The initial report on Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s condition doesn’t sound too bad for the rookie.
Peter King of Football Night in America spoke to Dolphins coach Joe Philbin and Philbin said that Tannehill suffered a left quad and knee contusion in the first quarter of Sunday’s 30-9 win over the Jets. Tannehill was hurt on a sack by Jets linebacker Calvin Pace and hobbled off the field. Matt Moore took over at quarterback and didn’t make any mistakes while navigating the Dolphins to their fourth win of the season.
Philbin said that they wouldn’t know more about Tannehill’s outlook until Monday, but King said that the coach didn’t sound worried. As of now, there’s no expectation that he will miss any time as a result of the injury.
If so, that means he’ll be at the controls in an intriguing matchup of rookie quarterbacks piloting 4-3 teams when the Dolphins head to Indianapolis for a date with the Colts.
