    Denver Broncos defensive end DeShawn Williams (90) fires Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (1) on Sunday.

MIAMI >> Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was limited in practice today with a previously undisclosed thumb injury on his throwing hand.

Tagovailoa was fired six times before being pulled in the fourth quarter of the Dolphins’ loss in Denver on Sunday.

After the game, coach Brian Flores said Tagovailoa was healthy and said the switch to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick was made in an attempt to spark the attack. Flores also said Tagovailoa remained his starting quarterback.

Walking back Salvon Ahmed (shoulder) and guard Solomon Kindley (foot) were practicing. Defensive lineman Christian Wilkins practiced and was activated from the reserve COVID-19 list after missing two games.

Miami (6-4) will play in the New York Jets on Sunday (0-10).
