Tagovailoa’s agent, Leigh Steinberg, deleted and reposted a Facebook message that initially said he was going to watch Tagovailoa play on Sunday.
The updated post was then changed to say that Steinberg was looking forward to watching the Dolphins take on Cincinnati.
Tua Tagovailoa agent on Facebook first says he’s attending Sunday game to watch QB play vs. Bengals then edits to say he’s coming to watch Dolphins. 😆🤔

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores has yet to name a starting quarterback this week as Tagovailoa is nursing a thumb injury.
The rookie missed last week’s contest against the New York Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick started in his place and led Miami to a win, pushing it to 7-4 on the season.
Tagovailoa was benched in the Dolphins’ loss to the Denver Broncos before missing last week’s game.
