Tagovailoa (finger) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets and has been cleared to start the contest, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Tagovailoa will reclaim starting duties from Jacoby Brissett for the first time since Week 8, though the Dolphins felt comfortable enough with the second-year signal-caller's health to use him in relief of Brissett in last week's upset win over the Ravens. Not only did Tagovailoa perform well off the bench in that contest, but he also closed the current week with a pair of full practices to assuage any lingering concern about his ability to play through a fractured middle finger on his throwing hand. According to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com, head coach Brian Flores confirmed Friday that Tagovailoa has looked good in practice this week despite "pushing through" some lingering discomfort in the finger, suggesting the 23-year-old won't be subject to any limitations against New York.
