Tua Tagovailoa was limited in practice all week with finger and rib injuries, and one of those ailments is serious enough that it will force him to sit out in Week 9.

Tagovailoa has a small fracture in the middle finger on his throwing hand, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. While the injury is not expected to keep him out long-term, he will not play against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Jacoby Brissett will start in his place.

The Dolphins are committed to Tagovailoa for the remainder of the season after they were unable to trade for Deshaun Watson. Injuries have been a concern for the former Alabama star since he was drafted, and he has struggled to stay healthy again this year.

Tagovailoa also missed several games this season with a rib injury. He has 1,040 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions in five games this season.
