Now after being out for a few weeks, the Dolphins got a great update on Tua's health, he has officially been cleared for football activities. He will be returning to practice next week at the team prepares for Week 7.

The timeline for Tua was completely up in the air. The team was going to be as cautious as possible, as evidenced by them sending the 24 year old quarterback to see multiple specialists.
