The Miami Dolphins have not said much since Ryan Tannehill hyper-extended his knee and bruised his quad against the Jets on Sunday. The Dolphins sent Tannehill for an MRI on Monday, but didn’t release the results. Well, actions speak louder than words would have, as Ryan Tannehill returned to the Dolphins practice field today.  According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Tannehill took snaps with the first team players during individual drills.  Matt Moore then stepped in with the Dolphins starting offense.  Pat Devlin took the second team snaps. #bbpBox_263667377215008769 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_263667377215008769 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }Ryan Tannehill is taking first-team snaps during open portion of practice.about 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPhoneReplyRetweetFavorite@ArmandoSalgueroArmando SalgueroTannehill’s leg injuries will be closely monitored this week.  If he cannot show the coaches that he has the mobility necessary to move fluidly, the Dolphins will probably have Matt Moore start at quarterback.  Moore did a good job last week against the Jets, posting a 96.6 QB rating, while managing the offense effectively. There is no doubt that Tannehill wants to play this weekend.  Tannehill is said to have spoken with Joe Philbin on the ride home from New Jersey, saying that he will be fine. Tannehill said after the Jets game that he could’ve gone back in if the score was closer. Tannehill must prove it and must be able to practice tomorrow and/or Friday with the first team offense.   Ultimately, Joe Philbin and the Dolphins coaching staff will make the final call after seeing how Tannehill moves in practice.  (cont’d on page 2, click below) Pages: 1 2
