QB Teddy Bridgewater will be signing a 1-year deal with the Dolphins, according to multiple reports. He's expected to serve as QB Tua Tagovailoa's backup.
Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) is active for today's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. He'll back up QB Skylar Thompson. Bridgewater was only able to throw about 15 yards in practice this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. HC Mike McDaniel confirmed today that rookie QB Skylar Thompson will start and Bridgewater will serve as the backup. This was the expectation as of Wednesday, but now it's official. Though Thompson has been a respectable stand-in, he's far off the fantasy radar. The rookie has appeared in the majority of 3 games this season and has yet to surpass 200 yards passing with only 1 TD to his name. This also downgrades the value of any Dolphins' pass-catcher in this contest.
Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) practiced in a limited fashion again on Thursday. At this point, it's looking like rookie QB Skylar Thompson will be under center for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bills. Dolphins OC Frank Smith did say on Thursday that Bridgewater is "working his butt off" in rehabilitating the dislocated pinky finger, per team reporter Joe Schad. We'll see if that effort is enough for him to supplant Thompson as the starter this weekend. Stay tuned for updates tomorrow.
Dolphins QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee, right finger) logged limited participation at Wednesday's practice. We shared earlier that starting QB Tua Tagovailoa has already been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card contest vs. the Bills. It'll come down to rookie QB Skylar Thompson or Bridgewater under center this weekend. We'll continue to track this as the week unfolds. It's also worth noting Thompson (ankle) appears on the injury report with full practice participation.
