Tannehill expected to have 'little or no limitations' in OTAs

Miami Dolphins doctors, coaches and Ryan Tannehill will meet this week to decide how much work the quarterback will do during the onfield "organized team activity" sessions that begin next Tuesday and run into mid-June, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

According to Dolphins sources the expectation is Tannehill — who missed the final month of 2016 with a partially torn ACL and all of last season when he further tore the same ligament — will be able to participate in the OTAs with little or no limitations.

That would be the medical decision. But coaches might still opt to limit the quarterback in some form not only to work Tannehill in methodically but also to give backup quarterbacks Brock Osweiler and David Fales ample work — including perhaps some snaps with the first-team offense.

"It’s been impressive to watch Ryan really throw the football and the command he has of the offense," said offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who has seen glimpses of Tannehill's throwing on tape and in the early part of the current offseason conditioning program.

"The 2016 season, he had such a good year. For me, the first thing I did was turn on the [2017] OTAs and the training camp right before he got hurt and got to watch how much improvement and how much jump he had taken in Year 2, and it was unfortunate that he got hurt because obviously the offense was affected by it."
