Unfortunately for himself and his team, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s 2017 season is officially over before it could begin. After news came out last week that Tannehill had suffered a significant knee injury in practice, the Palm Beach Post’s Joe Schad is reporting that Tannehill will need to have season-ending surgery:

The former Texas A&M star is coming off a nice 2016 season, in which he completed 67 percent of his passes and had a 19:12 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
In his place, the Dolphins signed another former SEC star: Vanderbilt’s Jay Cutler. The former Commodores QB was convinced to give up his new job as an analyst for FOX Sports in exchange for another shot in the league.
