Jacoby Brissett made his second start in as many weeks at quarterback for the Dolphins on Thursday before leaving the contest with a knee injury.

Brissett started the game ahead of Tua Tagovailoa, who has a fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand and who was named Brissett’s backup for the game against the Ravens.

Brissett was 11-for-23 passing for 156 yards before leaving. The Dolphins designated him as questionable to return.

In his first drive replacing Brissett, Tagovailoa went 1 for 3 for 9 yards. Given that his injury is to his throwing hand, it remains to be seen what his usage will be for the remainder of the game.
