Even though Tua Tagovailoa is back at practice with his teammates, he still has some work to do before seeing the playing field for the Miami Dolphins. Teddy Bridgewater is also going through the concussion protocol, even though he doesn’t have one and he should be back at practice on Thursday. Mike McDaniel met with the media yesterday and the plan at quarterback for Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings is to start the seventh round rookie, Skylar Thompson. With Bridgewater unable to practice, McDaniel must feel it’s better to throw Thompson out there who has been able to participate all week.

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