The Dolphins want Tannehill (knee) to stay in the pocket more often next season, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dolphins may feel they got off lucky in that Tannehill does not require reconstructive surgery on his knee. The knee isn't expected to hurt his mobility going forward so Tannehill won't be a sitting target in the pocket. The Dolphins are still committed to Tannehill as their quarterback of the present and the future.

After passing what NFL.com describes as "a battery of tests" on his left ACL and Grade 2 MCL sprain, Tannehill is slated to be available for the Dolphins' upcoming offseason program.

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, the Miami Herald confirms that Tannehill will not require reconstructive surgery to address the knee issue that cost the starting QB the Dolphins' last three regular-season games in 2016, as well as the team's postseason loss to the Steelers. While Tannehill is expected to utilize a knee brace throughout the 2017 season, the report adds that barring any setbacks, the signal-caller is in line to handle a full workload by the start of training camp this summer. Tannehill may, however, be limited to some degree during the squad's offseason practices leading up to that.

Tannehill's (knee) advanced progress through rehab makes it unlikely that he'll require reconstructive surgery this offseason, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill sustained a partial ACL tear and MCL sprain on Dec. 11, but has since improved his knee's stability through many strength-focused exercises. In fact, Tannehill's knee is doing so well that he's already able to include playing basketball as part of his rehab. While that has proven his knee's ability to tolerate sudden movements, Tannehill still has a checkup MRI scheduled for Monday, at which point his outlook could be updated. As it stands, the quarterback is not believed to need full ACL surgery, but it's still possible that Tannehill could travel to Germany to undergo platelet-rich plasma therapy to promote further healing. Whether that happens or not, there's currently confidence that Tannehill's knee will be stable enough for him to be ready to start next season.

The Dolphins still haven't decided whether or not Tannehill will need knee surgery, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's been six weeks since Tannehill suffered the knee injury, an injury they are calling a sprain to his ACL and MCL. While it's not unusual for a decision to take a week or two as doctors wait for the swelling to diminish, a month and a half seems a bit out of the ordinary. As long as Tannehill doesn't need an ACL reconstruction, the additional wait time shouldn't change his availability for the 2017 season opener but if reconstruction is needed then all bets would be off as to whether or not Tannehill would be ready for Week 1.

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.
