Dolphins Head Coach Says QB Not Ready To Return Yet

Tua Tagovailoa and the Miami Dolphins handling of his concussion issue has been the biggest story in the league over the past several weeks, and after he was brutally hit during the Cincinnati Bengals matchup on Thursday Night Football, we've not heard much of an update on his situation. At this point though, it's clear from the way everyone in Miami is talking about the situation that his health is first and foremost right now, and on that point, there's a good chance that QB1 misses Week 6.

Never say never, as it's a long way until the Dolphins match up with the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, but at this point, Head Coach Mike McDaniel isn't optimistic that Tagovailoa is ready to return to any type of football action. Two concussions in just four days is hazardous for anyone, but having to go back out on to that field, with the possibility of another could be very dangerous, so it appears Miami will wait until he is more than 100% ready to go.

In the meantime, they'll have to stick with Teddy Bridgewater, who is dealing with injury issues of his own from the Week 5 loss, and rookie Skylar Thompson, who stepped in and tried his heart out in the Dolphins blowout loss to the division rival New York Jets.
