The Dolphins have not ruled out the possibility that Tannehill could undergo offseason surgery to repair his left knee, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill sprained both his ACL and MCL back on Dec. 11 and though the QB practiced some this past Friday, he was unable to rally in time to join the Dolphins' playoff push. As the team's offseason gets underway, doctors are in the process of evaluating how to manage the next steps in Tannehill's recovery. A procedure of some sort thus remains a possibility for the QB at this time and in such a scenario, his participation in the team's offseason program could be impacted.

Tannehill (knee) passed for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, while also rushing 39 times for 164 yards and another score in 13 games played this season.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill endured a rocky transition into new coach Adam Gase's system, accounting for seven total touchdowns and seven interceptions through Miami's first five games, which included merely one Dolphins win. However, after that stretch, Tannehill showed strong improvement over the second half of the campaign, registering a quarterback rating of at least 97.4 in five of his subsequent eight contests, coinciding with seven victories. Unfortunately, he suffered a hit to his left knee during Week 14, leaving him with slight tears in his MCL and ACL. That injury kept him sidelined for the remainder of the regular season, and despite returning as a limited practice participant last Friday, he couldn't play in Sunday's playoff loss to the Steelers. Now with a full offseason to return to health, Tannehill will look to build on the back half of this season, which overall included a career-best completion percentage (67.1) and yards-per-attempt average (7.70), with a developing stable of offensive weapons next term.

Tannehill (knee) was a limited participant in practice Friday, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The session was Tannehill's first since suffering what the report describes as "slight tears in the MCL and ACL of his left knee" back on Dec. 11. While the Dolphins have already indicated that Tannehill is not in line to play Sunday against the Steelers, there's hope that the QB might be an option in the second round of the playoffs in the event that Miami is able to defeat Pittsburgh this weekend.

Tannehill (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Steelers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill had been hopeful for a return to practice this week, but after failing to take the practice field Wednesday, the team decided to make it official and rule out the veteran QB. As a result, Matt Moore will make his fourth straight start. If Moore is able to pull off the upset victory and advance, Tannehill's practice participation the following week would likely be the best indicator of his chances of suiting up in the postseason.

Coach Adam Gase acknowledged Wednesday that "unless something changes drastically in the next few days," Matt Moore will start in place of Tannehill (knee) Sunday against the Steelers, Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill, who was spotted in street clothes during Wednesday's practice sporting a brace on his left knee, will need to get some practice reps in for that prognosis to change, with his next opportunity to do so arriving Thursday. Even if he is able to take the field as the week progresses, Tannehill would still need to demonstrate adequate movement/mobility in order to be a candidate to return to action this weekend.

Tannehill (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Adam Gase did not rule out the possibility of Tannehill starting Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Steelers, but the quarterback's absence from practice Wednesday certainly doesn't help his case. A decision has yet to be made on whether or not he will practice Thursday, so look for more updates to come in the next 24 hours. Until then, Matt Moore will presumably continue as the starter.

Tannehill (knee) could practice this week, leaving a small window of opportunity for the quarterback to start Sunday against the Steelers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Head coach Adam Gase said of the situation, "I need to get a lot of information: I have to see him practice and I have to see him move around and I have to feel really good about it."

EDGE Analysis

Backup Matt Moore has played well in the three games since Tannehill went down with a left knee sprain, throwing eight touchdowns to just three interceptions and leading the Dolphins to a 2-1 record during the stretch. However, the team would prefer to have Tannehill under center, but that option will only be possible if he is cleared for practice this week. Look for more updates to come in the next few days, but until any new information is released, Matt Moore will remain the starter for Sunday.

Tannehill (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Patriots, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill's status was fully expected, as Matt Moore will once again helm the Dolphins' offense in the season finale. Tannehill's potential availability for a postseason game next weekend remains firmly up in the air at this point.

Tannehill (knee) had the cast removed from his leg Friday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill missed his second straight game Saturday due to the ACL an MCL sprain but the team is hopeful that he will return at some point during the playoffs. Tannehill is also no longer using crutches but does have a limp. If Denver loses Sunday, Miami would clinch a playoff spot and have nothing to play for in Week 17. This could give Tannehill almost two more weeks to get his knee healthy for the wildcard game.

Tannehill (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's Week 16 tilt versus the Bills, the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The designation is a mere formality, as Tannehill had already been declared out, with a return date this season still far from a certainty. Matt Moore will once again line up behind center in a pivotal matchup for the Dolphins.
