Dolphins QB Gets Bad News Before Scrimmage


Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick’s mother died Saturday, and he left a morning scrimmage as it began to be with his family, coach Brian Flores said.

The team gathered in prayer as Fitzpatrick departed.

”On behalf of my family, I want to thank everyone who has reached out with well wishes,” Fitzpatrick said later on Twitter. ”It truly means a lot to us.”
