DAVIE, Fla. -- When healthy, Tua Tagovailoa is the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback. It's a simple statement coach Brian Flores made clear Sunday, closing the chapter, he hopes, on the yearlong question of whether Tagovailoa or Ryan Fitzpatrick gives the Dolphins the better chance to win.
"Yeah, if he's healthy, he's the guy. I don't know how many different ways we have to continue to say that," Flores said of Tagovailoa. "We'll see how he does in practice over the course of the week. He's a tough kid. It was very close to him being able to go, but we have to make good decisions for him as well.
