Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is questionable to return to Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills after suffering a rib injury in the first quarter.
Miami elected to go for it on fourth-and-2 from near midfield, and Tagovailoa was hit by Buffalo’s A.J. Epenesa. Tagovailoa grimaced and grabbed his left side after getting up, then walked a few steps and went back to the ground.
Tua Tagovailoa was helped off of the field and carted to the Dolphins locker room to receive medical attention following a big hit.

Tagovailoa was tended to there for a few moments before making it to the bench area, then was taken by cart to the Miami locker room for further evaluation.
He was sacked twice on Miami’s first series, then got hurt on the final play of the Dolphins’ second series. Backup Jacoby Brissett would come into the game for the Dolphins taking the field for the first time since signing a one-year deal in the off-season.
