Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tanneshill has not played since Week 8, but his knee remains in good condition, according to Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland.
The Dolphins announced Wednesday that the team placed Tannehills No. 2 overall pick on injured reserve.
Tannehall missed the team’s Week 9 loss to the Cleveland Browns with a sprained MCL in his right knee, but he returned to practice on Thursday and is expected to play Sunday.
“He’s feeling good,” Ireland said.
“I think he’s feeling pretty good.
It was very important for him to be on the field and to be ready to go.” “
We just had to make a decision because it was the best medical advice that we could give him.
It was very important for him to be on the field and to be ready to go.”
Tanneih’s status is unknown, but the team said it would be a priority for him if he could play.
“It’s a process and it’s a long process.
You can’t rush things,” Ireland told reporters.
“If he’s able to practice, we’ll be okay.”
Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Cameron Wake has not practiced this week, but is expected back for the team on Sunday.
Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Richie Incognito is listed as questionable after missing the team practice Wednesday with a right knee contusion, but coach Adam Gase said it was precautionary.
Miami has lost three straight to the Cincinnati Bengals and two to the Indianapolis Colts.
Tanneshills play would be his first since Week 10, when he went for nine yards on two carries and one touchdown.
The NFL announced the results of the MRI on Wednesday.
“This is something that I’ve had in my mind for a long time and I think it’s something that will get better,” Tanneiht said.
The Browns are 8-5 when Tanneich goes for more than 50 yards in a game.
He has at least one touchdown pass and six rushing touchdowns in each of the past five games.
The teams last meeting was Dec. 2, 2015, at the Dolphins’ BB&T Stadium.
The Bengals won 23-17.
Miami is 5-6 all-time against the Dolphins.
