  • Cordrea Tankersley: Let go by Miami

    Tankersley was activated off the reserve/COVID 19 list then waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    The 2017 third-round pick had a rough tenure in Miami, especially considering he spent all of the 2019 season rehabbing from a torn ACL. Tankersley has 36 tackles (26 solo) and seven pass breakups through 17 career games in the NFL.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins placed Tankersley (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    Tankersley was set to compete for a reserve gig in training camp, but he'll now have to wait until he receives medical clearance to join his teammates. The 2017 third-round pick spent all of the 2019 campaign on the PUP list while recovering from a torn ACL.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Aiming for backup role

    Tankersley (knee) will compete for a backup cornerback role in training camp, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tankersley spent the entire 2019 campaign on the PUP list due to an ACL tear that had limited him to just six games in 2018. Now fully healthy, the 26-year-old will get an opportunity to compete for a reserve gig in camp, but if he's unable to impress, Tankersley could be at risk of losing his roster spot.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Won't return from PUP list

    Tankersley (knee) wasn't activated off the PUP list Wednesday and will be out the rest of the season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tankersley returned to practice in mid-October and had a three-week window to practice where the Dolphins could activate him, but the team allowed that deadline to pass Wednesday with no roster move. The 25-year-old indicated he's healthy after recovering from a torn ACL in November 2018, but the team said he's still not in game shape.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Returns to practice field

    Tankersley (knee) was designated to return off the PUP list and resumed practicing Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Tankersley was limited to six games last season due to a torn ACL but now has a chance to rejoin the Dolphins. The 25-year-old will have until Nov. 6 to prove at practice that he's worthy of a spot on the 53-man roster.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Placed on reserve/PUP list

    Tankersley (knee) was placed on Miami's reserve/PUP list Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.

    Tankersley's placement on the reserve/PUP list means that he'll be out through at least Week 6. The 25-year-old is managing his recovery from a torn ACL and could contribute depth to Miami's secondary if he gets healthy.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Starting camp on PUP list

    Tankersley (knee) was placed on the physically unable to perform list by the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Tankersley is dealing with a torn ACL that he suffered in November and is still looking at a few months more of recovery according to his timetable of 9-to-12 months. The 25-year-old's absence won't affect the defense much, considering Bobby McCain and the recently signed Xavien Howard will be back for 2019 after taking a significant portion of the cornerback snaps last season. Tankersley can come off the list at any time, but it's likely he won't be ready to start the regular season.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Not participating in OTAs

    Tankersley is still dealing with a torn ACL and is not practicing during OTAs, Omar Kelly of The Sun Sentinel reports.

    This news isn't surprising, given the fact that Tankersley suffered the injury in early November and was looking at a 9-to-12-month recovery. Furthermore, Tankersley is likely to land on the physically unable to perform list to start the season, per Kelly. The 25-year-old's absence won't effect the defense much, considering Bobby McCain and recently-signed Xavien Howard will be back for 2019 after taking a significant portion of the cornerback snaps last season.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Placed on IR

    Tankersley (knee) has officially been placed on injured reserve by the Dolphins.

    Tankersley will miss the remainder of the 2018 season due to a torn ACL, though his absence won't have much of an impact on the Dolphins' defense because he spent a majority of his time on special teams.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Suffers torn ACL

    Tankersley (knee) will miss the rest of the 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL in Thursday's practice, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Tankersley popped up on the injury report Thursday with the knee issue, but it wasn't revealed until a day later that his limitations in the session were the result of a significant setback. The 24-year-old has played only 29 defensive snaps this season, so Miami is unlikely to feel a major impact as a result of his absence.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Pops up on injury report

    Tankersley (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

    Tankersley is a surprise addition to Miami's injury report after having participated in practice without issue to begin the week, and he should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. Tankersley has played only 29 defensive snaps this season -- all of which came in Week 6 -- so the Dolphins' defense likely wouldn't suffer if the second-year pro were to miss any time.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Absent from injury report

    Tankersley (ankle) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Bills, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Inactive Week 16

    Tankersley (ankle) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Tankersley now will miss his third straight game due to an undisclosed ankle injury. His absence should again lead to expanded roles for Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Tagged as questionable

    Tankersley (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tankersley has missed back-to-back games due to an ankle injury, and the Dolphins may elect to continue proceeding cautiously with their rookie cornerback in Week 16. If he's held out, Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner would likely see additional snaps alongside starter Xavien Howard.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Not playing Week 15

    Tankersley (ankle, shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

    Tankersley was actually downgraded to out on Saturday and did not travel with the team to Buffalo. Bobby McCain will start at cornerback in his place, with Alterraun Verner serving as the team's primary nickel corner.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Doubtful for Week 15

    Tankersley (ankle, shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

    Tankersley participated in a limited fashion at practice Thursday and Friday, but it's not overly surprising to see the Dolphins being cautious with their rookie cornerback. Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner are again slated for increased workloads, especially with Xavien Howard (illness) listed as questionable.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Limited at practice Thursday

    Tankersley (ankle/shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Tankersley was sidelined for Monday's win over the Patriots with the dual injuries, opening up a start at cornerback for Bobby McCain. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase stated Thursday that he was unsure about Tankersley's status for the rest of the season, but the fact that the 24-year-old was on the field in some capacity suggests he's not at any immediate risk of getting placed on injured reserve.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Inactive Monday

    Tankersley (ankle) is listed as inactive for Monday's game against the Patriots.

    Tankersley was unable to practice throughout the week -- ultimately earning a doubtful designation -- so it isn't surprising to see him unable to suit up Monday. The absence will mark his first since Week 3. While he is sidelined, Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner figure to pick up the slack at cornerback.

  • Dolphins' Cordrea Tankersley: Doubtful for Week 14

    Tankersley (ankle/shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Patriots.

    Tankersley was unable to practice this week and it seems to be a matter of time until he is officially ruled out. Cornerbacks Alterraun Verner and Bobby McCain will be asked to play larger roles against Tom Brady and the Patriots on Monday.
