The Miami Herald - [Full Article]

On Ryan Tannehill’s status (sprained knee, bruised quad), Joe Philbin was predictably non-committal. He said on the plane ride home from New York, Tannehill expressed optimism about being able to play next Sunday at the Colts.

Is Philbin optimistic? “I don’t know much, but it was a good conversation on the plane.” Asked if snaps might be altered in practice to give more work to third-stringer Pat Devlin, he said: "It's too early to predict what's going to happen."

Would Philbin be inclined to play him Sunday at Indianapolis if he isn’t 100 percent? “You have to make a decision: Can the guy function and do the job asked of him? Either he can do the job or he can’t. You would love the guy to be 100 percent.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Matt Moore would get the start if Tannehill can't play and the Dolphins have three-straight pass-friendly matchups in the next three weeks, according to our SOS charts.
