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

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.’”

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).
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.

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 HC Adam Gase said wide receiver DeVante Parker has actually had injuries to both hamstrings and he did not dispute the notion that Parker may not play this week. Gase has not decided who Miami’s third receiver would be.
“It’s tough,” Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill said Monday. “You’d like to have the guy on the field. He’s a heck of a talent.”
