The Miami Dolphins officially activated QB Tua Tagovailoa off of injured reserve on Saturday and elevated WR Isaiah Ford and WR Kirk Merritt to their active roster.

The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Dolphins to pick up for the 2024 season. 

In 2021, Tagovailoa has started two games and completed 17-31 pass attempts (54.8 percent) for 215 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He’s also rushed for a touchdown.
