Dolphins Announce Starting QB Is Out For Week 5

The Miami Dolphins were, and still are at the heart of NFL controversy this past week, as they played Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa just four days after the entire world could see that he suffered a concussion against the Buffalo Bills. Then, on Thursday night, the young QB suffered another hit which knocked him out of the game, and it has many raising serious questions about how the injury was handled.

Now, the Dolphins seem to be taking it seriously, as head coach Mike McDaniel today announced that Tagovailoa will be out in Week 5, as the team now officially turns to Teddy Bridgewater as the team look to bounce back from their first loss of the season by battling the division rival New York Jets.

The Dolphins have built one of the most explosive offence's in the NFL, with Tua and his weapons Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but in Week 5, the weapons on the outside will need to be just as good if they're to head to 4-1 and potentially keep pace with the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East. There's been no official timetable on Tua's return yet, but Miami are finally taking it seriously, which is a step in the right direction, but it's not a good sign for the next few weeks, as they team could take a serious fall.
