“I’m feeling good,” Tagovailoa said, according to the Miami Herald. “I think that’s a question for coach [Dolphins head coach Brian Flores] and our head trainer. But as a competitor, you always want to go out there and you want to be able to play. Flo and our medicals staff, they have the best interests for us [in mind]. They wouldn’t put me out there if they thought it would be harmful. Taking it one day at a time and trusting those guys.”
Upon his return, Tagovailoa may have to wear a wrap on his thumb, which is on his throwing hand.
“I had to wrap my hand, and [I’m] getting used to the wrap and whatnot,” Tagovailoa said. “Just other than that, I’m trying to get into the rhythm again with some of the guys. Continue to learn from [Ryan Fitzpatrick], continue to learn from our coaches.”
It appears that Tagovailoa may be a game-time decision, but if he cannot go the Dolphins will be ready to roll with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.
