Filling in as Week 3 starter
Brissett will start under center in Sunday's game against the Raiders, replacing an injured Tua Tagovailoa (ribs), Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Tagovailoa was ruled out Wednesday and is considered week-to-week after being diagnosed with fractured ribs. Brissett replaced the second-year pro at the start of Miami's third drive in Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills, ultimately completing 24 of 40 passes for only 169 yards, while taking four sacks and tossing an interception. Brissett should look a bit better with more practice reps this week, and the ice-cold Miami offense could get a boost from Will Fuller's expected season debut.
