Dolphins Ryan Tannehill Suffers No Structural Damage To Knee

Published

Often times when a injury looks bad it usually turns out to be a lot worse than what was initially thought.

The Miami Dolphins are breathing a sigh of a relief in regards to quarterback Ryan Tannehill who suffered a scary injury in practice on Thursday.

According to NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala there is no structural damage to Ryan Tannehill’s left knee, per a member of the organization.

Tannehill was rolling to his right, heading upfield and toward the sideline and as he was running out of bounds he planted his left leg awkwardly and fell to the ground where he remained for 15 seconds before walking gingerly to the locker room.

Tannehill’s left knee is the same knee that suffered partial ACL tear in last season effectively ending his season as he missed the Dolphins final 4 games and their Wild Card Playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tannehill may miss some time in camp but the Dolphins may want to kick the tires at bringing in another veteran arm such as Colin Kaepernick as an additional insurance policy at the quarterback position.

While the Denver Broncos will be in the market for a backup quarterback, team president John Elway shut the door on the possibility that the team would entertain signing free agent signal caller Colin Kaepernick, although it has nothing to do with protests.

Elway spoke to reporters on Thursday and officially nixed the idea of the team bringing in the former San Francisco 49ers start quarterback.

“He had a chance to be here, he passed on it,” Elway said, according to USA Today’s Lindsay Jones.

Elway is referring to a nixed deal the the Broncos and 49ers had in place that would have seen Kaepernick in Denver back in 2016, but Kaepernick killed the deal by refusing to trim $5 million from his cap number and take additional pay cuts down the road.
