The Dolphins have had no injury luck at quarterback. Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater have had concussions that have kept them out this season. Now, rookie Skylar Thompson, who was making his first start, is hurt.

It is the fourth consecutive game the Dolphins have lost their starting quarterback.

Thompson injured his thumb on a third-and-eight throw with 14:02 remaining in the second quarter. The Dolphins report he is questionable to return.

Thompson’s hand hit the helmet of Patrick Jones on his follow through that resulted in an incompletion.

He went to the training room for medical evaluation after the play, holding his bloody thumb in a towel.

Bridgewater, who was cleared from concussion protocol Saturday, now is playing. Bridgewater is the only other quarterback dressed today, with Tagovailoa inactive and not returning to the lineup until next week.

Thompson completed 7 of 13 for 89 yards.

  1. Remember when coach was openly asking the universe for adversity…

    Our QB’s can’t be tackled. The next 3 drafts better be all about offensive line with this group.

    Go Dolphins.

  2. Dolphins have had the starting quarterback injured in 4 consecutive games.
    Has to be an NFL record.

  3. Looks like the league has it in for the Phins, 6 penalties in 6 plays .Vikings only points come after a few flags .

  4. Oh boy – looks like the Fins are cursed at QB!
    Guess that’s what happens when you insist on ignoring your O-Line needs!

  5. The Dolphins haven’t had a serviceable O-line for almost a decade, no surprise to see their QBs dropping like flies!

  6. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a string of QB injuries and penalties. I know Miami finished with a bunch of yards to end the game, but they were moving the ball all over. Just stupid stuff. McDaniel needs to call plays that won’t risk his QBs so much…

    wow they have totally been ignoring the OL LOL

  8. Remember Sean Payton said he expected Bridgewater to take over for Tua and not because of injury!
    He was wrong and wrong!
