Brian Flores announced yesterday that he would be sitting his starting quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, along with most of the other starters. Tua went 24 of 34 for 282 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. The second year quarterback looked more comfortable out on the field and he looked really good against the Falcons last week. This weekend of preseason games was considered the “dress rehearsal” game, but Flores seems to have seen enough from most of his starters during the preseason.

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