Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill left Sunday’s 19-0 loss to the Bills in the second half after injuring his knee on Buffalo’s sixth sack of the game. 

Tannehill would return to the game, taking a seventh sack in the process, and then hand things back to Matt Moore once it became apparent that the Dolphins were completely squandering their golden opportunity to solidify their playoff chances. After the game ended, Tannehill said that he wasn’t in danger of missing the final game of the regular season against the Jets.

“No, I feel good,” Tannehill said, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

Because the Ravens did their best Dolphins impersonation against the Patriots on Sunday afternoon, they still have a good shot at winding up in the playoffs. They need to beat the Jets and need a win from either the Chargers or the Bengals to make them the sixth seed. Keeping Tannehill upright would be a good way to improve the chances of that happening.
