Marcus Spears explains how Jacoby Brissett will lead the Dolphins to victory against the Colts. (1:16).
Tua Tagovailoa, the Miami Dolphins' quarterback, will be out of the next two games due to injury reserve. However, ESPN sources have indicated that he should be available to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on Oct. 17.

Jacoby Brissett will continue to play for Miami, even though Tagovailoa is not able to make it, including Sunday against his old Indianapolis Colts team.

Tagovailoa broke his ribs Sept. 19 against Buffalo. It was a three-week injury.

The Dolphins chose not to waste Tagovailoa's roster spot and activated rookie backup quarterback Reid Sinnett, while Tagovailoa heals.

It is expected that Tagovailoa will be able to heal and throw again in three weeks.

Tagovailoa will not be able to participate in Week 5 against Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, those who are familiar with the injury believe that it will heal enough for Tagovailoa's Oct. 17 match in London.
