Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion, out) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is out for Week 12. With Cutler out, Matt Moore will draw the start. In the five games over the last two seasons in which Matt Moore, Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker all played, Stills accounted for 32.2% of Moore’s passing yards and 44.4% of his touchdowns. Landry (28.1% and 22.2%, respectively) remained involved, while Parker’s role (17.1% and 11.1%, respectively) was reduced. Stills averaged 4.0-78-0.80 on 6.2 targets per game in those five games and added 6-82-2 (9 targets) and 5-65 (10) in two other Matt Moore games this season that Parker missed.
We had Cutler ranked as our No. 27 QB this week, so expect Moore to be in a similar spot once we update our rankings. On the season, Moore has completed 59% of his passes (55-of-93) for 646 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions.
Miami is going back to Matt Moore.
Starting quarterback Jay Cutler left the Dolphins' game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is being evaluated for a concussion, according to the team. Moore replaced Cutler to start the third quarter.
Cutler did throw three interceptions in this game in the first half, so even if he is cleared to return, the Dolphins may opt to stick with Moore.

Starter Jay Cutler was knocked out vs. the New York Jets early in the second half after getting drilled by a hit to his side and landing on his non-throwing shoulder. He went straight to the locker room with what’s being reported as a chest injury.
Cutler will miss 2-3 weeks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. He suffered two cracked ribs. Cutler was putting together a respectable day for the Dolphins, going 12-of-16 with 138 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception before the injury. Moore will take over as the starter.
Ryan Tannehill’s MRI this afternoon to determine the extent of his new left knee injury proved inconclusive, requiring further study, and all options remain on the table per multiple sources.
That means that in the worst-case scenario, it could still be determined that Tannehill needs surgery on his left knee. It could also mean, however, that the quarterback could once again avoid surgery and find a way to get back on the field this season.
Reports that Tannehill basically got a clean bill of health from the MRI are not correct at this time because further examination of that MRI may give a specialist pause.
Tannehill’s MRI result and perhaps even the player will be examined by more doctors before a final determination is made and a plan for recovery is drawn up.

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.

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.’”
