AFC Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots



Dolphins HC Brian Flores said the team felt that QB Tua Tagovailoawasn’t able to make all the throws“, which is why he did not start against Houston.

He was limited all week, but he’s tough. He tried to go,” Flores said, via PFT. “It really just became about how far could he throw? Would he be able to make all the throws we needed him to make? We thought it was enough to put him in the backup role and we felt like that was the best thing for the team. We would’ve had to change some things offensively if he had to go in.”

  • Flores told reporters that Tagovailoa threw on Monday: “Looked good. Somewhat limited. We will take it day to day and see how he looks today and tomorrow and take it up to the day of the game. Swelling is done. Getting better. Still some limitations for sure.” (Barry Jackson)
