Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase is vague about QB Ryan Tannehill’s shoulder injury
Brock Osweiler, get your earmuffs ready.
Looks like you’ll be starting on the frozen tundra.
Ryan Tannehill again did not throw passes during the portion of practice open to reporters Wednesday.
That’s a tell-tale sign that Tannehill is still dealing with weakness or discomfort in his throwing shoulder. That seems to rule out Tannehill for this Sunday’s game in Green Bay, which would be the fifth consecutive game Tannehill has missed since sustaining a capsule injury.
It would also mark the 25th time in the Dolphins’ past 30 games, including playoffs, that Tannehill has been too hurt to play.
UPDATE (2:12 p.m.): Adam Gase has ruled out Tannehill for the Packers game. Osweiler will start. Gase said the goal is for Tannehill to be ready for the Colts game on Nov. 25. Doctors have decided that the best course of action is for Tannehill not to throw at all until the bye and see how it responds when the Dolphins return for practice in Week 12.
At least Osweiler should have decent protection against the Packers.
Both Laremy Tunsil and Ja’Wuan James practiced at least on a limited basis after both leaving the Jets games with knee injuries. James ultimately returned despite suffering what NFL Network described as a minor patellar tendon injury.
More Dolphins injury news:
Charles Harris seems to be trending in the right direction after missing the past four games with a strained calf. While he did not work with his position group during the period open to reporters, he went through rigorous, on-field individual drills.
Two Dolphins did not practice at all Wednesday: Danny Amendola, who usually gets Wednesdays off, and Cameron Wake.
