This was the news the Miami Dolphins were holding back from the public. The franchise knew this initially when Ryan Tannehill got hurt.
That’s why Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was pressuring Jay Cutler to come out of retirement. He eventually did and spurred a job with Fox Sports for a one-year, $13 million deal.
Tannehill will undergo season-ending surgery. As a result of the operation, he will miss the entire 2017 season.
Cutler will take Tannehill’s starting spot despite Gase saying it’s an open competition. When Tannehill was healthy last year, he was a huge offensive contributor — and helped guide the team to the playoffs.
Tannehill will have the cut done on his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He initially suffered a partial tear of his ACL late in the 2016 season — and back-up Matt Moore was put into starting duty as the signal-caller.
He missed the final three games of the regular season and the team’s Wild Card game at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Dolphins lost the contest.
He could have had surgery in the off-season. However, he opted for a different procedure, as he had stem-cell therapy and rehab over the knife.
Tannehill was actually injured during practice last week. Depending on his rehab, which could be as little as six months, he could have a lot of time to prepare for the 2018 season.
