Ryan Fitzpatrick was easily the biggest cheerleader for Tua when he made his debut last week during a blowout game against the New York Jets.
The good times did not last as he would find out days later that he was being demoted for the rookie QB to takeover next week.
Fitzpatrick spoke to reporters on Wednesday and talked about his heart being broken when he found out he was being demoted.
Fitzpatrick finished with 191 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Jets.
Tagovailoa will make his first career start for the Dolphins on Nov. 1 at Hard Rock Stadium against the Los Angeles Rams.
