After promising results on Monday, the Miami Dolphins have now gathered new information on quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and it’s not what it wanted to hear.

On Monday, head coach Brian Flores announced to the media that after further testing the team has found that Tagovailoa has in fact suffered fractured ribs. He has now been downgraded to OUT for next Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Tagovailoa was injured in last Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills when he was sacked from behind. He immediately left the field and was later carted to the locker room and did not return to the game.

Backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who replaced Tagovailoa against the Bills, will now start against the Raiders.
