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.

Jacksonville Jaguars newly acquired tackle Ereck Flowers, who infamously flopped for his former team the New York Giants, believes that the Jags will present a “better fit” for him than the Giants presented.

“Great opportunities, great team and I’m happy to be here,” Flowers said,according to the Florida Times-Union. “Definitely a fresh start for me. I like it here, man. I think this will be a better fit. They have a great locker room, great guys. I’m grateful to be here.”

While the Giants gave up on Flowers, despite his high draft status, the Jags are hopeful Flowers can contribute.

“Make no mistake about it, if we feel someone can help us or making a change is better for us, then we will do that,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “That is everywhere. It is hard when the whole team is not playing well.”

Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”
