Ryan Tannehill to participate in OTAs with no limitations

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will not limit the activities of quarterback Ryan Tannehill as the team opens their Organized Team Activities on Tuesday, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Miami had been considering adding limitations for Tannehill, who was medically cleared for all activities, during the OTAs in order to ease the quarterback back into football activities.

Tannehill has not played in a game since December 2016, when he sustained a partially torn ACL. The initial recommendations for recovery were rest and rehab, with Tannehill cleared to return to the team for the 2017 season. During training camp, however, Tannehill again injured the knee, leading to surgery that held him out all of the 2017 season.

The Dolphins open their OTAs with a three day period, Tuesday through Thursday this week. They will return for the second three-day period on May 29-31, and the final four-day OTA will be June 11-14. The team’s mandatory veteran minicamp will split the final OTAs, being held June 5-7.
