Tua Tagovailoa is expected to start for the Dolphins next season



The Miami Dolphins are expected to have quarterback Tua Tagovailoa as the team’s starter in the 2023 season.

The team’s commitment to Tagovailoa was reported by ESPN on Sunday morning before the Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills Wild Card Playoff Game at Highmark Stadium.

Tagovailoa missed the Dolphins’ first postseason game in six years, as he is still in concussion protocol after missing the last two games of the regular season.

If Miami pulls off an upset to get past Buffalo, Tagovailoa could clear the concussion protocol in time for a divisional round matchup at the Kansas City Chiefs.

The report clarifies two things: that medical professionals believe Tagovailoa, who was diagnosed with two concussions this season, can continue his playing career despite the head injury, and that the Dolphins will not. look for another starting-caliber quarterback this offseason to replace or compete with Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa, in 13 games this season, led the NFL in passer rating.

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel and general manager Chris Grier are expected to address Tagovailoa’s position with the franchise at their end-of-season news conferences.

This story will be updated.
