The Miami Dolphins, after such a promising start to the season, have lost their past five games. Their chances of making the postseason boil down to a do-or-die Week 18 matchup against the New York Jets. They will also need the New England Patriots to lose to the Buffalo Bills.
Starting QB Tua Tagovailoa missed the Dolphins’ Week 17 loss due to a concussion and he’s not expected to play this week. Backup QB Teddy Bridgewater dislocated the pinky finger on his throwing hand, clouding his Week 18 status in doubt.
If Bridgewater is unable to play, rookie Skylar Thompson will get the starting nod against the Jets on Sunday. Thus, the Dolphins have made a crucial move with their season on the line, signing veteran QB Mike Glennon to their practice squad, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Glennon hasn’t played at all this season following a six-game stint for the New York Giants last season. His last win as a starting QB came in 2017 back when he was still with the Chicago Bears. Glennon has gone winless in the past two seasons, going a combined 0-9 while splitting time with the Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars.
