Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill finally makes a decision on treatment

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill finally makes a decision on treatment”

Tannehill will be placed on IR and miss the entire 2017 season, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

The Texas A&M product went down with sprained ligaments in the same knee he injured last week resulting in the surgery he'll undergo to fix his ACL.

Tannehill suffered the injury while taking a tumble in practice last week. That effectively ends the season for the Dolphins quarterback, leaving recent addition Jay Cutler as Miami's likely starter for 2017. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018.

Tannehill chose to avoid surgery after last season's injury.

Cutler, who parted with the Chicago Bears after eight seasons, postponed retirement and his TV job, signing a $10 million, one-year contract.

The decision to opt for surgery came after Tannehill discussed his options with head coach Adam Gase on Friday.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (17) throws the ball during training camp at Baptist Health Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University.

But the year before, 2015, had been arguably Cutler's best statistically with 3,659 passing yards, a 64.6 completion percentage, and 21 touchdowns against 11 interceptions. Now it appears that knee injury will end Tannehill's 2017 National Football League season before it even begins.

"It was probably tougher for me", Gase said. The Dolphins consulted with specialists before the team and Tannehill decided on surgery.
