Brian Flores: We’ll have to see how much Tua Tagovailoa can practice

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores didn’t have much of an update on quarterback Tua Tagovailoa‘s thumb at his Wednesday press conference.

Tagovailoa did not play against the Jets in Week 12 and Flores said he did not know how much Tagovailoa will be able to practice when the team starts on-field preparation for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

“I wish I had a crystal ball to tell you he’s going to practice fully, but we’ll have to get out there,” Flores said, via Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “He’s doing everything he can. We’ll evaluate it as we go.”

Ryan Fitzpatrick started in the Week 12 win, but Flores nipped any controversy in the bud by saying Tagovailoa remains the starter as long as he’s healthy. It may be a bit before the Dolphins know if that’s the case.

  1. If Miami really want Tua to progress quickly; they must sign KENNY STILLS! Stills and Parker on the field at the same time, is double trouble for all defenses!!!!!!!!!!! Please get it done Grier & Flores.

  2. Tua gets the Dolphins to the playoffs, Fitzy gets them to 8-8 at best.

    We need Tua to play ASAP!

    So, you say Fitz only wins one more game? That seems crazy. Defense is going to win the games down the stretch; if the D doesn’t play well in those final 4 games, it doesn’t matter who is at QB.

    Really need Grier and Co. to draft a top RB next year; without a running game, this offense is stagnant.

  4. Here is the Month of December. 4 tough games coming up.

    Must beat The Pats and Raiders to have a shot.

    We will all see how it plays out.

    I’ll have my fingers crossed. Hoping for at least a 2-2 outcome!
