The Dolphins selected Tua Tagovailoa with their top pick in the 2020 draft and many expect the QB to redshirt his rookie campaign as he recovers from hip surgery (Ryan Fitzpatrick is -550 to start the season as Miami’s starter).
While the plan may not be for Tua to get snaps early, surely the Dolphins would like to see him healthy in the event that they do put him on the field. His physical therapist suggests that the QB’s timeline for recovery is going better than expected.
“He’s doing miraculously well,” Kevin Wilk told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “The miraculous part is that he healed so well. The second part is, he’s been so well at getting his strength back, which usually takes a long time after something like this.”
Tua was in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick before his hip injury forced him to miss the remainder of his final season at the University of Alabama.
“He’s laser focused. One of the most focused I’ve ever seen anybody, to be honest,” Wilk said.
