Fantasy Impact:

The writing was on the wall after the Dolphins signed Jay Cutler. It's a small downgrade for the Miami offense as the skill position players will have to build chemistry with Cutler, who didn't sound all that excited about coming out of retirement.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) 'not out of the woods'

Thursday, August 3, 2017, 5:30pm

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Moore is one of the better backups in the league. In six years with the Dolphins, he has completed 60.6% of his passes with a 7.4 yards per attempt and a 5.4% TD rate. To put his TD rate in context, only eight quarterbacks had a higher rate last season.

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

Thursday, August 3, 2017, 10:51am

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.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill wants to end questions about knee

Monday, July 31, 2017, 11:54am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is already growing tired of addressing questions about his left knee. He was asked throughout spring practices and minicamp and couldn’t avoid the same questions during the first week of training camp.

“The knee is really good. It feels really good,” Tannehill said with a grin. “I haven’t had any changes since the spring. I was a full participant in the spring and still going really well.

“Now we don’t have to address that anymore, right? [Laughter.] We’re good?”

Fantasy Impact:

Tannehill suffered a sprained ACL and MCL that forced him to miss the final four games of last season, which included Miami’s playoff loss to the Steelers. Many were surprised that his knee didn’t require surgery. But the Dolphins and Tannehill decided rehabbing the knee and wearing a brace was best for recovery, the story said.

Dolphins Beat: Perhaps best offense QB Ryan Tannehill has had

Wednesday, July 5, 2017, 10:55am

ESPN - [Full Article]

This core group of skill Dolphin players is stocked with young players who are approaching their prime. That is a strong indication that the future is now for this group as it enters its second season together in head coach Adam Gase’s offense.

It's almost hard to fathom that Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, 28, is entering his sixth year as a starter. On paper, this is the best offense he's had, and now the pressure is on him to match or surpass last year’s production that included going 8-5 as a starter, which was the first winning season of his career.

Related players: Jay Ajayi, Kenny Stills, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, Julius Thomas

Fantasy Impact:

The same group ranked 24th in total offense and 17th in scoring last season, but there were signs something positive was building, the story said. Adding TE Thomas could be huge if he can come close to repeating what he did with Gase in Denver, when he scored 24 TDs in two seasons.

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.

Dolphins to know more about QB Ryan Tannehill Tuesday

Monday, January 2, 2017, 12:55pm

Palm Beach Post - [Full Article]

Miami coach Adam Gase said he’ll have a better idea on quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s availability for a Wild Card playoff game at Pittsburgh by Tuesday.

“I need to know what his movement skills are and the structure of his knee,” Gase said. “Once I get that update I’ll have a better idea. Any time you get a starter back no matter what position that’s what you want. But since Matt (Moore) has been in there he’s done a really good job.”

Fantasy Impact:

Gase is not ready to say if Tannehill can or will practice this week. Tannehill is healing from a sprained ACL and MCL.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 17. Matt Moore gets another start.

Door possibly open for Dolphin QB Ryan Tannehill return Week 17

Monday, December 26, 2016, 7:32pm

Palm Beach Post - [Full Article]

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.’”
