Tua Tagovailoa Will Play Against Joe Burrow, Bengals


Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa officially will start in this week’s Thursday Night Football game vs. the Bengals, per ESPN’s Field Yates.

Tagovailoa will face his fellow 2020 NFL draft class member Joe Burrow in Cincinnati.

The Dolphins have a plan in place in case Tagovailoa is not able to finish the game on Thursday night. They activated rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson, and he will ack as the third-string behind Teddy Bridgewater, per Pro Football Focus’s Ari Meirov.

 7th-round rookie QB Skylar Thompson active for tonight’s game, so there is some insurance behind Teddy Bridgewater in case something pops up with Tua.

The Miami star was questionable on Wednesday as he continued to recover from a back injury he suffered on Sunday vs. the Bills.
