Coach Adam Gase confirmed Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is fine and will start Week 15 against the Vikings.
Tannehill missed a bit of time in the Miami Miracle win over the Patriots last week and appeared a bit hobbled at times. But he's good enough to go against the Vikings with the 7-6 Fins still in the playoff hunt. Even so, Tannehill will not be a recommended fantasy play at Minnesota this Sunday. Dec 12 - 2:27 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is "sore" but "walking around."

Tannehill missed time in Miami's win over the Patriots because of an ankle injury and was clearly hobbled after he returned. It sounds like that remains the case on Monday, but Gase did not seem concerned about his quarterback's availability for this week's matchup with the Vikings. Even coming off back-to-back three-touchdown games, Tannehill will not be an exciting streamer in that spot.
Dec 10 - 11:43 AM

Ryan Tannehill completed 14-of-19 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Miami's Week 14 upset of New England.

He added one rush for 13 yards. Tannehill suffered a painful ankle injury late in the second quarter and was briefly replaced by Brock Osweiler. Tannehill returned to play the entire second half despite hobbling around the field in noticeable discomfort. He hit Kenny Stills and Brice Butler for touchdowns and was credited with No. 3 on Kenyan Drake's last-play lateral score in Miami's 34-33 upset victory. Expect Tannehill to miss practice time ahead of Week 15's showdown at Minnesota.
Dec 9 - 4:49 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 16-of-24 passes for 137 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Bills.

Despite taking some big hits, Tannehill started out this game hot, completing 4-of-5 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive. He mostly struggled the rest of the first half, but he was able to take advantage of a Bills turnover just before the break, finding Kenyan Drake in the flat for a three-yard score. Miami’s offense did absolutely nothing in the third quarter, and Tannehill followed up a Josh Allen interception with one of his own. He quickly bounced back, however, leading a touchdown drive to give Miami the lead. He capped that march with a dangerous throw to the back of the end zone, but Kenny Stills bailed him out with a great play. This was not a great game from Tannehill, but he did enough for the win. He will be a weak two-quarterback league option next week against the Patriots.
Dec 2 - 4:24 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 17-of-25 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' 27-24, Week 12 loss to the Colts.

Making his first start since Week 5, Tannehill added three rushes for 14 additional yards. The good news is that Tannehill's 33-yard first quarter strike to Kenyan Drake was the Dolphins' first offensive touchdown in 27 possessions. The bad news is, coach Adam Gase treated Tannehill like he was Sam Darnold in crunch time, calling unimaginative, horizontal plays as the Dolphins watched a 24-14 lead disappear. Tannehill's second score was a 74-yard jump ball against CB Pierre Desir where Leonte Carroo did most of the work. Although better than Brock Osweiler, Tannehill is one of the league's most limited regular starters. He will struggle for QB2 value in Week 13 against the Bills.
Nov 25 - 7:30 PM

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' final injury report for Week 12 against the Colts.

Tannehill will be back under center this week after missing the last five games with a right shoulder injury. His return pushes Brock Osweiler back to the bench. Tannehill is best viewed as a back-end QB2 against Indy.
Nov 23 - 1:08 PM

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Tannehill is still dealing with some soreness, but he's going to start Sunday's game with the Colts. Tannehill's return isn't much of an upgrade to Miami's offense.
Nov 21 - 4:12 PM

Ryan Tannehill admits he is still experiencing pain in his shoulder but believes he can make "all the throws."

"I feel really good," Tannehill claimed. "Not quite 100 percent, but I feel confident and have made all the throws I’m going to need to make over the course of a game." It doesn't sound like Tannehill is particularly close to 100 percent after experiencing a setback a few weeks ago, but the Dolphins are desperate to move on from Brock Osweiler and keep their faint playoff hopes alive. Tannehill will be a barely-there QB2 against the Colts. Daily Slant: It's safe to say Tannehill will be low-owned in DFS this week, and for good reason: He's coming off injury without two of his receivers. For his price, though, he does have some tournament appeal as he'll likely be playing from behind as nine point underdogs in Indy. If he can rush for a score and throw for one or two TD's, he could be a GPP winner at miniscule ownership stacked with a couple of his also very cheap WR's.
Nov 20 - 4:43 PM

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will return as Dolphins starter for Week 12 against the Colts.

It will be Tannehill's first start since Week 5. The Dolphins have lost Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant in the interim but regained DeVante Parker. Brock Osweiler's play has predictably fallen off a cliff after some initial competence, so Tannehill's return will be quite welcome as the Dolphins try to stay alive in the AFC playoff race. Managing games before going down, Tannehill will be a fringe QB2 with his banged up supporting cast.
Nov 20 - 3:11 PM

The Miami Herald believes the "smart money" is on Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) returning for Week 12.

Tannehill did an extensive amount of throwing during Tuesday's practice. Coach Adam Gase is expected to update his status Tuesday afternoon. Brock Osweiler has predictably gone all the way off the rails in Tannehill's absence. Tannehill will be returning to an injury-depleted supporting cast but will still be a sizable upgrade.
Nov 20 - 1:47 PM

Ryan Tannehill ramped up his throwing program during the bye week.

Coach Adam Gase said Tannehill made five- to fifty-yard stationary target throws during the bye week and looked normal doing it. Still, Gase would not commit to Tannehill playing or even practicing this week. Facing off against the Colts in a game which shockingly has playoff ramifications, the Dolphins would get a big boost if Tannehill is ready to go.
Nov 19 - 11:47 AM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) threw without pain on Sunday.

It was the first time Tannehill has thrown in a week. "It seemed like it went well," Gase said. "It’s not like he’s out there throwing 60-yard throws. They have a progression of how they want to do it. They said it was a good first step and he felt good. So that’s a positive." Miami reportedly hopes Tannehill is able to return following the bye, but that is anything but a given.
Nov 13 - 9:33 AM

Coach Adam Gase said the Dolphins are targeting Week 12 for Ryan Tannehill's (shoulder) return.

Tannehill was already ruled out for Sunday. The Dolphins are on bye next week, so there's hope he'll be back after that. Tannehill has resumed throwing with trainers, but there hasn't been much progress with his capsule injury. This is the first real timetable the Dolphins have given on Tannehill since he's been sidelined. It's far from a lock Tannehill's ready to return in Week 12.
Nov 7 - 2:23 PM

Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Tannehill was never expected to play. There hasn't been much progress with Tannehill's shoulder injury. He remains out indefinitely.
Nov 7 - 12:35 PM

Speaking about Ryan Tannehill's (shoulder) health on Monday, coach Adam Gase classified the situation as "weird."

Tannehill has apparently been "inconsistent throwing with trainers." He is having "good days and bad days," as is the cliché. Tannehill sounds far from certain to return after the Dolphins' Week 11 bye. He probably should have been placed on injured reserve when first hurt.
