Ryan Tannehill Injury Updates

The Dolphins have traded QB Ryan Tannehill and a 2019 6th-round pick to the Titans for 2020 4th-rounder and a 2019 7th-rounder. Tennessee also agreed to a new 1-year, $7 million deal with Tannehill that can climb to $12 million with incentives. Tannehill never ascended beyond mediocrity in Miami and figures to open as Marcus Mariota's backup in Tennessee. But Mariota's leash is tightening after a stagnant and injury-filled 4 seasons so far. The Fins, meanwhile, are left with Jake Rudock and Luke Falk at QB. We'll see what they add to the position over the next couple of months.

Dolphins HC Adam Gase confirmed on Monday that QB Brock Osweiler will start Thursday night's game against the Texans. QB Ryan Tannehill remains without a timetable for return from his shoulder injury. Osweiler has been surprisingly solid over the past 2 weeks, completing 67% of his passes, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt and tossing 5 TDs vs. 2 INTs. Still, he's no better than a low-end QB2 for Week 8.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's availability for today's game against the Bears is "up in the air." He's dealing with a throwing shoulder injury -- and we've heard whispers that it's an AC joint sprain. Tannehill was a full-go in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but limited Friday. We'll get his official status by noon ET, but he shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups. Miami would be forced to turn to QB Brock Osweiler if Tannehill can't go.

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. Tannehill remains a low-upside QB2, but his availability is good news for Miami's skill-position guys.

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. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that the team is "concerned" about Tannehill's injury. We should learn more over the next 24 hours. Tannehill is no more than a QB2 in fantasy football, but his loss would hurt WRs Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. Matt Moore is Miami's backup.

Facing Arizona, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill completed 15 of 20 passes for 195 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. He played well despite rain falling for most of the day in Miami. The bad news is he suffered a potentially serious knee (ACL) injury after taking a hit from DL Calais Campbell in the 2nd half. Veteran backup Matt Moore finished Sunday’s game and completed 3 of 5 attempts for 47 yards. He'd only be worth a look in 2-QB leagues for upcoming road games at the Jets and Bills.

Dolphins insider Andy Slater reports that QB Ryan Tannehill tore his ACL in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He returned to the sideline after the injury and was visibly upset, so the report makes sense. Tannehill's 2016 season is over, and he'll have just about 9 months to get ready for the start of the 2017 campaign. QB Matt Moore will take over for Miami the rest of the way. He completed 3 of 5 passes for 47 yards in relief of Tannehill today, leading his squad to a game-winning FG. Moore is a respectable NFL backup and might not be a huge downgrade from Tannehill.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill suffered what appeared to be a left knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He headed to the locker room with trainers with a slight limp. We'll update Tannehill's status when we learn more.

Dolphins HC Dan Campbell labeled QB Ryan Tannehill "day to day" with an ankle injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Colts.  "My gut says he should be ready to go" for this weekend's game against the Patriots.  A banged-up Tannehill won't be a QB1 option for that one, though.  He's totaled just 3 TDs in his last 4 games.

According to the Miami Herald, the deep ball connection between Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and WR Mike Wallace has been “comparable” to their 2013 showing. The duo hooked up on just 6 of 36 targets that traveled 20+ yards downfield last year. A lack of progress is discouraging, but remember that Wallace recently returned from a minor hamstring injury. We’re also a month away from Week 1, so there’s time to improve. Wallace looks like a low-end WR2 in fantasy.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill left in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game with a leg injury.  He went down awkwardly on Buffalo's 6th sack of the day.  QB Matt Moore has entered for Miami.

Update: Tannehill re-entered on Miami's next possession.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace returned to the field Wednesday after missing more than a week with a groin injury.  He promptly caught his 1st long TD from QB Ryan Tannehill all camp.  Wallace said he expects to play in Friday's game against Jacksonville.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill's MRI revealed no structural damage.  He's dealing with a bone bruise on his knee and a deep thigh bruise.  Neither injury is a major concern.  Tannehill said he could have re-entered Sunday's game against the Jets, and it sounds like he has a good chance of playing against the Colts this weekend.  We'll update his status throughout the week.

According to team beat writer Ben Volin, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill suffered a bruised quad and hyper-extended knee in Sunday’s win over the Jets. It’s a minor pair of injuries. Tanny said after the game that he could have returned in an emergency situation. He simply wasn’t needed with Miami on cruise control all game long. Expect Tannehill to return for a Week 9 matchup with Indianapolis. If not, QB Matt Moore would start again. He was solid against the Jets today, going 11 of 19 for 131 yards with 1 TD and 0 INTs.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill limped off the field in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets with an apparent quad injury.  He was getting stretched out by trainers on the sidelines.  QB Matt Moore is currently in the game for Miami.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (thumb) is active and starting against the Bengals today.  He popped up on the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice.  The thumb shouldn't be an issue today, but the rookie remains just a low-end option in 2-QB leagues.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill popped up on the injury report on Friday with a thumb.  It's reportedly the thumb on his throwing hand.  Tannehill put in a full practice on Friday, though, and is listed as probable for this weekend's game against the Bengals.  That would suggest the thumb isn't a concern, but it's something keep an eye on.  Tannehill remains just a low-end option in 2-QB leagues.
