The Miami Herald reports the "expectation" is that Ryan Tannehill (knee) will be ready for the start of the Dolphins' offseason program in April.

Tannehill is roughly five months removed from "partially" tearing his left ACL and undergoing surgery. It's hard to believe he will be full-go for OTAs — the Dolphins have no reason to be that aggressive — but it's looking like he could be 100 percent for training camp. With Tannehill sidelined, the Dolphins' offense took a major step back in 2017.

Coach Adam Gase said he envisions Ryan Tannehill being "our starting quarterback" in 2018.

Tannehill missed all of 2017 after needing a second knee surgery on his ACL, but the Dolphins aren't openly concerned. Jay Cutler will be a free agent and won't be back in Miami. Tannehill is likely going to miss spring workouts but should be ready to roll by training camp. The Dolphins will have to figure out his weaponry with Jarvis Landry set to be a free agent and Julius Thomas certain to be cut. The Dolphins also need to start taking the guard positions seriously.

Ryan Tannehill's ACL operation will take place on Thursday.

Tannehill will require 10-12 months of rehab. Now 29 and coming off two ACL injuries in eight months, Tannehill is due a guaranteed $17.47 million in 2018.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Aug 3, 2017 01:44:00 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.
