Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

As has been reported, Tannehill is expected to be done for the year with a torn ACL. The hits have finally caught up to Tannehill while the Dolphins are in the midst of a playoff chase. The Dolphins will start Matt Moore for the remainder of the season. So let's all support Moore as the team battles their way for a playoff spot.
