Tua Tagovailoa could potentially appear for the Miami Dolphins in Sunday’s wildcard showdown with AFC East rivals Buffalo, with the quarterback yet to be ruled out.
Tagovailoa has missed the Dolphins’ last two games – including Miami’s 9-6 win in the playoffs against the New York Jets – after suffering a concussion in Christmas Day’s 26-20 loss to Green Bay.
It was the third concussion scare of the season for the ex-Alabama quarterback. As of December 26, Tagovailoa has been on concussion protocol and has yet to be cleared for any football activity.
Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Monday he hopes to have more clarity on Tagovailoa’s status for Sunday by Wednesday.

He mentioned that there had been no setbacks and that Tagovailoa was positive. Despite the importance of Sunday’s do-or-die game at Orchard Park, there’s no concrete timeline for his return.
“If he’s cleared to train, he’ll train,” McDaniel told reporters. “Until then I won’t do anything.”
Freshman Tyreek Hill at Miami gave no sign of Tagovailoa’s post-game readiness on Sunday CBS sports.

“When Tua comes back it’s going to be special because when he’s in there it’s different,” Hill said.
When asked directly if Tagovailoa was likely to play for Buffalo, he replied, “Well, that’s a little above my pay grade.
“If you can see my eyes, I won’t blink. I’ll keep my eyes wide open
Tagovailoa’s first concussion scare came in the second quarter against the Bills in September
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reported on New Year’s Day that Tagovailoa wanted to return for the playoffs if Miami made it.
“I know about Tua – there are people who say if he’ll ever play again, if he’ll ever play again this year,” Glazer said.
‘Tua plans to play again this year if they make the playoffs. He would like to play this year if they make the playoffs.’
If Tagovailoa is unable to walk, backup Teddy Bridgewater is likely to start under center.
