The Miami Dolphins' season came to a screeching halt in Week 4. Not only did they suffer their first defeat of the year, but they also lost starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa to a scary head injury. With Tagovailoa out indefinitely, the team was quick to add another signal-caller this week.

Miami Dolphins News

The Dolphins worked out a few different players on Monday, including Ben DiNucci, Jake Fromm and Reid Sinnett. Sinnett is the one they ended up inking to a deal, perhaps because he already spent time with Miami in 2020 and 2021.

Sinnett was eventually waived by the Dolphins in October of 2021 and claimed by the Philadelphia Eagles. After serving as their practice squad QB that year, he was recently cut in August at the 53-man roster deadline. He has yet to appear in a regular-season game, but has seen preseason action.

The former University of San Diego standout completed 52.1% of his pass attempts (25-of-48) for 254 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception this past preseason. Those efforts came after he completed 66.7% of his pass attempts (30-of-45) for 401 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception with Miami during the 2021 preseason.

Dolphins vs Jets Week 5 Odds

With Tagovailoa already ruled out for Week 5, look for veteran Teddy Bridgewater to draw the start against the New York Jets and for rookie Skylar Thompson to serve as his backup. For now, the Dolphins are tabbed as 3.5-point road favorites with -178 moneyline odds on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds for this AFC East rivalry game.
