Tankersley (knee) will miss the rest of the 2018 season with a torn ACL, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Tankersley cropped up on the injury report Thursday with the knee issue, but there was no indication it was a severe injury as he was still a limited practice participant. The 24-year-old has played only 29 defensive snaps this season, so the Miami defense is unlikely to feel a major impact as a result of his absence.
Tankersley 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 should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets due to a knee issue. 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.
Tankersly (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.
Tankersly has missed the past three games with an injured ankle. However, his absence from the injury report suggests he's returned to full health.
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.
