Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) is not ready for football activities yet. “I’m not really thinking about his timeline, as I’ve said before,” McDaniel said. “We’re just trying to get him as healthy as possible. We’re pretty much in a 12 to 24-hour reoccurring evaluation process. He’s doing well.” Tagovailoa seems like a long shot for Week 6 and might be out beyond that.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson popped off for 17 carries, 120 yards and 1 score in Week 5. Tevin Coleman mixed in for 8 carries, with 5 of them and a garbage time TD coming deep in the 4th. Coleman did catch a 1st quarter TD, however, while he out-targeted Wilson 3-2. Elijah Mitchell (knee) remains at least a couple of weeks away from returning to action. So Wilson — who’s hit 74+ yards in 4 straight — will remain a viable RB2 in the short-term. Next up is a road matchup with Atlanta.

Miami WRs lost their starting QB for the 2nd straight game Sunday, when Teddy Bridgewater left after his 1st snap with a concussion and an elbow injury. Tyreek Hill still managed to catch all 7 of his targets for the game, though he gained only 47 yards. Jaylen Waddle caught all 3 of his targets for 23 yards. We'll see What the QB situation is for Week 6 against Minnesota.

After nudging ahead of Chase Edmonds in recent weeks, Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert took over in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He played 46 snaps vs. 13 for Myles Gaskin and 10 for Chase Edmonds. That included running 20 pass routes to 14 combined for Gaskin and Edmonds. Mostert claimed 18 of 23 RB carries for the game, delivering 113 yards and a TD. TE Durham Smythe ran for the team's only other TD. Edmonds logged just 1 carry for 1 yard and caught neither of his 2 targets. Gaskin ran 4 games for 9 yards and ranked 2nd on the team with 5 targets. He caught 3 of those for 24 yards. Edmonds looks cuttable in many fantasy football leagues at this point.

A source tells Pro Football Talk that Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill's foot injury "is not believed to be serious." That's obviously good news and seemingly rules out a long-term absence, but it doesn't necessarily mean that Hill won't miss time. We should learn more on Monday.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill was wearing a walking boot on his left foot after Sunday's loss to the Jets, per ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques. HC Mike McDaniel reportedly said that Hill was stepped on late in the game. We'll pass along further updates as we get them.

Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater headed back to the locker room in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets with an undisclosed injury. That leaves Miami with 7th-round rookie QB Skylar Thompson. We'll update Bridgewater's status when we know more.

Update: Bridgewater is questionable to return with elbow and head injuries, the team announced.

Update: Per the CBS broadcast, Bridgewater passed concussion tests but has been ruled out "out in abundance of caution."

Dolphins CB Xavier Howard (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Jets. Already down starting CB Byron Jones for the 5th straight game, Miami's secondary presents an upside matchup for the talented Jets wideouts.

11:34am EDT 10/9/22

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He played his usual allotment of snaps with this injury last week, so we’re not expecting it to be a big factor today.

11:34am EDT 10/9/22

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He was added to the injury report on Thursday but was able to get in a limited practice on Friday. There’s some additional risk here, but we wouldn’t bench Hill in this plus matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dolphins WRs Tyreek Hill (quad) and Jaylen Waddle (groin) are expected to play vs. the Jets today. Both guys carry elevated risk after limited weeks of practice, but you'd need to be stacked at WR to consider benching either guy. Both boast big upside in this plus matchup.

As expected, Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (concussion, back, ankle) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. He might be out for a while. QB Teddy Bridgewater draws the start this weekend and has some spot-start appeal in the plus matchup, as long as WRs Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle play.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) is questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Waddle played through this issue last week, registering his usual snap rate but catching just 2 balls for 39 yards. The floor here is lower than usual, but Waddle still has big upside in a plus matchup vs. the Jets.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. After being added to the injury report on Thursday, he got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike McDaniel said Friday that he’s “very hopeful” Hill will be able to play. We’ll get Miami’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill was added to Thursday's injury report with a quad and limited in practice. We don't have any other details right now. We'll see what Hill does in Friday's practice and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's on track to play vs. the Jets this weekend, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full practice tomorrow.

Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. He played through this issue last Thursday night, but it's at least slightly concerning that he's not practicing coming off the long week. We'll see if Waddle gets back on the field tomorrow.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel told reporters Monday that QB Tua Tagovailoa will miss the Week 5 game against the Jets and that he has no specific return timeline yet. The QB, of course, is in the league concussion protocol after leaving Thursday night's game on a stretcher. We'll watch for more on his situation. Teddy Bridgewater takes over the high-upside passing game in the meantime.

Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel confirmed after Thursday night's loss to the Bengals that QB Tua Tagovailoa is in the concussion protocol. We'll see if he has any other injuries beyond that. Miami's next game is in 10 days vs. the Jets. QB Teddy Bridgewater played well in relief of Tagovailoa in Cincinnati, completing 14 of 23 passes for 193 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in a little over 1 half of action.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa exited in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Bengals after being slammed to the turf by Bengals DL Josh Tupou. He was taken off the field by a stretcher. We'll update Tua's status when we know more. QB Teddy Bridgewater will take over for Miami.

Update: Tagovailoa has been ruled out with head and neck injuries and is being transported to a hospital.

Update: According to the Amazon Prime broadcast crew, Tagovailoa is expected to be discharged from the hospital tonight and travel back to Miami with the team.
