Miami Dolphins running back Jordan Howard offered some high praise for rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

Tagovailoa is working his way back from a brutal hip injury he suffered at the University of Alabama last season.

However, Howard recently said it is impossible to tell that Tagovailoa was ever injured at all based on how he’s moving around in camp.

Howard is in his first season with Miami after spending the 2019 NFL season with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tagovailoa, the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, could be paired with Howard in the backfield for years to come.

While Tagovailoa isn’t expected to open the season as the team’s starting quarterback, the Dolphins reportedly are looking to trade Josh Rosen.

The Dolphins shopping Rosen is a sign that Tagovailoa may have done enough to win the backup job already.

Miami begins its season Sept. 13 against the New England Patriots.
