Tua Tagovailoa will not play in Sunday’s wild-card playoff matchup between Miami and Buffalo.
The third-year quarterback has been ruled “out” as Dolphins’ head coach Mike McDaniel told reporters Wednesday the team is preparing rookie Skylar Thompson to start against the Bills. Doctors have not cleared Tagovailoa to return from suffering a concussion. Miami made the playoffs at 9-8, but Tagovailoa was a big reason behind its success. He has dealt with injuries, primarily concussions, but he’s totaled 3,548 passing yards and 25 passing touchdowns. Tagovailoa recorded four 300-yard passing performances this season. ESPN reported the news on him being ruled out, but Alabama fans want him to get healthy.
