If you are a fan of the Miami Dolphins and are awaiting the start of the Tua Tagovailoa, you are going to have to wait just a bit longer.
Miami announced on Tuesday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain under center when the team travels to San Francisco for a game with the 49ers.
Head coach Brian Flores said on Monday he will not be pressured into starting the rookie signal-caller. If the play of Fitzpatrick does not improve, Flores might have to pull the trigger sooner rather than later.
The 37-year old journeyman has thrown for 994 yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions while completing 69 percent of his passes. If he struggles against the 49ers, it could be the start of Tua time in South Beach.

- The Tennessee Titans have had no new positive COVID-19 tests for the second consecutive day. This bodes well in terms of the Titans getting back on the field, as they should be able to return to the team facilities as soon as Wednesday. Tennessee is scheduled to host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and that now looks likely to happen.
- In other COVID news, Patriots quarterback Cam Newton is said to be asymptomatic. If Newton is able to test negative twice within a 24 span, he could return to game action this Sunday against the Broncos. Newton missed Monday Night’s game against the Chiefs.
- The Chiefs defeated the Patriots on Monday night, but Patrick Mahomes does not think it was because of him, despite throwing for 236 yards and two touchdowns. “I didn’t play very good football,” Mahomes said, via The Athletic’s Nate Taylor.
