Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is still awaiting clearance to practice ahead of his team’s Wild Card playoff fixture against the Buffalo Bills.
Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel revealed as much on Monday, adding the QB hasn’t suffered any setbacks since entering concussion protocol on December 26. There is no official timeline on a return for Tua but McDaniel said he was hoping to know more, as it pertains to the player’s status, by this Wednesday.
