Ryan Tannehill has 'no restrictions' at OTAs

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) has "no restrictions" at OTAs.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill, who appears to be fully recovered from ACL/ MCL injuries suffered late in the 2016 season without surgery, is crediting his speedy recovery to stem cell therapy, per reports. The impending sixth-year starter is expected to take a dramatic leap in his on-field performance in 2017 due to the presence of second-year head coach Adam Gase, who is touted a quarterback whisperer. With a nucleus of Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry, Julius Thomas, Kenny Sills and DeVante Parker surrounding him, the pieces are in place for Tannehill to succeed and finally live to expectations. From a fantasy football perspective, however, still view Tannehill in the mid-to-back end QB2 tier until signs of improvement are evident.

Ryan Tannehill not too affected by knee injury

Adam Gase has said of Tannehill's knee injury, "He just looks like he did last year." Tannehill doesn't seem to be affected by his knee, moving around normally.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill is an above average quarterback on a good but not great offense, so he's not in the QB1 conversation. However, you can start him when he's up against subpar defenses, as he has a good enough supporting cast to put up reliable numbers. Health for fringe fantasy starters like Tannehill is important, and it is good that it looks like he's fully healthy. Having the quarterback position set is important for Jay Ajayi and Jarvis Landry, both of whom will likely be taken in the early rounds of the draft. The rest of the offense, including recent acquisition Julius Thomas, rely even more heavily on who's at quarterback.

Ryan Tannehill on track for offseason workouts

Miami Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero reports quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) "is healed and will be available for the start of the team’s entire offseason program."

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill, who missed the final three games of the regular season and the playoffs, is on track to be ready for the start of Miami's offseason program. The 28-year-old signal caller sustained a partially torn ACL and Grade 2 MCL sprain in Week 14, but will not require offseason surgery to repair the knee, per reports. Although Tannehill is reportedly "good to go," he is expected to play the 2017 season with a supportive knee brace.

Ryan Tannehill to avoid surgery

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) "is not believed" to require an ACL reconstruction in his left knee before the start of the 2017 season. He will undergo an MRI Monday to confirm his diagnosis.

Fantasy Impact

About a month and a half removed from suffering a torn ACL in Week 14 of the regular season, Tannehill received outstanding news. He is not expected to need reconstructive surgery to repair the tear in his left knee, which ultimately ended his season. He will undergo an MRI Monday to confirm the initial diagnosis. Tannehill, who underwent a "healing procedure" by Dr. James Andrews in December, will likely continue his alternative route to his recovery in the offseason. He is expected to travel to Germany for the Regenokine procedure -- "a form of platelet-rich plasma therapy made famous by Lakers star Kobe Bryant," which "promotes healing." Barring a setback, Tannehill will be available for the team's offseason program.

Ryan Tannehill may still need surgery

Miami Dolphins beat writer Adam Beasley reports head coach Adam Gase "doesn't have an answer" on whether or not quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) needs "major reconstructive surgery" on his injured knee this offseason. "We're still going through that process with our trainers ... how strong is the knee?" Gase said Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Although Tannehill returned to practice last Friday, his playing status for the Divisional Round of the Playoffs remained up in the air and unlikely. However, the Dolphins were eliminated from the postseason by the Steelers Sunday, and now the team must focus on their franchise quarterback's health for 2017. Tannehill suffered a "slight tear" of his ACL and a Grade 2 MCL sprain in Week 14 against the Cardinals, which ended his season. At this point, the team and the signal caller must decide on whether or not major surgery is necessary on the knee. If it is, Tannehill will likely be sidelined for most of the offseason.
