Mike McDaniel says it's too early to say who will start at quarterback for the Miami Dolphins this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings.
Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater are both in the NFL's concussion protocol with no firm timeline to return. The Dolphins may turn to seventh-round pick Skylar Thompson to make his first start.
"It's too soon for me to really pinpoint that," McDaniel said. "There's, again, I kind of have to wait and assess the whole situation, which I do not have in scope. What I do know is that Skylar will be practicing on Wednesday and hopefully Wednesday I'll have a better feel of the direction that we should go that's best for the football team."
Thompson filled in for Bridgewater in this past Sunday's 40-17 loss to the New York Jets.
He finished the game with 166 yards on 19-of-33 passing. He also threw an interception and lost a fumble in what McDaniel called a "rough rookie outing."
