“We got to go next man up, just like every other position,” head coach Adam Gase said after the Dolphins’ 26-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals which featured a knee injury to starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. “That’s why we signed Matt [Moore] back this offseason. It is one of those things where he was kind of looking [at other teams], we were kind of looking [at other quarterbacks], and at the end of the day, I think we both, when we had our meeting, felt like it was the right fit for both of us. And I just know I am glad that he is here.”
The Dolphins will now turn to Moore, likely for the remainder of the season, due to the injury to Tannehill. The injury is expected to come back as a season-ending one on Monday when further tests are completed.
Asked for specifics of the injury, Gase simply said, “It doesn’t look good. We will know more tomorrow.” He would not add any more specifics on the injury.
The Dolphins are expected to get an MRI on Tannehill’s knee Monday morning. According to multiple media reports and sources, the team is expecting the imaging to show a torn ACL for their 2012 first-round draft pick and for his season to officially be over.
