Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill To Undergo Season-Ending ACL Surgery

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill To Undergo Season-Ending ACL Surgery

He fills the roster spot vacated by Ryan Tannehill, who was formally placed on injured reserve after deciding to undergo surgery to fix his ACL injury.

Tannehill, who missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, reinjured it a week into training camp on August 3.

Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season before it got started.

Tannehill suffered the injury while taking a tumble in practice last week. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018. Their worst fears were realized and a week later he has decided the best course of action is reconstructive surgery sometime this week, a decision he should have made last season instead of stem cell therapy and rehab, but hindsight is 20/20.

Tannehill's $17.98 million salary for this year is fully guaranteed.

The decision to opt for surgery came after Tannehill discussed his options with head coach Adam Gase on Friday.

The eighth overall pick in the 2012 draft out of Texas A&M, Tannehill had started every game, 77 in all, until December's injury.

"It was probably tougher for me", Gase said. He's trying to do everything he can to help Jay (Cutler) out and Matt (Moore) has done a great job. He is signed through 2020 at annual salaries of less than $20 million, a reasonable rate for an National Football League starter at his position.
