QB Tua Tagovailoa is expected to return as the Dolphins' starter next season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tagovailoa suffered 3 -- ahem, 2 -- concussions this season, ultimately missing 4 games and most of another. His play tailed off late in the season, but he finished with a 65% completion rate and big 8.9 yards per attempt. "The Dolphins have been pleased with Tagovailoa's development this season under first-year coach Mike McDaniel," per Schefter, and "medical professionals also are confident that Tagovailoa should be able to resume his NFL career next season, if not sooner."

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Wednesday that QB Tua Tagovailoa is out for Sunday's playoff opener against the Bills. Doctors have yet to clear the QB for football activity coming off his latest concussion. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Miami is preparing as though Skylar Thompson will start. That doesn't rule out the possibility of Teddy Bridgewater returning from the finger injury on his throwing hand, but you should prepare as though the rookie will line up behind center. This obviously downgrades Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle for all fantasy football formats.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel wouldn't say Monday where QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol but did say that he's seen Tagovailoa "sweating" in workouts. That suggests that Tua is at least in Stage 2 of the 5-stage protocol, giving him a chance to be cleared for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. McDaniel said Monday that he'll have game plans for all 3 potential starting QBs, with both Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater (finger) iffy. We'll get Miami's first practice report of the week on Wednesday.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel conceded Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not in the team's Week 18 plans. QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his right pinkie in the loss to the Patriots, which seemingly makes QB Skylar Thompson the favorite to start Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater is believed to have a broken finger on his right hand, according to Pro Football Talk. PFT's Mike Florio said on the Sunday Night Football pregame show that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not expected to be cleared for Week 18. That means it'll likely be Skylar Thompson under center in next Sunday's must-win game vs. the Jets.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) didn't practice all week and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. No surprise there considering the multiple concussions Tagovailoa has sustained this year. QB Teddy Bridgewater will make his first start of the season in New England. He's averaged a big 8.7 yards on 60 attempts in spot duty and should at least be able to support WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle as fantasy starters.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel announced Wednesday that QB Teddy Bridgewater will start Sunday against the Patriots. He also confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa suffered a concussion in last week's loss to the Packers. It's the 3rd concussion of the season for Tagovailoa, which makes it fair to wonder whether the starter will make it back for Week 18. We'll see about everything beyond this week. Bridgewater got 2 other games of prominent duty this year, throwing 3 TDs and 3 INTs in portions of games against the Bengals and Vikings. He sits in QB2 range in our Week 17 fantasy football rankings.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol. Per HC Mike McDaniel, “nobody recognized anything with regard to” a hit during Sunday’s game. Tua simply met with doctors and reported symptoms. Unfortunately, we might be looking at a Teddy Bridgewater start in Week 17 at New England.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa wound up with 310 yards and a TD in Sunday's loss to the Packers, but his performance proved much worse than that. Nearly half of those yards came on 2 completions: an 84-yard TD to WR Jaylen Waddle and 52-yarder to Tyreek Hill. Tagovailoa went just 16 for 25 overall and tossed 3 INTs -- the last of which sealing the defeat on Miami's final possession. The 3rd-year QB's performance has dipped over the current 4-game losing streak. He entered Sunday's game off just 49.5% completions over his previous 3. Tagovailoa will make for a risk-reward option at New England in Week 17. He currently sits just inside the top 12 of our Week 17 QB rankings but is not a lock to stay there.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa threw for 234 yards and 2 TDs in Saturday night's loss at Buffalo. He took just 2 sacks but completed a mere 17 of 30 passes (56.7%). Tagovailoa hit WR Tyreek Hill from 20 yards out and WR Jaylen Waddle for a 67-yard score. Miami gets the Packers at home in Week 16.

The forecast for tonight's Dolphins-Bills game calls for temperatures in the mid-20s and potentially heavy snow. If there's good news, it's that winds are expected to be manageable: 5-10 mph sustained with gusts of 10-15 mph. These are still less-than-ideal conditions for the passing and kicking games, though. We've made some adjustments to our projections for this game. Check out the updated rankings.
