Dolphins quarterback Jacoby Brissett injured his knee on the team’s first series of the second half.

Justin Houston beat left tackle Liam Eichenberg and sacked Brissett, whose right leg folded awkwardly underneath him. Brissett lost the ball, immediately grabbed his right knee and yelled in pain. Eichenberg recovered the fumble.

Brissett walked off under his own power and headed into the medical tent. Kristina Pink of Fox reported that the team’s medical staff cleared Brissett to return, but the Dolphins list him as questionable.

Tua Tagovailoa, who was only supposed to back up Brissett tonight, replaced Brissett after head coach Brian Flores stopped Brissett from entering the game in favor of Tagovailoa.

Brissett started for Tagovailoa for the fifth time this season and the second consecutive week as the former first-round draft choice recovers from a fracture middle finger on his throwing (left) hand.

Brissett is 11-of-23 for 156 yards.

  1. Has anybody on the Dolphins coaching staff NOTICED Dan is in the house? Maybe someone should go up to the suite and ask him to play!

  2. Where has this Dolphins defense been? This is what we did last year. Dial up pressure and put the onus on these corners to play good defense. If we had any semblance of an offense we should have at least 17pts on the board. Bringing in an injured Tua is a desperation move by a desperate team to generate some semblance of an offense. Trying a trick play with Albert Wilson was cute. Trying to get tricky when you can’t even execute a vanilla offense. Smh

  3. What a snoozefest.

    Is the Pro Football media is getting off the Ravens bandwagon yet? The AFC is awash in mediocrity this season.

  4. Once again the officals try to rig the game with the 2 BS roughing the passer calls on Miami. Once and for all the officiating needs to be called on the carpet and people need to be fired in public.
    There needs to be a television show every week in prime time that points out the officals BS and holds them accountable close up. The ratings would be through the frigging roof.

  5. I really feel sorry for the Dolphins and Brian Flores who is a very good defensive coach and capable head coach. Someone chose that offensive line and the person should be fired. The Miami quarterbacks will continue to get injured with the lack of NFL ability on the offensive line. The offense can not sustain drives due to the Miami offensive line. The offensive coordinators need to be returned to their position coach jobs or fired after the season.

    Until it mattered the most in the last week of the season and playoff on the line. Buffalo hung 50+ points (And it could have been 60+) on them.
