The Miami Dolphins appear to have avoided the worst-case scenario for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who suffered a non-contact knee injury in Thursday’s practice.
An MRI revealed Tannehill hyperextended his left knee but did sustain any ligament damage, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported. NFL Network also reported that no structural damage was sustained, though the knee did buckle.
Tannehill, who missed the Dolphins’ final four games last season with MCL and ACL injuries in his left knee, took an awkward spill after scrambling towards the sideline during a team drill, which left him on the ground momentarily with teammates surrounding.
“I saw him buckle and go down. There was no contact on the play,” offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen said. “The initial reaction is, ‘OK, next man up.’ That’s football. It’s going to happen somewhere in this season. The game doesn’t stop. You go on to the next play. And then obviously my personal thing is, ‘Boy, I sure hope it isn’t serious.’ “
After the injury last season, Tannehill decided not to undergo surgery and instead had a stem cell procedure that allowed him to participate in all of Miami’s offseason program.
Matt Moore is the Dolphins’ backup quarterback, while Brandon Doughty and David Fales are also under contract.
