Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is expected to return for the team’s Oct. 17 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Tagovailoa fractured his ribs Sept. 19 against the Buffalo Bills and has since been placed on injured reserve. Veteran signal-caller Jacoby Brissett will continue to start for Miami in his absence.
Tagovailoa is 1-1 this season, completing 54.8% of his passes for 215 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He has also run for a score.
Brissett started last weekend’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. He completed 65.3% of his passes for 215 yards and ran for a touchdown.
The veteran started 32 games in the NFL before last weekend, including 30 for the Indianapolis Colts in 2017 and 2019. The 28-year-old was 12-20 in those games, completing 59.6% of his passes for 6,628 yards and 31 touchdowns against 14 interceptions.
The Dolphins are 1-2 this season and host the 0-3 Indianapolis Colts this weekend.
