After a sub-optimal performance against the Patriots, Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the Dolphins starting quarterback for the time being. The team is going to move onto Tua Tagovailoa at some point, but don’t expect that to happen if Fitzpatrick has another bad game this weekend. Then with the team traveling to Jacksonville for a Thursday night game, it would be pretty tough to insert Tua into the lineup on such a short week.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
