The Miami Dolphins will start Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback beginning in Week 8 after their bye.

Tagovailoa's first NFL start will come 351 days after he suffered a dislocated right hip and posterior wall fracture.

Ryan Fitzpatrick had been playing well, leading the Dolphins to two consecutive wins by a combined score of 67-17. He also has the seventh-best QBR (79.6) in the NFL.

Tagovailoa played for the first time at the end of the Dolphins' blowout win over the New York Jets.
