Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa won’t play Sunday vs. Vikings

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) – Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa will return to practice Wednesday in a limited capacity.

He will not play Sunday against the Vikings.

Tagovailoa has been in the concussion protocol since Sept. 29 when he took a hit against the Cincinnati Bengals and had to be stretchered off the field and taken to a hospital. Tagovailoa hadn’t practiced since then.

He took hard hits in successive games, and the NFL’s concussion protocol was subsequently changed to address the symptoms he had during a loss to the Bills.

Rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson will start Sunday against the Vikings as Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater advance through the concussion protocol.
