  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Serving as emergency quarterback

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

    Thompson won't play Sunday but will still serve as Miami's emergency quarterback. The 2022 seventh-round pick will only be eligible to play if both Tua Tagovailoa and Mike White get injured in game.

  • 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.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Picked off twice Friday

    Thompson completed 10 of 16 passes for 104 yards and two interceptions in Friday's preseason loss to the Falcons.

    Mike White got the start for the Dolphins but failed to produce any points on three first-half drives, and he was picked off in the red zone on the team's opening possession. While Thompson did lead the club to a field goal in the second half for Miami's only points on the night, one of his two INTs was returned for an Atlanta score. The backup job behind Tua Tagovailoa remains unclaimed for now, but Thompson will likely have to clearly outperform White in camp and the preseason to move past him on the depth chart -- something he failed to do Friday.

  • Dolphins' Skylar Thompson: Battling for backup role

    Thompson and Mike White are expected to have an open competition for the backup quarterback role in Miami this season, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sentinel reports.

    Thompson appeared in eight games and made three starts -- including one in the postseason -- in 2022, producing 754 passing yards and two touchdowns while throwing five interceptions. The Dolphins brought in former Jet quarterback Mike White this offseason, signing him to a two-year, $8 million contract in March. Thompson will look to beat White out for the primary backup role behind Tua Tagovailoa.
