For now Tua Tagavailoa returned to the training field, his return to game action must wait at least another week.

Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday he won’t let Tagovailoa face off Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, even if he clears the concussion protocol.

“He didn’t do anything on the football field for literally two weeks,” McDaniel said, via the team official website. “It would be unfair to the player. That would be unfair to the team. I don’t think I feel comfortable putting them in that situation.”

Peter Schrager discusses the Dolphins’ Tua Tagovailoa injury and the impact of concussions on the NFL

Peter Schrager discusses the injury to Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins and the impact of concussions on football during “FOX NFL Kickoff.”

Tagovailoa last appeared on the field of play on September 29 vs Cincinnati Bengals, in which he was carted off the field after suffering a concussion. Just four days earlier, the Dolphins QB struggled to stay upright after taking a hard hit a Buffalo Bills defender and had to leave the game due to a head injury. That designation was later changed to an ankle/back injury, and Tagovailoa returned to the game in the second half and finished the game in Miami’s win.

Teddy Bridgewaterwho replaced Tagovailoa in Week 4, sat out the next week’s game vs New York Jets and after being put on the concussion report, didn’t return either. McDaniel announced that he was a rookie Skylar Thompson, who replaced Bridgewater last week, will start Sunday against Minnesota. In three-plus quarters against the Jets, Thompson completed 57.6% of his throws for 166 yards, no touchdowns and one interception and a 58.4 quarterback rating.

Miami is 3-2 in second place in the AFC East.
