Ryan Tannehill seemed to make a full recovery from the season-ending knee injury he suffered in Week 14 last season, but he suffered a non-contact injury when he fell to the ground during a drill in training camp on Aug.3. In the days following, the Dolphins signed quarterback Jay Cutler, basically signaling that Tannehill will miss most or all of the 2017 season with what's believed to be another partially torn left ACL. Tannehill shouldn't be on any seasonal rosters and has bottomed out as a bench player in dynasty leagues.
Tannehill (knee) is recovering from surgery and is anticipated to return to the Dolphins' facility to rehab in the coming days, Chris Perkins of the Sun-Sentinel reports. Tannehill is already going through the early stages of rehab, but he'll soon do it with the help of Miami's medical staff. The quarterback's knee injury is anticipated to sideline him for around eight to 12 months. With him out, Jay Cutler will start for the Dolphins this season.
Tannehill is slated to undergo reconstructive knee surgery Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Based on typical injury rehab timetables, Tannehill is probably looking at a return to the field in 10-to-12 months following his reconstructive surgery. With those parameters in mind, the QB could be ready to go by the start on training camp in 2018, or not long after. Added clarity on that front will arrive in time, but what is already known is that Tannehill will not play this season, which paves the way for newcomer Jay Cutler to helm the team's offense in 2017.
Tannehill (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Saturday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports. After taking the time to consider all of his options, Tannehill evidently opted to undergo season-ending surgery to repair the partially torn ACL in his left knee. Fortunately, head coach Adam Gase said he "absolutely" expects the quarterback to be ready in time for the 2018 campaign. The freshly signed Jay Cutler is expected to take over as the starting QB in Tannehill's place, with Matt Moore staying put in the No. 2 role.
The Dolphins are expected to place Tannehill on injured reserve after upcoming reconstructive surgery on his left knee, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Tannehill had been weighing all his options with regard to the partially torn ACL in his left knee, but after attempting a recovery that included stem-cell treatment and rest, surgery is likely the best option for his long-term health. Since re-injuring himself on Aug. 3, the Dolphins coaxed Jay Cutler out of retirement to serve as their primary signal-caller, which will extend until the end of the season with Tannehill's own campaign over before it started.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Tannehill (knee) has yet to decide whether he'll undergo surgery, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Tannehill's likelihood of going under the knife appeared to increase upon Miami's signing of veteran quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday, but a final determination may not be made for a few more days. If Tannehill indeed opts for the surgical route, he'd effectively be ruled out of the entire 2017 campaign. Tannehill's other option would be to simply rehab his partially torn ACL, which would likely require a 6-to-8-week recovery period.
