Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill reportedly decides to have season-ending ACL surgery

Dolphins inactives vs. Falcons Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill reportedly decides to have season-ending ACL surgery

"One source said Thursday that, because Tannehill did not fix his partially torn ACL during the offseason, his knee was "a ticking time bomb" that was going to go off at any time", Schefter reported last week.

Now he'll spend the 2017 season watching and rehabbing as his last-minute replacement Jay Cutler leads the Dolphins.

World's oldest man, Holocaust survivor Yisrael Kristal dies at age 113
"Yisrael Kristal (...) died Friday, a month before his 114th birthday", said the israeli daily Haaretz , in its online edition. He was officially recognized as the world's oldest man by the Guinness Book of World Records in March 2016.

Tannehill and the Dolphins elected rehabilitation and stem-cell treatment instead of surgery, and it seemed to be a good decision. Tannehill sustained the injury on August 3 on a non-contact play when he planted his left leg awkwardly while rolling to his right.

Initially, it was reported that there was no structural damage to Tannehill's left knee but Adam Schefter of ESPN said the quarterback's latest knee issue will require season-ending surgery. Cutler is fortunate that Tannehill and backup Matt Moore are regarded as unselfish teammates. They answered that question by signing Jay Cutler to a one-year, $10 million deal even before a decision had been made about surgery for Tannehill. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018. The veteran QB had retired from the National Football League, prior to Miami's call. Last season, Gase showed the most confidence in Tannehill of any previous coach or offensive coordinator by giving him audible powers at the line of scrimmage. Tannehill went through the entire offseason program - OTAs (organized team activities) and mini-camp - and the first few days of training camp without a problem.
