Report: No structural damage to former Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill’s knee
Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill appears to have avoided a serious, potentially season-ending injury.
An MRI showed there is no structural or ligament damage to Tannehill’s left knee after an injury at training camp on Thursday, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala for the NFL Network. Tannehill was hurt, however, sustaining a hyperextended knee, reports Omar Kelly for the Sun-Sentinel.
There is currently no timetable for Tannehill’s recovery, though he may miss “some time,” per Kinkhabwala.
Many immediately feared the worst for Tannehill when it was reported to be a non-contact injury. It was the same knee that caused Tannehill to miss the final four games last season with a sprained ACL and MCL.
What it means for the Dolphins
Tannehill won’t miss the entire 2017 season, which means there is no need for Miami to panic. Dolphins backup Matt Moore is more than capable of leading the team through the remainder of camp, and even the first few weeks of the season if need be.
