The Miami Dolphins entered their Week 17 matchup against the New England Patriots without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa due to a concussion, meaning Teddy Bridgewater would get the start.
However, late in the third quarter, Bridgewater was hurt while trying to make a tackle on a pick-six that he threw to Patriots safety Kyle Dugger. The team announced that the injury is to his right ring finger, and his return is questionable.
In his place, the Dolphins have turned to rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson to lead the offense. This isn’t Thompson’s first action this season, but he still doesn’t have much experience in regular-season action.
