Tannehill (shoulder) is scheduled to begin throwing a football next week with the hope of playing Nov. 25 against Indianapolis, but Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald believes the plan is optimistic.
Tannehill has already been ruled out for a fifth straight game this upcoming Sunday in Green Bay, with coach Adam Gase admitting Wednesday that it isn't even clear if the quarterback has made meaningful progress in his recovery from a shoulder capsule injury. Gase's admission hints at additional missed time beyond Sunday, though a Week 11 bye at least gives Tannehill some chance to avoid that scenario. Tannehill did sound a bit more positive than his coach, saying he's confident the shoulder is improving with time. Whatever the case, Brock Osweiler will start Sunday's game at Lambeau Field.
As expected, Tannehill will be held out for a fifth consecutive game ahead of the Dolphins' Week 11 bye. The team is optimistic he'll be ready to go immediately thereafter, but coach Adam Gase admitted Wednesday that he isn't sure if the quarterback has made meaningful progress in his recovery from the shoulder capsule injury, according to Salguero. Brock Osweiler will get at least one more start this weekend, with possibly more to follow.
Tannehill (shoulder) wasn't seen throwing during Wednesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
With Tannehill still not cleared for full activity, the stage appears set for another Brock Osweiler to make another start in Week 10 against the Packers. Look for coach Adam Gase to make an announcement on that front later Wednesday. Assuming Tannehill ends up being ruled out, his next chance to play would arrive Nov. 25 against the Colts with the Dolphins on bye in Week 11.
Coach Adam Gase admitted he isn't sure if Tannehill (shoulder) will be ready to return after a Week 11 bye, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Gase is essentially acknowledging Brock Osweiler will get the nod Wednesday when the team names its starter for Week 10 in Green Bay. The hope was to get Tannehill back after a bye the following week, but it doesn't seem like something we should count on. Gase said the 30-year-old quarterback has been inconsistent in his throwing sessions, with discomfort still present in his shoulder. Tannehill was initially reported to be dealing with an AC joint sprain, but it turns out he has a less commonly seen injury to the capsule that surrounds the joint and rotator cuff in his shoulder.
Tannehill (shoulder) isn't likely to return for Week 10 at Green Bay, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Coach Adam Gase said the announcement won't come until Wednesday, at which point he'll likely name Brock Osweiler as the starting quarterback for a fifth straight week. The Dolphins likely will allow Tannehill to rest through a Week 11 bye, after Gase acknowledged Monday that the quarterback has shown inconsistent progress in his recovery from a shoulder capsule injury, per Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Regardless of the quarterback situation, the Dolphins will be big underdogs in Green Bay for Week 10.
