Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa entered concussion protocol yet again following the team's Week 17 game. He did not clear it in time to suit up in Week 18, and now it has been confirmed that will be the case once again in the Dolphins' Wild-Card Weekend game.

Tua Tagovailoa Injury Update

Head coach Mike McDaniel officially ruled out Tagovailoa for the Dolphins' contest against the Buffalo Bills since he has not cleared concussion protocol yet.

Tagovailoa was a key catalyst in the Dolphins success this season, success they saw drop off a cliff in the last five weeks of the season, limping to a 9-8 record after an 8-3 start.

It is expected that Skylar Thompson will once again start for the Dolphins in their playoff game, which isn't instilling much confidence in the Dolphins' chances with the fans or the oddsmakers. Thompson managed to quarterback the Dolphins to a win in Week 18, but he failed to get the Dolphins' offense into the endzone and only had a 76.3 passer rating. The Dolphins' defense was to thank on that day.

Miami is currently a 13.5-point road underdog against the Bills in their Wild-Card Weekend game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
