Jacoby Brissett injury update: Dolphins QB  leaves game vs. Ravens, replaced by Tua Tagovailoa

Jacoby Brissett made his second start in as many weeks at quarterback for the Dolphins on Thursday before leaving the contest with a knee injury.

Brissett started the game ahead of Tua Tagovailoa, who has a fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand and who was named Brissett’s backup for the game against the Ravens.

Brissett was 11-for-23 passing for 156 yards before leaving. The Dolphins designated him as questionable to return.

In his first drive replacing Brissett, Tagovailoa went 1 for 3 for 9 yards. Given that his injury is to his throwing hand, it remains to be seen what his usage will be for the remainder of the game.
