Miami Dolphins quarterback leaves the field after a 35-0 defeat to the Buffalo Bills with a rib injury; Carson Wentz, Andy Dalton and Tyrod Taylor among other QB injuries and highest paid NFL defender T.J. Watt suffered a groin injury with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was knocked out after a heavy second week loss to the Buffalo Bills following a rib injury in the first quarter.

Tua tried to make a short pass in a game with fourth and second when he was hit hard by Buffalo defender A.J. Epenes and came up holding onto his ribs. He was taken to the locker room and did not return to the field as Miami were defeated 35-0 at home.

Tua wasn’t the only quarterback to lose Sunday night in the NFL. Indianapolis Colts QB Carson Wentz came out late in the fourth quarter after being defeated by the Los Angeles Rams following an ankle injury.

The Colts starter hobbled off the field after being knocked to the ground by current defender of the year Aaron Donald. He was replaced by Jacob Eason, who was intercepted on his first run, and the Rams continued to win 27-24.

Colts head coach Frank Reich did not announce Wentz after the game, except that he would undergo further evaluation.

Chicago Bears – Starting Defender Andy Dalton suffered a knee injury in the first half of their 20-17 win over his former Cincinnati Bengals.

Dalton pushed a knee in a 14-yard scrum, striding carefully down the sideline. The starter returned for the next episode, but then limped into the locker room to make way for rookie Justin Fields.

Bears head coach Matt Nagy said after the game that they will learn more about Dalton’s knee injury in the next 24-48 hours, but he doesn’t believe Dalton suffered a serious ACL injury.

Houston Texans Tyrode Taylor was excluded from their 31-21 defeat to the Cleveland Browns due to a hamstring injury sustained towards the end of the first half.
