Under-pressure Tannehill limited in practice

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill didn’t mention anything wrong with his right shoulder when he talked to reproters Wednesday.

But according to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, he was listed as limited on the injury report, indicating he’s not completely healthy even though he didn’t miss a snap last week after taking a hit on his throwing shoulder that caused a fumble.

He’s now been sacked nine times in two games, second-most in the league.

“When I have all the time in the world [to throw the ball], it’s completely on me,” Tannehill said. “There’s a couple where I need to step up a half-step, and it’s not a sack at all. It’s not like I’m getting a sack from everywhere and every time I step back I’m getting pressure.”

Keeping him upright, and well, is the new challenge for the Dolphins.

  1. Tannehill has really come into his own this season. It’s crazy that he doesn’t receive more attention for what he is doing. While everyone is focused on Luck and RG3 this kid is making major moves.

    He might have taken enough steps in the offseason to give Miami a playoff birth. Even if he is a no go the Fins have a very capable backup in Matt Moore who can get the job done. Miami would have to change up their gameplan to compliment Moore but he is very capable of getting a W if Tannehill Was not able to go.

  2. Last year those sacks were INTs. The line will hopefully get better throughout the season, and Lamar Miller will be better at pass protection. All in all I’m very happy with RT17 improvement.

    2TD’s and a picck thats nothing compared to what his fellow draft mates are doing with the exception of Wilson, but i will take Wilson more dynamic. Anyhow, he does have a good D to play smart.
