Ryan Tannehill officially elects for season-ending surgery

The Miami Dolphins were expected to make some noise in the AFC and make a run in the playoffs behind QB Ryan Tannehill and HC Adam Gase. Before opting for reconstructive surgery, Tannehill also looked into the possibility of treatment on his left knee.

A person familiar with the decision says Tannehill will have surgery to fix the torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the entire season.

Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season before it got started. 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.

Spurs have stability and bringing in lots of players doesn't always gel, so they do have this advantage of have a settled squad. The Manchester City boss wants to raid his former club to reunite with Spanish worldwide Sergio Busquets.

Last season, Cutler played in just five games because of thumb and shoulder injuries. He fell to the ground before walking gingerly to the locker room.

"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. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018. Cutler had one of his best statistical seasons under Gase's leadership in 2015.

Gase and Tannehill seemed to develop a connection in 2016, but injuries are back-breaking in the National Football League and this could be a game-changer for the Dolphins. Tannehill, for his part, tossed for 2,995 yards with 19 touchdowns and 12 picks in 13 games before he suffered the injury. The Ravens were expecting Flacco to miss significant time due to recurring back issues, so this is a good sign.
