Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores expects QB Tua Tagovailoa to start against New York Jets

MIAMI -- Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is expected to start against the New York Jets, coach Brian Flores said Monday, after missing his past two starts with a fractured finger on his throwing hand.

Tagovailoa missed Miami's game against the Houston Texans in Week 9 and sat out the first half against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 10 before entering the game in relief of an injured Jacoby Brissett. The Dolphins won both games.

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 draft suffered the injury against the Buffalo Bills in Week 8 but was able to finish the game.
