Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (knee, I.R.) will "absolutely" be ready for the start of next season.

Tannehill made the decision to undergo season-ending ACL surgery on Friday. "He's got a good plan mapped out," said Gase. Tannehill's knee injury wasn't as severe as the one suffered by Teddy Bridgewater last summer, and it's reasonable to expect him back at full strength for the start of 2018. With Jay Cutler under center, Miami will feature a run-heavy scheme with Jay Ajayi as the focal point.

Dolphins placed QB Ryan Tannehill on injured reserve on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

After opting not to undergo surgery last offseason with a partially torn ACL, Tannehill is choosing the opposite this time around. He will likely be ready to go for training camp next season. Jay Cutler will take over as the starting quarterback. Cutler has supported numerous top-24 fantasy receivers in his career, so fantasy players should not bump Dolphins skill players too far down their boards.
Aug 12 - 9:23 AM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Ryan Tannehill (ACL) will undergo knee surgery and be placed on injured reserve.

Tannehill avoided surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but it is not surprising he is opting to get the knee repaired this time after re-tearing the same ACL last week. Going under the knife this early means he should be a full-go for camp next season. With Tannehill done for the year, Miami will turn to Jay Cutler as their starter.
Aug 11 - 8:09 PM

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill's left ACL is again partially torn.

A source told the Herald that a pre-training camp exam on both of Tannehill's knees showed his left knee was "stronger and in better shape" than his right knee, despite last year's partial ACL tear. Unfortunately, the joint simply wasn't stable enough, and Tannehill re-tore the ACL (partially) in Thursday's practice. The Dolphins have not yet determined whether Tannehill will undergo ACL surgery, but we would be surprised if he didn't.
Aug 6 - 2:45 PM

Coach Adam Gase offered no update on the status of Ryan Tannehill (knee) on Friday morning.

While leaving the practice field, Gase said the team has yet to decide its course of action for Tannehill. Miami plans to be thorough with this one, seeking more than just one or two opinions. Both surgery and rest/rehab remain options. As for now, Gase said Matt Moore is the quarterback while Tannehill is out.
Aug 4 - 10:56 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins now "fear" Ryan Tannehill (knee) will require season-ending surgery, but have yet to make a final decision.

The Dolphins have gone from "not ruling out" surgery to "fearing" it in three hours. Tannehill didn't fully tear any ligaments, but appears to have aggravated his partially torn ACL and MCL from last December. Rather than again opting for rest and rehab — which he could do for 6-8 weeks — it appears Tannehill will need to go under the knife. If that's the case, Matt Moore will step in as starter, though Jay Cutler could be an option. Free agent Colin Kaepernick could also be brought in as a backup. We should get final word on Tannehill's status Friday.
Aug 3 - 10:24 PM

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports the Dolphins haven't ruled out season-ending surgery for Ryan Tannehill (knee).

Tannehill avoided "full tears" on Thursday's practice fall, but team officials haven't ruled out "a procedure that would fully repair" the ACL and MCL Tannehill partially tore last December. The team is still awaiting further test results. It's possible Tannehill and the Dolphins won't fully trust his troublesome left knee until it has been surgically repaired.
Aug 3 - 7:20 PM

The Washington Post confirms there was no "significant damage" found in Ryan Tannehill's MRI, but reports there is still "further evaluation needed."

Per reporter Mark Maske, the "situation is still uncertain." The Miami Herald called Tannehill's MRI "inconclusive." Structural damage wasn't detected on first blush, but Tannehill has at least a hyperextension. It's possible something more nefarious is still discovered with further testing.
Aug 3 - 5:26 PM

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) has avoided structural damage.

Kinkhabwala reports Tannehill could still miss time, but that the worst-case scenarios have been avoided. Tannehill's troublesome left knee buckled in non-contact fashion on Thursday morning. Tannehill suffered an ACL injury last December, but opted against surgery. Tannehill's knee could turn into a looming specter until he gets a few healthy regular season games under his belt.
Aug 3 - 4:04 PM

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill (left knee) is dealing with a hyperextension at minimum, and could have PCL damage.

If you thought the news couldn't get worse, the team has yet to rule out a torn ACL. Tannehill's MRI results should come in sometime Thursday afternoon. Even in a best-case scenario, Tannehill seems likely to miss multiple weeks.
Aug 3 - 1:44 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins are "concerned" about Ryan Tannehill's left knee injury.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero adds the team is "fearing the worst." The report is notable both because it suggests the injury is serious and because it confirms the issue is with Tannehill's left knee, the same knee in which he partially tore his ACL late last season. Tannehill's setback came when he stepped awkwardly while scrambling out of bounds in Thursday's practice.
Aug 3 - 11:05 AM

Ryan Tannehill exited Thursday's practice with a non-contact leg injury.

Tannehill reportedly stepped awkwardly while going out of bounds on a scramble. He was able to walk with the trainers into the locker room, but he was reportedly moving "gingerly." Tannehill is wearing a brace on his left knee after partially tearing his ACL late last season. It is unclear if this injury is to the same leg or serious, but any setback is notable.
Aug 3 - 9:26 AM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) said he plans to keep using his feet as a weapon.

Coming off a partially torn ACL late last season, Tannehill moved well during offseason practices despite wearing a brace, and coach Adam Gase has said he looks "normal." He plans to continue wearing a brace in the regular season. It would not be surprising if Tannehill, who has averaged over 200 yards rushing a season throughout his career, ran a little less moving forward. At the helm of a limited passing offense, Tannehill is only a factor in two-quarterback formats.
Jul 27 - 11:32 AM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker wrote Ryan Tannehill moved well during offseason practices despite a brace on his left knee.

Tannehill did not require surgery after partially tearing his ACL late last season, but he will be forced to wear a brace. That brace could be a concern for a player who has averaged over 200 yards rushing a season throughout his career, but the Dolphins have consistently said the quarterback "looks normal." Relegated to an Alex Smith-esque game manager role last season, Tannehill is only a factor in two quarterback leagues.
