Tagovailoa broke his ribs in a Week 2 loss against the Buffalo Bills and the initial hope was he’d be back in time for Week 6 and Tuesday’s news is the first step toward that happening. He was placed on injured reserve Sept. 25.
In Tagovailoa’s place, Jacoby Brissett has filled in for the 1-4 Dolphins.
The Dolphins have designated QB Tua Tagovailoa for return from IR. He’s eligible to play this Sunday against the Jaguars.
