Dolphins Rule Out Ryan Tannehill For Week 7, Starting Brock Osweiler


Dolphins HC Adam Gase announced Wednesday that QB Ryan Tannehill has been ruled out for Week 7’s game and they will be starting Brock Osweiler against the Lions.

Gase added that it’s unknown if Tannehill will be able to play against the Texans next Thursday.

Tannehill, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2012. He’s currently in the third year of his six-year, $95.272 million contract that includes $45 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $17.47 million and $18.725 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Tannehill has appeared in five games for the Dolphins and thrown for 972 yards while completing 65.9 percent of his passes to go along with eight touchdowns and five interceptions.

Osweiler, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Broncos before signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans that included $37 million guaranteed back in 2016.

The Texans traded Osweiler and a 2018 second-round pick to the Browns in return for a 2017 fourth-round pick. Cleveland had been attempting to trade Osweiler since they acquired him but the ultimately cut him loose coming out of the preseason after no deal surfaced.

Osweiler returned to the Broncos and finished out the season in Denver before agreeing to a one-year, $880,000 deal with the Dolphins this past March.

In 2018, Osweiler has appeared in two games for the Dolphins and thrown for 415 yards while completing 65.3 percent of his passes to go along with four touchdowns and two interceptions.
