I’ve not seen timidity from Tua this year. He has played boldly, maybe even a little reckless in the first game trying to make something happen.

He's taken a lot of hits. He seems fine. He was slammed to the ground and only has bruised ribs. That's a win. I haven't seen anything that shows that he is timid behind the line of scrimmage yet. If this crap does keep up it could ruin him. One thing I respected about Tannehill was his mental toughness to take a hit or make a bad play, and then forget it on the next play. But, as we saw, a physically tough QB has their limits. He couldn't stay healthy his last few years with us.

According to the report, X-rays were negative and Tagovailoa’s availability for the Dolphins’ Week 3 road game against the Las Vegas Raiders will come down to “pain tolerance and functionality.”
