Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has left the team’s Week 14 game against the New England Patriots with an ankle injury. In the second quarter, Tannehill dropped back to pass only to have right tackle Ja’Wuan James step back onto Tannehill’s ankle, rolling it and leading to a sack. Tannehill tried to stand up, then sat back down on the field before trainers came out to look at him. He then limped off the field and straight back to the locker room.

The team has not made an announcement on the likelihood of Tannehill returning. Brock Osweiler replaced Tannehill in the lineup.

Tannehill was 5-for-8 for 96 yards with a touchdown and a 143.8 passer rating before the injury. He was sacked three times, including the sack when he was injured. Tannehill has missed five games this season after sustaining a shoulder injury earlier in the season. He missed all of the 2017 season with a knee injury.

Miami has had success against the Patriots with the running attack thus far, with 12 carries leading to 142 yards with two touchdowns. Frank Gore leads the way with six carries for 54 yards, while Brandon Bolden has two carries for 60 yards and two touchdowns.

The game is currently at halftime, with the Patriots leading 27-21.

UPDATE: Tannehill returned to the game after halftime.
