Miami Dolphins mulling Ryan Tannehill injury, Matt Moore

Jay Cutler has interest in playing for the Dolphins – if he's the starter: Reports

Leadership is crucial to the quarterback position, and if what Smith says is true, the Dolphins should not even think about Jay Cutler. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator in 2015 when they had Cutler at quarterback.

Tannehill's backup is Matt Moore, a nine-year National Football League veteran who started three games last season with the Dolphins. NFL.com reported that Tannehill has no structural damage in the knee, while ESPN reports that he could require season-ending surgery. A source described Tannehill's knee as a "ticking time bomb that can go off anytime".

"We're still getting-I wouldn't say second and third (medical opinions), but we're probably going deeper than that", Gase said in his first comments since Tannehill got hurt.

Moore said he's not concerned about Miami bringing in someone to challenge him: "I'm focused on training camp, not really thinking about that". We'll see where we go from there because I've got to figure out what's going on with Ryan.

Now, Moore might be thrown back into the fire as the Dolphins decide how to best handle Tannehill's latest ailment. Earlier, Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reported that Tannehill's knee showed no structural damage but the Dolphins can not determine how long their quarterback will be out of action. "Been kind of going through that, kind of seeing how hard [Tannehill] worked to be back out there and go through the spring - a lot of the things he did to make sure everything was good". People forget about that because Tannehill got the win in the stat sheet, but that was Matt Moore's "save", to put it in baseball terms.

Moore told reporters Friday that he is confident and comfortable in taking over as the starter. A brace can help with knee instability, but no brace can take the place of a ligament.

The eighth overall pick of the 2012 draft, Tannehill completed 67.1 percent of his passes past year, throwing for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a career-best 93.5 passer rating in 13 games.
