The Dolphins fired HC Brian Flores. This one was not expected. Flores lasted 3 seasons in Miami, compiling a 24-25 record. He won 19 games over the past 2 years, though, and seemed to have the Fins heading in the right direction. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Miami is retaining GM Chris Grier. "A power struggle in Miami," Rapoport tweeted. We'll see where the Dolphins go at HC.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) is not listed on the final injury report. He was a full-go in practice on both Thursday and Friday. That finger should be close to 100% this week, making Tua a viable fantasy spot starter in a plus matchup vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. That makes him easier to trust in this weekend's plus matchup vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's on track to start vs. the Jets this weekend after playing well in relief of QB Jacoby Brissett Thursday night. But it'd be nice to see Tua get in a full practice or 2 this week.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores named QB Tua Tagovailoa his Week 11 starter on Monday. Tagovailoa replaced QB Jacoby Brissett in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game and didn't seem bothered by that small fracture in his right middle finger, completing 8 of 13 passes for 158 yards. We'll keep an eye on his practice participation level this week, but Tua gets a nice matchup on Sunday vs. the Jets' bottom-5 pass defense.

Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett injured his right knee in the 3rd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. That's forced QB Tua Tagovailoa onto the field, despite his left finger injury. We'll update Brissett's status when we know more.

Update: Brissett has been cleared to return, according to the NFL Network broadcast crew, but Tagovailoa is in the game.

Dolphins QB Jacoby Brissett will start tonight's game vs. the Ravens, NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe reports. QB Tua Tagovailoa will be active as the backup, as he continues to deal with that fracture to the middle finger of his throwing hand. Wolfe adds that the Dolphins "hope" Tagovailoa will be back for next week's game vs. the Jets. Brissett is a lower-end QB2 in Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens. He'll be a game-time decision. "Plan is to make a decision on where Tua’s grip, discomfort and ability to make every throw is after pregame workout," NFL Network's Cameron Wolfe tweeted. QB Jacoby Brissett will start if Tua can't. Both guys are only in play in 2-QB fantasy leagues.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores labeled QB Tua Tagovailoa (finger) a game-time decision for Thursday night's meeting with the Ravens. Dealing with a small fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand, Tagovailoa reportedly couldn't throw hard enough in pregame warmups this past weekend to play vs. the Texans. He'd obviously be a risky fantasy play if he starts Thursday night's game.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is dealing with a small fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He's active but only as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup vs. the Texans today. While this isn't a long-term injury, per Schefter, Tagovailoa's availability for this Thursday night's game vs. the Ravens is "in question." We'll keep an eye on him this coming week.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs, finger) will not start today's game vs. the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tua reportedly didn't feel good enough during pre-game warmups to start, but he will be active as QB Jacoby Brissett's backup. It's a missed opportunity in an excellent matchup. Brissett was decent in 3 starts earlier this season, averaging 230 yards and 1.3 TDs on a 67% completion rate but just 5.8 yards per attempt. He's only in play in 2-QB and Superflex leagues and is a slight downgrade for Miami's offense.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (left finger) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. HC Brian Flores said Friday that he’s “optimistic” Tua will play. But any injury to a finger on a QB’s throwing hand is a concern.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is dealing with a left (throwing) finger injury after banging it on a helmet in last week's loss to the Bills, HC Brian Flores said Friday. Tua is "sore and swollen" and has "some discomfort," Flores said, adding that he's "optimistic" Tagovailoa will be able to play vs. the Texans on Sunday. He's gotten in 2 limited practices so far this week. We'll see what Tagovailoa does on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson won't be traded before today's deadline, according to multiple sources. Miami was seemingly the only team really in the mix, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross didn't feel comfortable making the trade. So Watson will remain a healthy scratch for the Texans for the rest of the season. And QB Tua Tagovailoa will finish out this year as Miami's starter.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. It’s Tua’s 1st action since getting knocked out early in Week 2. Jacksonville ranks 24th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs, but Tagovailoa is missing WRs Will Fuller, DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) has been activated from IR and remains on track to start Sunday morning's game vs. the Jaguars in London, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's a plus matchup -- but Tagovailoa will be without WRs Will Fuller (finger) and DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder).

Dolphins HC Brian Flores confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is on track to start Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars, barring a setback between now and then. We wouldn't trust Tagovailoa in starting lineups outside of 2-QB leagues, but he should be an upgrade over QB Jacoby Brissett for Miami's offense.
