Tannehill completed 17 of 23 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns while adding 44 yards on eight carries and losing one of two fumbles in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.
Tannehill guided his team to a 20-0 halftime lead with touchdown passes of 29 yards to Albert Wilson and 19 yards to A.J. Derby. He lost a fumble deep in his own territory after New York cut it to 20-6 in the third quarter, but Jets quarterback Sam Darnold promptly gave the ball right back with an interception in the end zone. The former college wide receiver put the game away with his legs, rushing for first downs with carries of 14 and eight yards as Miami ran out the clock on the final drive.
Tannehill completed 20 of 28 passes for 230 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while also running four times for five yards in Sunday's 27-20, Week 1 win over the Titans.
Both of Tannehill's touchdowns went to Kenny Stills. The first was a 10-yarder in the second quarter while the second was a 75-yard deep strike in the fourth. While thunderstorms delayed this contest into the night, Tannehill showed a great ability to stay focused and lead his team to victory. The Dolphins defense also bailed its quarterback out after his mistakes, as each of Tannehill's interceptions was followed by a Miami interception on the ensuing drive.
Tannehill was not sporting a knee brace at practice Friday, "perhaps for first time all camp," Chris Perkins of The Athletic Miami notes.
Lingering knee woes derailed Tannehill's 2017 season, but the QB appears to be approaching Week 1 in good health. It remains to be seen if shedding the brace is a temporary thing, but in any case, Tannehill is gearing up for what should be his final action of the preseason, this Saturday against the Ravens
Tannehill participated in Miami's first official practice of training camp Thursday wearing a brace on his surgically repaired left knee, Jeff Darlington of ESPN.com reports.
Tannehill, now nearly a year removed from his ACL tear, did not wear a brace during OTAs. Despite the reappearance of a brace, Tannehill confirmed after practice that his knee remains without issue. "I'm going to wear it in games, so [wearing it in practice] is just to get used to it," Tannehill said. Full participation in training camp is great news for the 30-year-old quarterback, who will use the time to build rapport with new receiving weapons Danny Amendola, Albert Wilson and Mike Gesicki.
Tannehill (knee) participated in team drills Wednesday without a knee brace, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Nine months removed from reconstructive left knee surgery, Tannehill was expected to participate in OTAs this week without restrictions and that appears to be the case. Given the extent and nature of his injury, it wouldn't be surprising if the team manages his contributions under center during training camp to keep him healthy for the start of the regular season. Given the other options on the roster -- Brock Osweiler, David Fales and Bryce Petty -- the Dolphins seem to be all in on Tannehill bouncing back from the injury.
