Tua Tagovailoa was replaced at quarterback by Ryan Fitzpatrick during the fourth quarter of the Miami Dolphins’ game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

The Dolphins were down 20-10 with under 10 minutes remaining when Fitzpatrick took over. There were questions about whether Tua was replaced due to performance or injury reasons. Tagovailoa entered the game with a foot injury, and CBS’ announcers speculated both reasons factored into the QB change.

There were further questions about whether the tackle Tagovailoa took on a sack led him to be replaced.
