Dolphins Starting QB Questionable To Return With Thumb Injury

After a scintillating 3-0 start to the 2022 NFL season for the Miami Dolphins, they've struggled mightily as of late, due to injuries to both of their experienced QB's in Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater, which led to them starting Skylar Thompson in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. Unfortunately for the Dolphins, Thompson isn't immune to the injury bug either, as he went off to the locker room with a thumb injury that was suffered when his hand collided with the helmet of an opposing Vikings player.

Thankfully for Miami, Teddy Bridgewater successfully recovered from the injury suffered a week ago, and is serving as the backup today, so they will now be going with their No. 2 QB, rather than being in complete dire straits, and having to go further down the depth chart.

With a third place standing in the AFC East right now, this team needs to step up and take out the 4-1 Vikings if they are to keep pace with the Jets and Bills or improve their standing, and while Bridgewater may be the better QB at this point in time, it's tough to lose yet another QB, and it's unlikely that Thompson will return today.
