LONDON (AP) — Tua Tagovailoa will start but the Miami Dolphins will be without starting cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Byron Jones for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.
Howard had earlier been ruled out but Jones, who has an Achilles tendon injury, was questionable and had hoped to play.
Barring a setback, Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is ready for his comeback.
Tagovailoa returns to his starting role Sunday when the Dolphins play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, after missing most of the last four games — all of them Miami losses — with fractured ribs.
