Video: Ryan Fitzpatrick seen lead blocking for Myles Gaskin against Jaguars

Ryan Fitzpatrick

As the Miami Dolphins opened up a 14-0 lead over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first quarter on Thursday, there was an interesting sight.

Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was seen applying a block to help free up running back Myles Gaskin.

Fitzpatrick has gotten the start at the QB spot in each of the Dolphinsā€™ first three games, as rookie Tua Tagovailoa has been recovering from a hip injury.

Fitzpatrickā€™s size, especially weight-wise, gives him the ability to occasionally be a blocker, a luxury that few NFL quarterbacks possess.

On the Dolphinsā€™ opening drive, he connected with wide receiver Preston Williams on a short touchdown reception to put his team ahead.
