Miami Dolphins quaterback Ryan Tannehill is taking first-team snaps in practice on Wednesday according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Tannehill hyperextended his knee and suffered a deep thigh bruise in the Dolphins' 30-9 win over the New York Jets. He was injured during the first quarter and backup quarterback Matt Moore stepped in to lead Miami to victory.
Tannehill was 2-for-5 for 18 yards against the Jets before being forced out of the game. On the season, the rookie has thrown for 1,472 yards and has completed 59.1 percent of his passes. Tannehill has thrown four touchdowns and six interceptions; he has also ran for one touchdown so far this season.
A first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Tannehill beat out Moore and an injured David Garrard to win the Dolphins' starting quarterback position. He has put up average stats on the season, but has helped lead Miami to a 4-3 record, including three straight victories.
