TAN­NEHILL IN­JURY

DOL­PHINS QB LISTED AT QUES­TION­ABLE,

The Maui News - - SPORTS -

Mi­ami Dol­phins quar­ter­back Ryan Tan­nehill is ques­tion­able for Sun­day’s game against the Chicago Bears with a throw­ing shoul­der in­jury that first both­ered him last month.

Tan­nehill was lim­ited in Fri­day’s work­out — the first time he has missed prac­tice time be­cause of the in­jury. He wasn’t on the in­jury re­port last week, but was dur­ing the week of Sept. 24.

Brock Osweiler or David Fales would start if Tan­nehill can’t play for the in­jury­plagued Dol­phins.

Left tackle Laremy Tun­sil has been re­leased from the con­cus­sion pro­to­col and is listed as ques­tion­able, while de­fen­sive end Cameron Wake is listed as doubt­ful with a knee in­jury. He again sat out prac­tice but isn’t far from re­turn­ing, coach Adam Gase said.

CHIEFS: Kansas City Chiefs wide re­ceiver DeAn­thony Thomas broke a leg dur­ing prac­tice and could miss the rest of the sea­son.

Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said that Thomas was tak­ing part in Thurs­day’s prac­tice when he got stepped on from be­hind, frac­tur­ing the same leg he broke in a game last De­cem­ber. Thomas had surgery to re­pair the break and had a metal rod in­serted, though the lat­est break did not dam­age that re­pair.

“He had what we con­sider a freak ac­ci­dent,” Burkholder said. “All in­di­ca­tions are right now that he won’t need surgery and he will heal up on his own, but he will need some time to heal up.”

The un­de­feated Chiefs will also be with­out free safety Eric Mur­ray (an­kle) and of­fen­sive line­man Lau­rent Du­ver­nayTardif (leg) against the Pa­tri­ots on Sun­day, while line­backer Justin Hous­ton (ham­string) is doubt­ful.

BROWNS: Cleve­land rookie wide re­ceiver Der­rick Willies broke his col­lar­bone in prac­tice Fri­day and will miss Sun­day’s game against the Los An­ge­les Charg­ers and likely sev­eral more.

Willies came through for the Browns last week against the Bal­ti­more Ravens af­ter Rashard Hig­gins went down while mak­ing a block in the fourth quar­ter.

An un­drafted free agent from Texas Tech, Willies turned a short pass from quar­ter­back Baker May­field into a 39-yard gain in over­time to help set up Cleve­land’s gamewin­ning field goal with 2 se­conds left.
