Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa left Sunday’s 35-0 loss to the Bills with a rib injury and there was no word from the team about how long he might be out after the game.

The team’s radio broadcast said during the game that X-rays on Tagovailoa were negative, but head coach Brian Flores offered no specifics when discussing the quarterback’s condition at his postgame press conference.

Flores said that he did not know the severity of the injury, which occurred on a hit by Bills edge rusher A.J. Epenesa on Miami’s second possession of the game. Flores said that there would be more tests on Sunday night and Monday before any determination is made.

Jacoby Brissett replaced Tagovailoa and had little success against a Bills defense that picked him off once and sacked him four times during the blowout win. The Dolphins will face the Raiders on the road next weekend.

  1. It’s time to get Watson, the GM has now blown five number 1 picks in the last two drafts.
    There is no point to having number 1 draft picks when you cannot hit on even 20% of them.

    Miami took Tua over Herbert. This comment is not a misprint

    … and Herbert would have been on IR with this O-Line. Tua is not the problem and neither was Tannehill (obviously). The Dolphins can’t build a line for over 20 years!

    And the Bills whupped them 35-0”

    I see all the wagon hopper bills fans are coming back out…haven’t heard much from from you in the last decade.

  4. Football is all about blocking and tackling. The Dolphins have not been able to block for many many years!

  5. I’m really not sure who would look at the film of Herbert who is big, athletic, fast, with a strong Dan Marino type arm and not choose him in the draft. Tua seems small, with an injury prone body. The Dolphins really need to get an offensive line that can block and pick up the mixture of rushes that all teams will be using. Miami needs to make a trade to improve that offensive line and find the right personnel. Right now there is no offense due to the quarterback not having enough time. If Miami spends all their draft capital to bring in Watson, he will also be on the run with that offensive line!

  6. If the OL continues to play like this, I don’t care who the QB is that person wouldn’t have a chance.
    If Grier and Flores aren’t on the hot seat soon then it will be more of the same thing. 2 OCs?? Who does that??? Draft OL to play a certain position and instead you have them playing different positions??? What could possibly go wrong with that.

  7. Whoever replaces him is going to take hit after hit with that O-line. I feel for Tua. It’s not all his fault.

  8. What a disastrous mistake in drafting Tua over Herbert. Either trade a first round pick to the Saints for Taysum Hill or trade the sun and the moon for Rodgers or Watson. Keep your picks and sign former MVP Cam Newton! Cam could take this team to the big game!

    Huh?

  10. Great game by Buffalo in most phases of their game. Solid performance by Miami defense especially their secondary. They kept giving the ball back to the offense but in Miami the offense doesn’t have any idea what to do. 2 offensive coordinators means you don’t have one. 20 years of going after receivers,running backs,and tight ends when you can’t block at the line! Hey Miami here is a hint!!! Your receivers,running backs and tight ends will stay if your line can play. Start with the damn line! Every year it’s the same thing,bring in cast offs and reach for the wrong guy in the draft to play o-line. What good is Waddle when your QB is on the ground!
