Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill To Undergo Season-Ending ACL Surgery

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala initially provided some optimism for Tannehill and the Dolphins when she reported there was no structural damage to the knee.

Even before he has surgery, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase says Tannehill will be ready for the 2018 season.

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

When asked about his conversation with Tannehill, Gase said: "It was probably tougher for me". "It's more and more real". It's unfortunate for him. "He worked so hard". As with Cutler, Tannehill had enjoyed his best season under the tutelage of Gase, who was hired by Miami past year.

The day after learning McMillan had indeed torn his ACL in the preseason opener, Miami signed linebacker Junior Sylvestre.

One source told Schefter that Tannehill's knee was "a ticking time bomb that was going to go off at any time" after he opted not to have it surgically repaired following a partial ACL tear during a Week 14 game against the Arizona Cardinals last season. Their worst fears were realized and a week later he has decided the best course of action is reconstructive surgery sometime this week, a decision he should have made last season instead of stem cell therapy and rehab, but hindsight is 20/20.

Ryan Tannehill has decided surgery can no longer be avoided.
