Ryan Tannehill said this year's Dolphins team is the best offense he's ever played on.
"It’s definitely the most talent we’ve had with the receiving corps, bringing everyone back, having a second year together," he said. Tannehill went on to praise Julius Thomas while citing DeVante Parker as a possible breakout candidate. Tannehill will wear a knee brace this season, though he claims to be 100 percent. Despite a quality pass-catcher corps, the Dolphins will still be a run-first offense with Jay Ajayi as the focal point. Jul 2 - 9:41 AM

Ryan Tannehill credits stem cell therapy with healing his injured ACL.

Tannehill has been practicing without restriction since March. Tannehill's injury was not a full tear. Avoiding surgery is often the same thing as merely delaying it, but that does not appear to be the case in this instance. Tannehill had never missed a game until he went down late last season.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase says Ryan Tannehill (knee) "looks normal."

"Looks like he did last year. He moves around fine," said Gase. "You can tell he wasn’t real happy about getting hurt." Tannehill has been working with no restrictions despite being five months removed from a partially torn ACL. There’s been no concern over his OTA status. The Dolphins turned Tannehill into an Alex Smith-like game manager in Gase's first season as coach.

The Dolphins' Oct. 1 London game against the Saints will kick off at 9:30AM ET.

The NFL was supposedly done with its early kickoffs across the pond, but apparently there's still more royalists to be won over to the American version of football. Prepare to be inconvenienced when setting your fantasy lineups.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (knee) has "no restrictions."

"As far as I know, he's been doing everything he can do," Gase added. "I'm expecting him to look pretty close to how he did when he got injured." This matches a February report from The Miami Herald which said Tannehill is "healed" and will be ready for the offseason program. Gase also said he has not been told Tannehill needs to change the way he plays or run less, which is great news for his fantasy value moving forward.

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill will be more of a pocket passer moving forward.

Tannehill missed the final four games (including playoffs) with a partially torn ACL. He didn’t require surgery, but the Dolphins plan on running him less to stay healthy. Tannehill hasn’t been a huge rushing factor the last two years, averaging just 36 carries. It’s not a major downgrade to his 2017 outlook.
Mar 4 - 8:20 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) is "healed" and will be ready for OTAs.

Tannehill did not require surgery to repair the partially torn ACL and sprained MCL which ended his season in Week 14. Salguero reports the team could manage his workload, but he will be good to go for the "entire offseason program." Coming off one of his best seasons, another full offseason in coach Adam Gase's system could allow Tannehill to take another step forward.
Feb 23 - 12:33 PM

A source told the Miami Herald that Ryan Tannehill's damaged ACL is "stable."

Whether that means he'll be healthy soon is unclear. Tannehill eschewed surgery in favor of rest and rehab, and the Herald reports he's "seriously considered" undergoing "stem cell injections and platelet rich plasma (PRP)" therapy. The Dolphins seem to believe Tannehill will recover normally. "We're excited about the future with him," insisted VP of Football Operations Mike Tannenbaum.
Feb 3 - 4:20 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Ryan Tannehill isn't expected to require surgery on his torn ACL.

Tannehill will have an MRI on Monday to confirm the news. After partially tearing his ACL late in the regular season, Tannehill and the Dolphins had still been unsure up to this point if he'd need surgery. They had to wait for the ligament to heal further before making a decision. Tannehill probably will be held out of most of spring work, but he should be ready well in time for training camp.
Jan 30 - 8:32 AM

Dolphins Executive VP Mike Tannebaum said there's been no decision on whether Ryan Tannehill will undergo offseason knee surgery.

It's essentially what the Dolphins have been saying for the last month and a half. If Tannehill does eventually undergo surgery, the Dolphins' medical staff sure wasted a lot of time coming to that decision. ACL reconstruction can sometimes require up to a ninth-month recovery, which would put Tannehill's status in doubt for Week 1. Hopefully the fact that surgery hasn't been recommended yet is a sign that Tannehill won't need it.
Jan 25 - 7:04 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said the team is still "evaluating" Ryan Tannehill's knee injury.

"I don’t have the information to tell you what’s going on, where exactly we’re at and what happens moving forward," Gase said. "Doctors are still giving us what possibly could be down the road. So it’s hard for us to really pinpoint anything as of this moment right now." It sounds like the medical staff is still trying to decide if Tannehill needs surgery, which is odd considering he suffered the injury a month ago. At this point, Tannehill's offseason availability is up in the air.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins "aren't counting on" Ryan Tannehill (knee) for next week's Divisional Round game.

That's if they're able to beat Pittsburgh in Sunday's Wild Card game. Tannehill returned to a limited practice on Friday but didn't sound overly confident about his status. He's making progress but ultimately we'd be surprised if Tannehill suits up again this season. Matt Moore will continue to fill in as the Dolphins' signal-caller.
Jan 8 - 8:43 AM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he's "uncertain" if he'll be ready for a potential Divisional Round game.

"I don’t know. Doing everything I can to get out there as soon as possible, as soon as they clear me," Tannehill said. "Right now, it’s tough to say." Tannehill returned to practice Friday but has already been ruled out for the Wild Card Round. He still has a few hurdles to get through even if Miami advances. Tannehill could ultimately need surgery after the season.
Jan 6 - 5:30 PM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday.

Well that's something. Tannehill is obviously making progress but he's already been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game. If the Dolphins advance, Tannehill would have a reasonable chance to suit up next week against New England. Matt Moore will start his fourth straight game Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Jan 6 - 1:17 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase decided Ryan Tannehill (knee) "needed more time" after watching him move around on Wednesday.

"I think we're close, but we're still in that gray area," said Gase. Tannehill hasn't been cleared to practice yet and has already been ruled out for Sunday's playoff opener at Pittsburgh. Even if the Dolphins advance, a return this postseason is probably a pipe dream for Tannehill.
