Ryan Tannehill reportedly opts for season-ending knee surgery

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Tannehill left practice on August 3 with a hyperextended left knee that "concerned" the Dolphins coaching staff, especially since it was the same knee that ended his 2016 season prematurely.

Miami is now banking heavily on Jay Cutler, who was lured out of retirement with a one-year, $10-million contract. The Dolphins consulted with specialists before the team and Tannehill decided on surgery.

Gase said it was a tough conversation to have for Tannehill. "It's more and more real". As with Cutler, Tannehill had enjoyed his best season under the tutelage of Gase, who was hired by Miami previous year. He worked so hard to be available for us and those guys did a lot of work during the offseason to get to this point. It's safe to say Miami's preseason is not going as expected following their first playoff appearance since 2008.

The Texas A&M product went down with sprained ligaments in the same knee he injured last week resulting in the surgery he'll undergo to fix his ACL.

Tannehill will have surgery for a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a person familiar with the decision said Friday.

That decision, made in consultation with the Dolphins and medical advisers, appeared to prove costly last week when Tannehill went down, untouched, while running toward the sideline. He instead rehabilitated the partially torn ligaments and underwent stem cell treatments.
