The Miami Dolphins have enjoyed a perfect start to their 2022 campaign, picking up three wins from three, including a victory over Super Bowl favourites the Buffalo Bills last time out.

They will be hoping to continue their 100% start on Thursday, as they head to the Paycor Stadium to take on Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.

It looks as though they may have to do so without the talent of first-choice quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is listed as doubtful for the clash.

But who is the Miami Dolphins' backup quarterback in case of Tagovailoa's absence?

Who is the Miami Dolphins' backup quarterback for 2022?

Teddy Bridgewater is the Miami Dolphins' backup quarterback for the 2022 season.

The 29-year-old signed for the Dolphins earlier this year, on a one-year contract that is believed to be worth up to $10M.

Bridgewater featured briefly in the second quarter of Sunday's victory over the Buffalo Bills when Tua was sent for a head injury assessment.

It's safe to say he didn't impress in his short stint on the field, throwing two incomplete passes alongside a sack in the single drive that he put together.

Bridgewater was the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos for the first 14 games of the 2021 campaign before picking up a concussion in Week 15. He did not feature from there on out.

The Dolphins QB has also played for the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers throughout his nine-year career so far.

Will Tua Tagovailoa play against the Cincinnati Bengals?

Tua is currently listed as questionable to play in the Thursday Night Football clash.

The 2020 No.5 pick is listed as having both a back and an ankle problem, he did not participate in Monday's training session and only took part in a limited practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It is understood that Tua wants to play in the prime-time clash, but his involvement will be decided nearer to kick-off.
