  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Emergency QB for wild-card game

    Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's playoff game against Kansas City, and he will serve as Miami's emergency third quarterback for the contest.

    Thompson hasn't seen any game action this year, so it's not surprising that he's inactive for the opening round of the postseason. Mike White is serving as the backup to Tua Tagovailoa for the Dolphins in the wild-card contest.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Inactive for SNF

    Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive and will serve as Miami's emergency third quarterback against Buffalo on Sunday.

    Thompson hasn't yet been active this season but will be available as the Dolphins' third quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa and Mike White if necessary Sunday. However, Sunday's primetime matchup will decide the AFC East champion, so Tagovailoa is unlikely to exit the game outside of an injury or disqualification.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Working as emergency QB in Week 14

    Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive and will serve as Miami's emergency third quarterback against the Titans on Monday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Thompson hasn't yet been active for a game this season, though he's consistently been Miami's emergency quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa and Mike White. Thompson won't be able to enter Monday night's contest unless both Tagovailoa and White are unable to continue due to injury or disqualification.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Serving as emergency quarterback

    Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Serving as emergency QB in Week 1

    Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Chargers and has been designated as the emergency quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa and Mike White.

    The Dolphins announced Thompson would begin the season as the No. 3 quarterback earlier in the week, and this makes it official with respect to Week 1. Thompson unexpectedly received plenty of playing time last season as a rookie seventh-round pick, arguably making him one of the more battle-tested No. 3 signal-callers around the NFL despite his brief time in the league. He'll only see action versus Los Angeles if both Tagovailoa and White are sidelined with in-game injuries.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Starting as third-stringer

    Thompson will open the season as Miami's No. 3 quarterback behind Tua Tagovailoa and Mike White, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

    Thompson has officially lost the backup competition to Mike White, as expected. The 2022 seventh-round pick still has a ways to go in his development but did flash intriguing traits as a rookie, so the Dolphins have plenty of reason to continue his development. The league's new rules will allow all of Tagovailoa, White and Thompson to be active on game days, starting with Sunday's regular-season opener against the Chargers.
