Tagovailoa is currently on concussion protocol for the second time this campaign. He complained of symptoms after the 26-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Earlier this season, two hard tackles in five days against the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals forced him out of action for a few weeks.

In his third season in the NFL, Tagovailoa completed 64.8% of his passes for 3,548 yards, 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The Dolphins will therefore try without Tagovailoa to put an end to a streak of four losses. They remain for the moment in second place in the Eastern Division of the American Conference, within the portrait of the playoffs. Teddy Bridgewater should be in charge of the offensive unit against the Patriots.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert stood out off the field Thursday night, helping with efforts to rescue four people involved in a helicopter crash.

As reported by ESPN, the aircraft experienced an engine problem and nosed over while approaching Peter-O.-Knight Airport and ended up in the water near a yacht club. A few minutes later, good Samaritans headed to the scene in watercraft; Gabbert drove one of the two "jet skis", while his two brothers were located on the other. Police sources said the helicopter pilot and three passengers left the craft safe and sound after being taken away by their benefactors.

“They quietly brought us back to the shore, a sandy beach being nearby, and we were able to socialize a little, told the chain FOX Sports one of the passengers, Hunter Happ, who was accompanied by his parents. We exchanged pleasantries when we got back. They were a real asset to us because for a while they were the only ones around. We had a handshake and we said a huge thank you.

Gabbert is the assistant center behind Tom Brady in Tampa. He hasn't played this season and in his first two campaigns with the "Bucs" he played 10 games, without starting a single one. Previously, it evolved with four other organizations.
