MIAMI >> Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is questionable for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati due to a thumb injury that forced him to miss last week’s victory over the New York Jets.

Tagovailoa has been limited in practice since injuring the thumb on his throwing hand during a practice on Nov. 25. Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Tagovailoa last week, throwing two touchdown passes.

Backsliding Matt Breida was placed on the reserve COVID 19 list on Friday, adding further uncertainty in a position badly hit by injuries.

Salvon Ahmed’s running backs (shoulder) and DeAndre Washington (hamstring) are questionable, and backward receiver Malcolm Perry (chest) is questionable. Myles Gaskin, Miami’s lead rusher this season, could be reactivated after a knee injury forced him to miss the past four games.
