Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has practiced every day this week and he’s avoided any setbacks with the left leg injury that forced him out of last week’s game, but the Dolphins aren’t quite ready to name him their starting quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Colts.
Tannehill is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the team is “cautiously optimistic” about Tannehill’s chances of being in the starting lineup this weekend and that they will likely make a final decision after arriving in Indianapolis. Tannehill was able to practice all week, but he wasn’t able to be a full participant at any of the sessions.
That left extra time with the first team for Matt Moore, which should leave him well prepared to either start or relieve Tannehill should the need arise on Sunday. The Dolphins offense operated well after he came into the game against the Jets so that prospect shouldn’t leave the Dolphins too worried.
Wide receiver Brian Hartline is also listed as questionable, but signs point to him being on the field in Indy.
