  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Set for MRI, initial scans negative

    Tagovailoa (concussion/neck) traveled back with teammates after Thursday's loss to the Bengals and is scheduled for an MRI on his neck Friday, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.

    Tagovailoa traveled back with the team while wearing a neck brace, but initial testing revealed that he hasn't suffered any broken bones. Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that that current indications about the quarterback are positive, while Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald confirms that Tagovailoa is now officially in the league's concussion protocol and will continue to be monitored closely. Teddy Bridgewater will be in line to start Week 5 versus the Jets if Tagovailoa isn't able to reach full medical clearance over the next 10 days, and there's no question that the 24-year-old's long-term health ought to be Miami's top concern.

  • Dolphins' Trent Sherfield: Productive as No. 3 receiver

    Sherfield secured four of six targets for 55 yards during Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

    Sherfield handled a significant role behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle with Cedrick Wilson (ribs) inactive Thursday, recording the third highest receiving total of his career. If Wilson gets back on the field Week 5 versus the Jets, though, Sherfield will stand to revert to a depth spot. When Sherfield does get opportunities on offense in Miami, though, his familiarity with coach Mike McDaniel's offense makes him worthy of fantasy consideration in leagues with deep starting requirements.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Good on three of four kicks

    Sanders converted three of four field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try during Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

    Sanders' only missed field-goal try came from 50-plus yards out and with significant wind, but it was good to see him receive increased opportunities. In Miami's previous two games, Sanders had been limited to just extra-point conversions. The Dolphins are looking ahead to a divisional matchup against the Jets in Week 5.

  • Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Receiving score in loss

    Edmonds rushed five times for six yards and brought in two of three targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night.

    Edmonds logged 10 fewer carries than backfield mate Raheem Mostert, but he was able to find the end zone for the third time in the last two games via a seven-yard touchdown reception with seven seconds remaining in the first half. Edmonds has generated just 85 yards on 28 carries over his first four games, but he does have a pair of rushing scores along with Thursday's receiving touchdown, his first of the season. Edmonds figures to remain in a complementary role, albeit one that includes a solid red-zone presence thus far, irrespective of whether it's Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) or Teddy Bridgewater under center for a Week 5 AFC East road showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Racks up 123 total yards in loss

    Mostert rushed 15 times for 69 yards and secured two of three targets for 12 yards in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night. He also returned two kickoffs for 42 yards.

    Mostert served as the clear lead back on the night, outpacing backfield mate Chase Edmonds by 10 carries while matching his two catches and three targets. The veteran's workload on the ground was a season high, which also led to a new 2022 high-water mark in rushing yardage. Mostert could have an elevated role once again in a Week 5 road showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday particularly if Teddy Bridgewater draws a start over Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck), considering head coach Mike McDaniel might run a bit more of a ground-based attack and Mostert could also play a key role as a safety-valve receiving option for the veteran backup.

  • Dolphins' Jaylen Waddle: Limited to two grabs Thursday

    Waddle secured two of five targets for 39 yards in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night.

    Waddle uncharacteristically checked in third in receptions, receiving yards and targets for the Dolphins on the night, with Teddy Bridgewater focusing more on Tyreek Hill and even Trent Sherfield after he entered the game for an injured Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) in the second quarter. Waddle had produced a stellar 19-342-3 line on 30 targets through his first three games, so there's reason to believe he'll bounce back with stronger numbers irrespective of who's under center during a Week 5 road battle against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Capable in emergency duty Thursday

    Bridgewater entered Thursday night's 27-15 loss to the Bengals for an injured Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) with 5:13 remaining in the second quarter and completed 14 of 23 passes for 193 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed once for 11 yards.

