Tannehill (knee) is recovering from surgery and is anticipated to return to the Dolphins' facility to rehab in the upcoming days, Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill is already going through the early stages of rehab, but he'll do with the help of Miami's medical staff in the coming days. The quarterback's knee injury is anticipated to sideline him for around eight to 12 months. With him out, Jay Cutler will start for the Dolphins this season.

Tannehill is slated to undergo reconstructive knee surgery Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Based on typical injury rehab timetables, Tannehill is probably looking at a return to the field in 10-to-12 months following his reconstructive surgery. With those parameters in mind, the QB could be ready to go by the start on training camp in 2018, or not long after. Added clarity on that front will arrive in time, but what is already known is that Tannehill will not play this season, which paves the way for newcomer Jay Cutler to helm the team's offense in 2017.

Tannehill (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Saturday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After taking the time to consider all of his options, Tannehill evidently opted to undergo season-ending surgery to repair the partially torn ACL in his left knee. Fortunately, head coach Adam Gase said he "absolutely" expects the quarterback to be ready in time for the 2018 campaign. The freshly signed Jay Cutler is expected to take over as the starting QB in Tannehill's place, with Matt Moore staying put in the No. 2 role.

The Dolphins are expected to place Tannehill on injured reserve after upcoming reconstructive surgery on his left knee, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill had been weighing all his options with regard to the partially torn ACL in his left knee, but after attempting a recovery that included stem-cell treatment and rest, surgery is likely the best option for his long-term health. Since re-injuring himself on Aug. 3, the Dolphins coaxed Jay Cutler out of retirement to serve as their primary signal-caller, which will extend until the end of the season with Tannehill's own campaign over before it started.

According to coach Adam Gase, Tannehill (knee) has not yet decided on whether he'll have surgery, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill's likelihood of going under the knife appeared to increase upon Miami's signing of fellow starting-caliber quarterback Jay Cutler on Sunday, but a final determination is yet to be made regarding his recovery method. If Tannehill indeed opts for the surgical route, he'd effectively be ruled out of the entire upcoming campaign. His other option would be to simply rehab his partially torn ACL, which would likely coincide with a 6-to-8 week absence. As it stands, it's unknown when Tannehill will make a decision on how he wishes to repair his injury.

Miami's decision to sign Jay Cutler suggests Tannehill (knee) likely will have season-ending surgery, NFL Network's James Palmer reports.

EDGE Analysis

At last check, Tannehill was still gathering information while trying to decide between season-ending surgery and taking another shot at rehabbing his partially torn ACL without any procedure. The latter approach likely would still require an absence of six-to-eight weeks, which would rule him out for at least the first couple games of the season. At a reported $10 million for one year, Cutler would be an oddly expensive insurance policy if the Dolphins were actually expecting Tannehill to play this season.

Tannehill and the Dolphins are still evaluating their options to treat his injured left knee, Dave Hyde of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Speaking on Tannehill's situation, coach Adam Gase said, "Everything's on the table right now. We're going to talk to a lot of people. There's no timetable. Right now, Matt (Moore) is our quarterback. We'll see where we go from there because I've got to figure out what's going on with Ryan, and we'll make decisions after that."

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill, whose 2016 campaign was cut short by a partially torn left ACL, unfortunately had the same knee buckle in Thursday's practice. Although Tannehill has since undergone an MRI, the exact nature of his injury remains unclear, but news surrounding his treatment options has surfaced. The quarterback could either opt to rest for 6-to-8 weeks before attempting a return during the regular season, or he could go ahead and have season-ending surgery. It's worth noting that Tannehill decided not to undergo surgery following last season's injury, instead preferring stem-cell treatment. Now, Tannehill is once again confronted with a decision over surgery, leaving he and the Dolphins in careful consideration of his situation. With Tannehill slated to miss significant time either way, Matt Moore is being prepared as Miami's starting quarterback heading into Week 1.

Tannehill may require season-ending surgery on his injured left knee, though no official decision has been made, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill's 2016 season was cut short by a knee injury and it appears that his upcoming campaign may unfortunately be in jeopardy as well. The veteran quarterback will undergo further evaluations in the coming days, but at the moment it appears his options include season-ending surgery or resting for 6-to-8 weeks with hopes of returning to full health during the regular season. The Dolphins haven't made an official decisions with regards to Tannehill's injury, but the current outlook is bleak in South Beach.

In the wake of an earlier report suggesting that Tannehill avoided structural damage in his left knee, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald relays that the QB's MRI on Thursday initially proved inconclusive in terms of revealing the full extent of Tannehill's injury.

EDGE Analysis

Per Salguero, Tannehill's MRI requires further scrutiny, a scenario that neither confirms or refutes the previously-noted "no structural damage" outcome. While additional info is gathered/reported, we'll continue to view Tannehill as day-to-day, with the caveat that his injury prognosis could potentially worsen.

The knee injury Tannehill suffered Thursday reportedly did not result in any structural damage, Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tannehill's knee did buckle during Thursday's practice, but he appears to have avoided a worst-case scenario. The QB could still miss some time as a result of Thursday's injury scare, but at this stage we'll consider him day-to-day unless evidence to the contrary surfaces.
