Dolphins sign replacement for McMillan, officially end Tannehill's season

Dolphins sign replacement for McMillan, officially end Tannehill's season

Tannehill originally injured his knee during Miami's Week 14 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals last season. The 29-year-old quarterback missed the final four games of the 2016 season and the playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers that followed.

Salguero reports this "decision was made Friday evening made Friday evening when coach Adam Gase and Tannehill spoke about the options open to them".

Tannehill suffered the injury on August 3 when he fell to the ground while scrambling toward the sideline in practice.

Miami will have a hard decision to make after this season.

Torn ACLs have become the bane of the Miami Dolphins 2017 preseason. The Dolphins consulted with specialists before the team and Tannehill decided on surgery.

"It was tougher for me because it's more and more real", Gase said. Miami moved quickly to address its quarterback situation, handing Cutler, 34, a one-year, $10 million contract. It's unfortunate for him. He's trying to do everything he can to help Jay (Cutler) out and Matt (Moore) has done a great job.

Tannehill will still be around the team this season, Gase said.

Last season, Tannehill threw for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while completing 67.1 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 93.5 over 13 games.

Ryan Tannehill has decided surgery can no longer be avoided.
