Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill exits practice after non-contact leg injury (updated)

ESPN - [Full Article]

Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered what appeared to be a left leg injury Thursday and was taken off the practice field.

Tannehill fell awkwardly on the sideline while scrambling and didn't get up. Trainers looked at his left knee, which has a brace on it, before taking the quarterback inside. Tannehill suffered a sprained ACL and MCL in the same knee last season and didn't require surgery.

UPDATE: Aditi Kinkhabwala reports, "Sigh of relief for Dolphins. Member of org says no structural damage for Ryan Tannehill, knee same now as in AM."

UPDATE: @ProFootballDoc David Chao writes, "It appears Tannehill won’t be able to avoid ACL reconstruction surgery this time. Whether the ACL is 'partially' torn is not the issue. The knee has proven to be unstable. Nine times out of 10, partial ACL ends up unstable and needing surgery."

Fantasy Impact: 

Tannehill may still need to have surgery if the doctors determine the knee is too unstable to play. We'll wait to hear his short-term prognosis before updating our draft rankings. Matt Moore is the primary backup in Miami. Stay tuned.
