MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa won’t start Sunday because of a fractured finger in his throwing hand, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Schefter tweeted that the small fracture in Tagovailoa’s middle finger hasn’t healed enough to let him start against the Houston Texans.

A source told Schefter that Jacoby Brissett, who filled in for Tagovailoa while he was out with a rib injury, is expected to take over QB duties.

Schefter also tweeted that the fracture shouldn’t keep Tagovailoa out for long, but his Week 10 status will be in question because it’s a Thursday night game against the Baltimore Ravens.
