Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (back/ankle) to play tonight vs. Bengals

Thursday Night Football is going to get its marquee matchup.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (back/ankle) is active and will play tonight against the Cincinnati Bengals,

Also active are Dolphins wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) and offensive tackle Terron Armstead (toe).

Earlier Thursday, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported Tagovailoa was expected to play, along with Armstead and Waddle.

Tagovailoa suffered the injuries in Sunday's thrilling win over Buffalo, a statement victory that forced the rest of the NFL to take Miami seriously after just three games this season. Entering a short week, there was legitimate concern Tagovailoa might not be able to face off against his fellow 2020 draft classmate, Joe Burrow, under the bright lights of Thursday night, leading to a questionable status for the game.

Those worries can be set aside. Tagovailoa should take the field at Paycor Stadium with his full complement of receivers available to him.

Thanks to the contributions of Waddle and new addition Tyreek Hill, Tagovailoa ranks first in completion percentage and passing yards per attempt on downfield passes in the first three weeks of the 2022 season. We should expect more fireworks between the Dolphins and Bengals tonight.