    Bridgewater turned in the type of performance he was essentially brought to Miami for, using his experience to hit the ground running and immediately complete a 16-yard pass to Trent Sherfield that set the Dolphins up for a 52-yard field-goal attempt, which ultimately was blocked. Bridgewater then helmed a nine-play, 75-yard scoring march on his first full possession, capping it off with a seven-yard touchdown toss to Chase Edmonds. Bridgewater subsequently led another 88-play drive that culminated in a field goal and had the offense deep in Bengals territory late down by only five before throwing an interception at the Cincinnati nine-yard line. Tagovailoa was feeling well enough after being evaluated at the hospital to travel home with the rest of the team per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, but it remains to be seen if Bridgewater will need to make a spot start in his stead in a Week 5 road matchup versus the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Tyreek Hill: Back over century mark in loss

    Hill secured 10 of 14 targets for 160 yards and rushed once for minus-1 yard in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night.

    Hill generated game-high reception, receiving yardage and target totals in a resurgent performance after producing just a 2-33 line on four targets in Week 3 against the Bills. However, the head and neck injuries that knocked Tua Tagovailoa out of Thursday's game naturally could have an impact on the overall outlook for the air attack, although Hill and backup Teddy Bridgewater displayed good chemistry during their time together on the field, most prominently on a 64-yard pass in the latter portion of the third quarter that helped set up a Jason Sanders go-ahead field goal. In coming days, Hill should get further clarity on which quarterback he'll work during the Dolphins' next game, which will be an AFC East road showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Set to travel back with team

    Tagovailoa (head/neck) will be released from the hospital Thursday night and travel back to Miami with his teammates, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Tagovailoa was transported to the hospital after sustaining head and neck injuries in Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals, but he feels good enough to leave the hospital and board the flight back to Miami. Coach Mike McDaniel said after the game that Tagovailoa has been placed in the concussion protocol, per Adam Beasley of Pro Football Network. Tagovailoa will need to clear the concussion protocol over the next 10 days to be eligible to play in Week 5 against the Jets. Teddy Bridgewater replaced Tagovailoa in the second quarter and proceeded to throw for 193 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Bridgewater will start in Week 5 if Tagovailoa isn't ready to return.

  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Questionable to return Thursday

    Howard suffered a groin injury and is questionable to return to Thursday's contest against Cincinnati.

    Howard entered Thursday's matchup listed as questionable with a groin injury but managed to suit up and play through a majority of the game. The corner exited in the third quarter, forcing Nik Needham into the game.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Transferred to hospital

    Tagovailoa has been transferred to University of Cincinnati Medical Center after sustaining head and neck injuries Thursday against the Bengals, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports. He is conscious and has movement in all of his extremities.

    Tagovailoa's head hit the ground on a sack in the second quarter and he required a stretcher to leave the field. He was slammed hard into the ground for a second consecutive game, and while Tagovailoa was able to return to last week's win over the Bills, the quarterback has already been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game. Teddy Bridgewater came in after Tagovailoa's injury, and Miami also has third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson dressed due to the uncertainty over Tagovailoa's health coming into the game.

  • Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Stretchered off against Bengals

    Tagovailoa (back) was stretchered off the field in the second quarter of Thursday's game against the Bengals, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tagovailoa stayed down after being slammed into the ground on a sack by Josh Tupou. Miami's quarterback came into the game nursing back and ankle injuries, and he hit the ground hard with his back and helmet. Clarification on the nature and extent of Tua's injury will likely come after further testing, but he's unlikely to return to Thursday's game after completing eight of 14 passes for 110 yards and one interception. Teddy Bridgewater replaced Tagovailoa after the injury.

  • Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Set to play Thursday

    Van Ginkel (illness) is listed as active for Thursday's contest against the Dolphins.

    Van Ginkel has managed to suit up for every game this season and he will once again be available for the Dolphins. The 27-year-old linebacker will figure to see snaps on special teams as well as on defense in relief of Melvin Ingram on Thursday night against the Bengals.

  • Dolphins' Brandon Jones: Set to play Thursday

    Jones (chest) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Bengals.

    Jones suffered an apparent chest injury during Sunday's 21-19 victory over the Bills, but his ability to practice in a limited fashion during both of Tuesday's and Wednesday's sessions indicates he'll be good to go in Week 4 against Cincinnati. The 24-year-old figures to operate as the Dolphins No. 1 strong safety Thursday night.
