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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 5 - 2:22 PM

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not play this week against the Steelers.

Salguero reports he "definitely" will not play, which is not a surprise after he sat out Wednesday's practice. Matt Moore will continue to start in his place.
Jan 5 - 10:11 AM

Ryan Tannehill (knee) will not practice Wednesday.

Tannehill is making progress from his sprained ACL and MCL and badly wants to play against the Steelers. But he's going to need to get back on the practice field Thursday if there's any chance for him to play Sunday. Playing through a torn ACL is pretty rare, but Philip Rivers did it in 2007. Ultimately, odds are Matt Moore will be under center for the Dolphins this week.
Jan 4 - 12:06 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he will know more about Ryan Tannehill's (knee) availability for this week on Tuesday.

"I need to know what his movement skills are and the structure of his knee," Gase said. "Once I get that update I’ll have a better idea." Tannehill was reportedly spotted walking without a limp through the locker room Monday, and Gase said he (obviously) wants to play. Tannehill likely needs to get in some practice reps early in the week to have a real shot. Matt Moore will continue to start if Tannehill is unable to go.
Jan 2 - 1:15 PM

The Miami Herald believes Ryan Tannehill (knee) could be ready for the Wild Card round.

Specifically, reporter Armando Salguero states "it is not impossible that Tannehill could play then." Per Salguero, Tannehill's MCL is a bigger issue than his ACL. He's trying to get the ligament to "regenerate" in time for a playoff appearance. Matt Moore has played well in Tannehill's absence, but isn't exactly Wally Pipp-ing him. Realistically, Miami needs Tannehill to make anything resembling a run.

Pro Football Talk reports Ryan Tannehill (knee) is now "day-to-day" rather than "week-to-week" after having his cast removed.

Tannehill had been in a stabilizing cast since suffering a Grade II MCL sprain two weeks ago. Tannehill also has a partially torn ACL, which is an injury which will not get better on its own. With Matt Moore playing reasonably well, the Dolphins will have to decide if a less than 100 percent Tannehill gives them a better chance to win in the very near future.
