With the Dolphins and Bengals playing on Thursday night this week, Miami issued its first injury report of the week on Monday afternoon.

It is lengthy.

Because the Dolphins did not practice on Monday, the injury report is an estimate. Nevertheless, quarterback Tua Tagovailoa would not have practiced with his back and ankle injuries.

Head coach Mike McDaniel said earlier on Monday that Tagovailoa was sore. And that he effectively wasn’t sure how Tagovialoa would respond over teh course of the week and if the quarterback would be available on Thursday.

“It’s my first time on a Thursday night game with Tua, so I don’t assume anything,” McDaniel said in his Monday press conference. “But it wasn’t out of the extreme norm of bumps and bruises after a game. But as far as me being able to access my crystal ball, it’s broke right now. That’s one of the reasons why you have a roster of capable people and that’s why we brought Teddy [Bridgewater] here and drafted Skylar [Thompson] — you have to be ready for these types of adjustments. And just like Teddy was ready in the game, we’ll be ready for whatever we have to deal with moving forward.”

Offensive tackle Terron Armstead (toe), cornerback Xavien Howard (groin/glute), tight end Cethan Carter (concussiopn), offensive lineman Rob Hunt (shin), safety Brandon Jones (chest), tight end Hunter Long (ankle), and receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) also would not have practiced.

Edge rusher Melvin Ingram also would not have practiced due to rest.

Defensive tackle Raekwon Davis (knee), safety Jevon Holland (neck), cornerback Kader Kohou (ankle), offensive tackle Greg Little (finger), defensive lineman Zach Sieler (hand) and receiver Cedrick Wilson (ribs/toe_ would have been limited.

  1. This from the organization which Tampered with Brady and drove for the low draft pick. No need to play by the rules when there are no consequences.

  2. Such hate coming from Bills Mafia after the final whistle from the game Sunday. No excuses, they lost the game. On to the next game just like Miami is on to

  3. So glad he recovered so well from his impersonation of a cow suffering from mad cow disease. Absolute miracle. I hear Dr. Jerruh will be calling the Dolphins to share their secret so that Dakota can be brought back next week.

  4. But, Tua would have practiced with a concussion, and there is NO doubt, Tua was concussed on Sunday. It doesn’t matter what the Dolphons were or are saying, we all saw it.

  5. Skylar Thompson is a much better option than Bridgewater. Skylar could use the NFL experience too. I’d rather go 3-1 with Skylar than 3-1 with Bridgewater. And the way Skylar played in preseason, who knows, maybe he could probably pull off a win. If Tua can’t go…. START SKYLAR THOMPSON!

  6. Tua wont know his name by the end of the season if he keeps getting hit like that. That’s his problem, he get serious injuries and it kicks his momentum.

  7. They are just picking something that hurts and hyping it as the reason he stood up, staggered and wobbled, then as he tried to jog forward he stumbled and lost his balance. But that’s a concussion.

  8. Remember player safety is key in the NFL, really, that’s why they are lining up to play on Thursday night. No, no,no, it’s not for the tv money, we’d never sacrifice player safety for money.
