This Sunday, two surprise AFC teams will meet in Miami that could ultimately determine which starting rookie quarterback will make the playoffs. The Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins, thought to be rebuilding projects, both enter Sunday’s matchup with 4-3 records and playing for a potential playoff wild card. While many analysts projected Colts QB Andrew Luck to eventually become one of the league’s elite, no one believed Luck or his counterpart Miami’s Ryan Tannehill to bring instant success to their respective franchises. Unfortunately for Dolphins fans, there is an estimated 50% chance that Tannehill will miss this upcoming game due to bruised knee, which forced him out of last Sunday’s road victory over the hapless New York Jets. However, he is expected to start and play unless he is severely hampered by his lack of mobility. Head Coach Joe Philbin would likely be forced to substitute in Matt Moore, who was 11 for 19 and r...

Yesterday, the Miami Dolphins welcomed Ryan Tannehill back to the practice field. Tannehill is still recovering from a hyperextended knee and deep thigh bruise that he suffered in the Dolphins win on Sunday. Tannehill was limited in Wednesday’s practice, only taking part in individual drills. Matt Moore took the majority of the actual practice snaps with the entire first...
DAVIE, Fla. -- The "Suck for Luck" campaign was in full force a year ago. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 and in position to land Andrew Luck with the top pick in the NFL draft.
It didn't happen. The Dolphins suddenly turned matters around and finished 6-10. Indianapolis ended up with the highly touted quarterback.
But the Dolphins have come out OK. They managed to get...
Ryan Tannehill (knee) is expected to be on a short leash if he gets the green light for Sunday’s game versus the Colts. A source tells the Palm Beach Post that the coaching staff won’t be afraid to go to the bullpen for Matt Moore “if Tannehill’s knee inhibits his play.”
This is just to be careful with their very promising quarterback. It will be interesting to see how...

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, and coach Joe Philbin says there's no timetable for a decision on whether he'll play.
Tannehill was limited in practice for the third day in a row Friday and again wore a brace on his left leg. He left Sunday's 30-9 victory over the New York...
According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (quad, knee) is "50-50" to start against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday. Tannehill had his knee drained twice this week.Fantasy Spin:Tannehill took all of Miami's first-team snaps during the media portion of Thursday's practice so he seems to be on track to play Sunday but it could come down to...

Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill (bruised knee) is active and will start Sunday against the Colts.Fantasy Spin:Employ Tannehill as you usually would. Injured wideout Brian Hartline (groin) is also available for the Dolphins. He had been a game-time decision.
In the 2011 season opener, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw for 422 yards, surpassing Peyton Manning's rookie single-game passing record.
One year later, Manning's successor in Indianapolis has outdone them both.
In the Colts' 23-20 win over the Dolphins on Sunday, Andrew Luck completed 30-of-48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns, as he enters the NFL record...
If the NFL season ended today, the Miami Dolphins would have earned one of the AFC’s two wildcard playoff berths, based in part by the strong play of rookie QB Ryan Tannehill. As the Dolphins prepare to take on the Indianapolis Colts, Miami might have to take the field without Tannehill this week.
ESPN’s Ed Werder confirmed on Friday that Tannehill is indeed a 50-50 bet to start...
A historic NFL matchup may come down to a game time decision on Sunday as Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited once again at practice on Friday and is listed as questionable on the injury report. If Tannehill is able to suit up against fellow first round pick Andrew Luck, it would be the first game between two rookie quarterbacks taken in the first ten picks with a winning...
You could easily make the argument that Ryan Tannehill has exceeded expectations as the starting quarterback of the Miami Dolphins this season. His TD-to-interception ratio of 4-to-6 is underwhelming, but Tannehill’s quarterback rating of 75.8 is not all that bad for a rookie leading an offense. Most importantly, he has played well enough to lead the Dolphins to a 4-3 record.
It's week nine of the NFL season and the Miami Dolphins take their three game winning streak to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in a game that was not expected to have much significance. However, those expectations are three months old and the matchup that was projected to decide which team would likely land the first overall pick in the 2013 draft now has...
