Dolphins' Tannehill to have season-ending surgery

Share

Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, the person said. But it all changed really quickly last week, when Tannehill went down untouched during practice.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill talks with Jay Cutler during warmups before pre-season game against Atlanta Falcons at Hard Rock Stadium.

Tannehill won the No. 1 job for Miami's opener in his rookie season of 2012 and made 77 consecutive starts before his injury last season.

Tannehill and the Dolphins elected rehabilitation and stem-cell treatment instead of surgery, and it seemed to be a good decision.

Coach Adam Gase believes Tannehill can and will help new quarterback Jay Cutler adjust to his projected role as starter. It was reinjured August 3, on a noncontact play, when Tannehill crumbled to the ground while scrambling in practice.
