Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has decided to have his left ACL repaired and will miss the entire season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's not a surprising result, given that Miami paid QB Jay Cutler $10 million shortly after Tannehill re-injured the ligament earlier this month. Tannehill will have more than a year to recover from the surgery before the 2018 season. Cap numbers could leave Miami deciding whether to release the former #1 pick in the offseason, though.
As we continue to await Miami's decision on whether to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo surgery on his left knee, we've at least learned the best possible case for the former 1st-round pick. According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, the non-surgical option is to have Tannehill rest for 6-8 weeks. The regular season kicks off in a little more than 5 weeks, so consider Tannehill a long shot to play in the opener. He'll likely miss at least the first 2-3 games. And, of course, it's still possible he's done for the year.
NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports that tests revealed no structural damage to Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's knee. He's merely dealing with a hyperextension. Tannehill still figures to miss some time, but he should be ready for Week 1. It's extremely good news after what looked like a potentially serious injury this morning.
Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill re-injured his left knee on a non-contact play in Thursday's training-camp practice. That's the knee in which he partially tore his ACL last December.
