approach Tagovailoa’s recovery with extra caution, given that this is his third time being evaluated for a concussion due to an in-game hit this season.
Tagovailoa missed two games the last time he was placed in the five-step concussion protocol.
