Former Big Spring Steer Ryan Tannehill will have season-ending ACL surgery

Raekwon McMillan leaves Dolphins preseason game with injury

He fills the roster spot vacated by Ryan Tannehill, who was formally placed on injured reserve after deciding to undergo surgery to fix his ACL injury.

Tannehill missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, and he reinjured it a week into training camp.

Tannehill's replacement, Jay Cutler, practiced for the second time Saturday and might play in Thursday's exhibition game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Tannehill opted not to have surgery after last season's injury, and instead rehabilitated the partially torn ligaments and underwent stem cell treatments.

Ryan Tannehill is expected to return to Miami in 2018 as the team's likely starter.

Miami will have a hard decision to make after this season.

Tannehill's $17.98 million salary for this year is fully guaranteed. In May, Cutler had retired from the National Football League and was hired by Fox Sports as a game analyst, but he is putting that off for a year. Tannehill will be owed around $60 million if the Dolphins decide to keep him for the next three seasons.

Torn ACLs have become the bane of the Miami Dolphins 2017 preseason. For the optimists out there, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was the Bears' offensive coordinator that season.

In 2016, Tannehill notched career highs in completion percentage (67.1), touchdown percentage (4.9), yards per attempt (7.7) and passer rating (93.5), as he helped the Dolphins to a 10-6 record, its best mark since he was drafted.
