Dolphins QB carted off after big hit from Bills

Tua Tagovailoa left the Miami Dolphins' 35-0 loss against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after taking a hit in the first quarter.

Tagovailoa threw incomplete on fourth-and-2 and was hit by Bills defensive end A.J. Epenesa. The quarterback remained on the ground until Dolphins staffers helped him make his way to the sideline. He was later carted to the locker room.

Tagovailoa was ruled questionable to return with a rib injury and later declared out for the rest of the contest.

Jacoby Brissett replaced him in the game and completed 24 of 40 passes for 169 yards and an interception. Brissett also took four sacks.

Tagovailoa completed one of four passes for 13 yards before exiting. He faced consistent pressure early and took two sacks. 

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft, Tagovailoa received head coach Brian Flores' backing this offseason even amid persistent speculation that the team could look to acquire Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
