Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill is headed to injured reserve for the 2017 season after making the decision to have reconstructive surgery on his injured left knee, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.
Tannehill waiting for over a week before the injury to decide, leaving Miami fans to turn their lonely eyes to former Bears QB Jay Cutler, who signed on with the team after the injury.
PFT: ‘Tannehill suffered a partially torn ACL in the same knee late last season, but did not have surgery and received full clearance to return to action this offseason. There was talk about taking a similar approach after he hurt the knee again last week, but Cutler’s arrival was a pretty clear sign that the Dolphins expected Tannehill would be getting his ACL repaired this time around. Tannehill is signed through 2020 and has a salary of $17.475 million for the 2018 season with $5.25 million becoming fully guaranteed in March.’
