NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports testing on Tua Tagovailoa's rib injury didn't reveal any "major issues."
20 September 2021
Tagovailoa required a cart after suffering a painful rib injury early in Miami's Week 2 decimation at the hands of the Bills. Though it appears he avoided a long-term injury, he'll likely miss considerable practice time this week ahead of the Dolphins' Week 3 matchup against Vegas. Jacoby Brissett -- disastrous Sunday in Tua's place -- would get the nod against the Raiders if Tagovailoa is sidelined. Every fantasy relevant Miami player would be downgraded and the Raiders surprisingly good defense would become a must-start option in Week 3. Even if Tua starts, the Vegas defense is a solid play.
