Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said after Miami’s loss to the Broncos that, despite being benched, Tua Tagovailoa will remain the starting quarterback.
Tua was sacked a whopping six times before Miami sat him. Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn’t much better, going 12/18 for 117 yards and a killer interception at the end of the game to end Miami’s five-game winning streak. Tua will get a chance to bounce back against the 0-10 Jets in Week 12.
The team will go with Walker to start, who has a good arm. This should boost the chances of Mike Davis getting looks against one of the worst run defenses in Detroit. But we’ve seen PJ can sling it, so the offense doesn’t take too much of a hit, especially against Detroit.
Update: Joe Person of The Athletic is reporting Bridgewater will not play.
