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.

Ryan Tannehill may not be ready for Divisional Round

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it is "clear" that the Miami Dolphins are not "counting" on Ryan Tannehill's (knee) availability for the Divisional Round of the Playoffs next week if they advance.

Fantasy Impact

Although Tannehill practiced for the first time since suffering his knee injury in Week 14 Friday, his availability for next week -- if the Dolphins advance -- remains up in the air. Despite his solid progress, he will likely need a miraculous turnaround in his recovery to be able to play in the postseason. Matt Moore, who is 2-1 as the starter in Tannehill's absence this season, will start his fourth straight game Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Ryan Tannehill practices Friday

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) returned to practice Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Tannehill practiced Friday for the first time since suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain and partially torn ACL in Week 14. However, he told the media that his availability is "uncertain" for next week's Divisional Round of the Playoffs should the Dolphins advance. Barring injury, Matt Moore will continue to start in Tannehill's absence.
