Update on Miami Dolphins Quarterback Tagovailoa

The Miami Dolphins are unlikely to see their quarterback Tua Tagovailoa again this regular season, but they apparently haven't given up on seeing him again in the postseason. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports the young passer could be back for the Wildcard round if all goes well over the next two weeks. Tagovailoa was placed in concussion protocol following the Dolphins' Week 16 26-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He completed the game but struggled in the second half, throwing three interceptions while failing to lead a single scoring drive. Glazer also reported Tagovailoa was unable to recall plays from the fourth quarter. He is inactive for today's Week 17 matchup against the New England Patriots and is not expected to play in Week 18 against the New York Jets.

Week 16's head injury is at least the second concussion of Tagovailoa's season following a frightening Week 4 collision in a 27-15 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was stretchered off the field after being whipped to the ground on a relatively routine sack.

For Tagovailoa to contribute in the postseason, the Dolphins first need to make the playoffs. They currently hold the third Wildcard spot in the AFC, but losses to the New England Patriots and New York Jets over the final two weeks of the season could rapidly change their fortunes.
