This is a very tough break for Tua and the Dolphins. They’re 1-1 after getting obliterated by the Bills this past Sunday and they’re now going to be without their starting QB for at least one game.
If you’re a fan of the Dolphins, you have to be very concerned right now. Jacoby Brissett isn’t a bad backup option, but he’s not a guy you can ride with longterm.

Hopefully, Tua is able to return as quickly as possible and heal up ASAP. If he’s out for an extended period of time, the Dolphins are going to likely be in big trouble.

We’ll see how they do this Sunday with Brissett under center!
