I think we are seeing how much that hip injury affected his throwing on deep passes last year. Coming into the draft, draft analysts said his arm strength was comparable to Joe Burrows, but it sure didn't look like it last year. Now, he needs to stop getting these random injuries, because an important quality of a franchise QB is the ability to stay on the field.

Tua Tagovailoa hasn’t answered questions about whether he can stay healthy for an entire season. But the Dolphins’ second-year quarterback has answered a few questions that lingered after his rookie season, including this one: There’s no need to worry about his vertical passing skills. This season, he has been accurate on his intermediate-to-deep passes on the limited occasions he throws them, though only one has resulted in a touchdown.

Last season, Tagovailoa completed only 10 of 29 passes that traveled at least 20 air yards, with three of those passes dropped. This season, Tagovailoa has completed 9 of 17 of those types of passes for 352 yards, one touchdown (the 65-yarder to Mack Hollins against the Jets) and one interception.

Tagovailoa’s 52.9 completion percentage on those 20-plus-yard-air throws ranks second in the NFL among quarterbacks who have thrown at least five such passes, per Pro Football Focus.
