Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is active for Thursday Night Football. He was questionable with back and ankle injuries.

However, seventh-round rookie Skylar Thompson is active for the first time this season as insurance as the third quarterback. That’s a sign the Dolphins have some uncertainty about whether Tagovailoa will make it through the game.

Teddy Bridgewater is the backup to Tagovailoa.

Receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin), cornerback Xavien Howard (groin/glute) and left tackle Terron Armstead (toe) also are active tonight.

Receiver Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs/toe) is among the team’s inactives.

The Dolphins’ other inactives are tight end Cethan Carter (concussion), tight end Hunter Long (ankle), running back Myles Gaskin, receiver Erik Ezukanma and cornerback Noah Igbinoghene.

Defensive tackle Raekwon Davis (knee) and safety Brandon Jones (chest) are dressed.

The Bengals’ inactives are running back Trayveon Williams, offensive tackle D’Ante Smith, offensive guard Jackson Carman and tight end Drew Sample (knee).

Right tackle La'el Collins (back) and linebacker Germaine Pratt (knee) are dressed. Both were questionable.

  1. The Bengal’s only win so far this season is the Jets with a backup QB. I cannot see how they are favored tonight.

  2. Skylar Thompson should be the backup and if he gets his chance, he will create an air show like you the league has not seen in a long time with those WR’S.

  3. I wasn’t impressed with Teddy last weekend against the Bills. He seemed like he was pouting when he went out there. Flat footed. No urgency. Almost seemed like he thought he was above the situation. Of any backup QB in the league he should know to stay ready because he’s been a part of injuries. I guess there’s a reason he’s been on 3 different teams in 3 years. It seems like he’s bitter because he thought he was going to take the starting job when in reality Tua is twice the QB he is. I don’t think he’ll be in Miami for more than a season.

  4. I like the white Bengal uniforms. I think they would be better with no orange on them at all, however.

  5. Somebody high up needs to lose their job for letting him back on the field. He was absolutely concussed last week, it was covered up, and the young man is now paying for it by being carted off with what is almost certainly his second concussion in less than 5 days. Prayers to him for a fast and full recovery.
