Tua Tagovailoa was initially labeled as “day to day” by Dolphins coach Brian Flores a day after the Dolphins’ quarterback exited his team’s 35-0 loss to the Bills with a rib injury, but the news on Wednesday is much worse. Tagovailoa was carted off the field after getting hit by Bills defensive end AJ Epenesa during Miami’s second offensive drive. Head coach Brian Flores said Wednesday that the team received the results of additional tests and the former first-round pick suffered fractured ribs — then ruled him out for the Dolphins’ battle in Week 3 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
That will insert Jacoby Brissett as starting quarterback.
