Dolphins place Tannehill on injured list

Dolphins place Tannehill on injured list”

He fills the roster spot vacated by Ryan Tannehill, who was formally placed on injured reserve after deciding to undergo surgery to fix his ACL injury. Tannehill should be back in time to start next year, but for 2017, the Dolphins' season lies in the arm of Jay Cutler. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018.

"It was tougher for me because it's more and more real", Gase said. It's an extremely unfortunate turn of events for Tannehill, who many in the Dolphins organization believed was poised for a big season.

While Tannehill could have chose to rest the knee for six to eight weeks and try to come back from the injury again, surgery was the most viable and likely option.

The Texas A&M product went down with sprained ligaments in the same knee he injured last week resulting in the surgery he'll undergo to fix his ACL.

The poll found that 63% of voters say they don't believe Trump has good leadership skills and that he does not share their values. For the Trump administration, there is nothing but bad news in these poll numbers. "Sixty-two percent (62%) disapprove".

Miami will have a hard decision to make after this season. However, the team has the option to get out of the last three years of Tannehill's contract for just $4.6 million if they choose to do so.

Cutler will now fill in for Tannehill while Matt Moore remains to the backup on the depth chart for the Dolphins. For the optimists out there, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator that season.

Last season, Tannehill threw for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while completing 67.1 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 93.5 over 13 games.
