During Thursday's practice at Dolphins training camp, Tannehill was scrambling to the sideline when he went down in a heap of pain.

Adam Gase and Co. are reportedly "concerned" after quarterback Ryan Tannehill hyperextended his left knee during practice on Thursday. The Miami Herald reported that he stayed down for about 15 seconds before going to the locker room with an injured left knee. Backup quarterback Matt Moore, who went 2-2 while filling in for Tannehill previous year, took over first-team reps for the Dolphins for the remainder of practice.

The Miami Dolphins are hoping their quarterback doesn't join those ranks.




Tannehill seemed to suffer a non-contact injury, which normally indicates a severe leg or knee injury. Matt Moore is next in line to take first team reps while Tannehill is out.

Tannehill went 8-5 as a starter last season while posting a career-best 93.5 passer rating.

Tannehill missed the last three regular season games as well as the wild card game. The Dolphins have stayed away from quarterbacks in the draft and free agency, aside from Davis Fales, but they may be forced to seek out a potential stand in for Tannehill.
