Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee, out) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is out for Week 18. Tannehill’s return to practice is encouraging, but it doesn’t look like he’s going to play this week. Matt Moore will get the start. He has targeted Kenny Stills on 23% of his pass attempts since taking over for Tannehill in Week 14.

Door possibly open for Dolphin QB Ryan Tannehill return Week 17

When Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury a little over two weeks ago, his situation was obvious enough for coach Adam Gase to publicly rule him out of not only the next game, but the one after that.

With Miami hosting the Patriots in six days, however, Tannehill’s status isn’t clear-cut. While it appears highly unlikely from the outside that he has any shot at playing Sunday, Gase declined to make that definitive.

“I don’t know yet,” he said when asked if Tannehill is out against New England. “I don’t know where the doctors have him right now or how he feels. I haven’t really asked. I just tell them, ‘Once you guys have something different, come talk to me.’”

Dolphins to sign QB T.J. Yates

Sun Sentinel - [Full Article]

The Dolphins plan to sign veteran quarterback T.J. Yates to serve as the backup to Matt Moore, according to an ESPN report, apparently bypassing rookie quarterback Brandon Doughty for the second-team role.

A tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Dolphins will soon sign Yates, who tore his ACL (anterior cruicate ligament) last December while playing for Houston.

Fantasy Impact:

Yates, a five-year veteran who hasn’t played since his injury, made two starts and four appearances for the Texans in 2015. He ended the season 28 of 57 for 370 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. He had a passer rating of 80.3.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has ACL/MCL sprain

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Miami Dolphins received some good and surprising injury news Monday when quarterback Ryan Tannehill was diagnosed with an ACL and MCL sprain in his left knee, head coach Adam Gase confirmed.

According to Gase, surgery is not required but the team still isn't sure if Tannehill will return this season. Backup quarterback Matt Moore will take over the offense this week as Miami (8-5) prepares for the New York Jets (4-9).

Fantasy Impact:

The Dolphins were bracing for the worst Sunday evening after Tannehill was hit low late in the third quarter by Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Calais Campbell. Tannehill left the locker room on crutches.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill believed to have torn ACL

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is believed to have torn his ACL during the third quarter of Sunday's 26-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals and is out for the remainder of the season, two sources with knowledge of the injury told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Courtney Fallon. He'll have an MRI to determine if there is other damage, Rapoport and Fallon added.

Fantasy Impact:

With an increased focus on the passing game in the last month, the Dolphins suddenly turn to a veteran who once threw for close to 2,500 yards and 16 touchdowns in 13 games under center in 2011 in Matt Moore. But at age 32, Moore is now a veteran backup at best, and he hadn't seen significant playing time since 2012 before entering the game. It could mean more focus on the run game with Jay Ajayi and perhaps Damien Williams.

Dolphins QB Matt Moore (right shoulder, questionable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 14.

At the moment, the Dolphins are in a shaky situation at quarterback behind Ryan Tannehill. The next two players in line, Zac Dysert and Brandon Doughty, have never played a regular-season game.

The man who can change that is veteran back-up Matt Moore, who has been out since sustaining a concussion Aug. 19 at Dallas. Moore has not been cleared to return to practice yet, but is progressing. Miami believes he’ll be back in time for the season opener.

“He looks like everything’s on track,” coach Adam Gase said. “I know he’s itching to start getting back out there and doing things, but obviously we have the procedure that we follow, which for us makes everything nice and clean. We know where we’re at on that procedure.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore suffered a concussion in Miami's 41-14 preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys, and must now undergo the NFL's concussion protocol program to return to practice.

The hit occurred late in the second-quarter when a scrambling Moore, who has served as Ryan Tannehill's primary backup since 2012, clearly began his slide at the end of a 9-yard run. Cowboys linebacker James Morris drove at Moore’s helmet, and hit Moore in the head with his shoulder. Moore's head violently bounced off the field turf and the nine-year veteran stayed on the ground for a couple minutes while Morris was flagged for unnecessary roughness.
