Dolphins QB Clears Concussion Protocol; Will Return in Week 7

He's been cleared from concussion protocols. 

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is expected to return in Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Skylar Thompson will start Sunday, with Tua inactive and Teddy Bridgewater backing him up.

Returning in Week 7 isn't exactly a big surprise for Tua after he practiced in full all week. He met with specialists in addition to the Dolphins' staff before he was cleared. Obviously, Tua suffered a very scary and serious injury, so it's good to see him back and healthy for Week 7.

His return comes at a good time for the Dolphins, who have a Sunday night matchup with the Steelers in Week 7. Tua has thrown for 1,035 passing yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions in four games so far this season.
