The fifth year will net Tunsil $9.7 million but is only guaranteed for injury. The 2016 first-round pick is now slated to be Miami's starting left tackle for at least the next two seasons.
Tunsil (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Vikings, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Tunsil never progressed beyond limited participation at practice this week, but the Dolphins feel well enough to not saddle him with an injury designation. The 24-year-old should take up his usual post at starting left tackle Sunday at Minnesota.
Tunsil (knee) is participating in some form during Tuesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
The first-round pick suffered a knee injury in Week 9 against the Jets and was unable to suit up in Week 10. Following the bye week, Tunsil appears to be on track for a return to the field in Week 12. The Dolphins will make the official call on Tunsil's availability for Sunday, but if he can't go, Zach Sterup will likely draw the start again in his absence.
Tunsil (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
The Dolphins will be down both of their starting tackles in Tunsil and Ja'Wuan James (kneecap) and one of their starting guards (Ted Larsen) in Week 10, a scary reality with the immobile Brock Osweiler under center. Zach Sterup will fill in at left tackle for Tunsil, per Beasley.
Tunsil said that the knee injury he sustained during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets is "not serious," Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Tunsil exited Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets due to a knee injury, but does not appears in danger of missing any time. If Tunsil is able to go Week 10, Zach Sterup will return to a reserve role.
