The 26-year old also has collected one interception in his time in the National Football League, after being drafted out of Liberty University.

The Dolphins also have Matt Moore, who started the four games last season in Tannehill's absence and who started 12 games for Miami in 2011, becoming a backup when Tannehill arrived the following season.

In case there was any doubt, Ryan Tannehill's 2017 season is officially over.

The Miami Dolphins opened their preseason against the Atlanta Falcons, and are now monitoring a situation involving rookie linebacker Raekwon McMillan, who was taken to the locker room with an apparent leg injury.

The Miami Herald reported Friday that the Dolphins quarterback will have reconstructive surgery to fix a torn ACL in his left knee.

The Dolphins will take on the Baltimore Ravens next Thursday and the game will once again take place at Hard Rock Stadium. Now with McMillan's injury, the Dolphins will have to make some changes.

Last season, Cutler played in just five games because of thumb and shoulder injuries.

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

"Yes, I've called signals at Mike (linebacker) the last couple of years, so that's not something that's new to me", Hull said. Ajayi has appeared at practice the last few days but has spent the vast majority of his time running, catching passes or watching. "We're getting him a little rest right now", Gase said. Miami may wait and see which players are cut from other teams before making a decision, but this year there is no first roster cut-down period so they may have to wait a bit longer than usual.
