The Facts: Further tests revealed Tagovailoa has fractured ribs and will not play Sunday, Brian Flores announced Wednesday.
Diehards Line:The injury is not a season-ender but they are trying to save him from himself. Tua wants to play but Flores said they are taking it “week to week” with Tua and they aren’t thinking about IR. There was optimism after initial tests but they ran more and fracture was revealed. Jacoby Brissett will start this week with Reid Sinnett as the backup.
