QB’S IN­JURY LESS SE­RI­OUS THAN FIRST FEARED

The Denver Post - - SPORTS OFF & RUNNING -

davie, fla.» Ryan Tan­nehill was back at the Dolphins’ com­plex Mon­day, his left knee in­jury less se­ri­ous than first feared.

The in­jury was di­ag­nosed as a sprained ACL and MCL, coach Adam Gase said, mean­ing Tan­nehill will avoid surgery.

It re­mains un­likely he’ll play again this sea­son, and Matt Moore will make his first start since 2011 on Satur­day against the Jets.

When Tan­nehill was hurt Sun­day against Ari­zona, the Dolphins (8-5) feared a torn ACL that would re­quire surgery and a long, ar­du­ous re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. The Dolphins learned the fi­nal di­ag­no­sis late Sun­day.
