Ryan Tannehill | QB | Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is making an emphasis on improving his footwork during practice this week. He went through individual and position drills Wednesday, Sept. 24, concentrating on footwork to improve his accuracy. He has a career-low 56.5 completion percentage. Tannehill and head coach Joe Philbin met this week to get clarity on the starting quarterback situation, and Philbin reassured Tannehill that he is the starter for Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders, even though publicly the coach has not backed his quarterback in public.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is shifting from the high-percentage WCO to the faster-paced Eagles-like offense, so it's no surprise his completion percentage is dropping. This season might be a work in progress with Tannehill in the new offense behind a rebuilt offensive line, but if the Dolphins can be patient there could very well be a Nick Foles-like payoff down the road.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he will be the starting quarterback in Week 4 even though head coach Joe Philbin is still not ready to name the starter.
Huddle Up: Tannehill is almost sure to start in London, but the clear message here is that the QB is on a short leash and another lackluster performance will likely lead to a change under center during Miami's Week 5 bye.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill is scheduled to start this weekend in London against the Oakland Raiders, despite head coach Joe Philbin repeatedly not committing to Tannehill as the starter. 'At the end of the week, we're going to pick the 46 guys that give us the best chance to win the game in London,' Philbin said Tuesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: With two interceptions, Tannehill isn't making killer mistakes. Rather it's the plays he isn't making --missing open receivers, converting in key situations -- that are frustrating the Dolphins and fantasy owners. It's netted only 624 passing yards, 18 rushing yards and 49 fantasy points, and continued struggles against the winless Raiders could certainly lead to a change in the team's QB thinking during the following bye week.

The Miami Dolphins have tweaked QB Ryan Tannehill's footwork during training camp in order to improve his accuracy, according to offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. 'We just taught him how we want it to be. We explained it to him,' Lazor said. 'We gave him some drills on how to get it. And he worked his butt off, he's working his butt off to get it right.'
Huddle Up: Lazor worked wonders with Nick Foles in Philly last year, so if he's having the same impact on Tannehill that bodes well for his fantasy prospects.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has thrown three interceptions in practice each of the last two days.
Huddle Up: Obviously not ideal for Tannehill, but he's adjusting to a new tempo under a new offensive coordinator so there are bound to be growing pains. If the Dolphins can cobble together a line to keep Tannehill upright and he's able to power through the growing pains, there is a ton of upside to Miami's new-look passing game this season.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Tannehill, who left Miami's Week 16 game in the fourth quarter, has practiced in full each of the past 2 days and will start against the Jets. The Dolphins and his fantasy owners, meanwhile, are hoping for better protection after the Bills racked up 7 sacks in a 19-0 Week 16 win.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) was practicing with the team Tuesday, Dec. 24, after injuring his knee in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was wearing a sleeve on his left leg after being sacked seven times by the Bills.
Huddle Up: Tannehill was forced out of the Week 16 loss in Buffalo, but early indications are that it won't carry over into Week 17. Still, follow Miami practice reports to be sure.

Updating a previous report, Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) left the Week 16 game against the Buffalo Bills due to a knee injury. While the team feels the injury is minor, Tannehill will undergo an MRI Monday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Tannehill had a nice game against the Jets last time out. He should be fine, but keep an eye on him this week.
