Report: Ryan Tannehill unlikely to return for Week 8
Ryan Tannehill is going to miss his second consecutive game when the Miami Dolphins take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday, and it sounds like the quarterback still has multiple weeks to go before he is ready to return.
According to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, Tannehill is unlikely to play in Week 8 when the Dolphins take on the Houston Texans on “Thursday Night Football.”
Not only is he out Sunday vs. Lions, but Dolphins’ QB Ryan faces an “uphill challenge” and is unlikely to play next Thursday night vs. Texans, per ESPN’s @CameronWolfe.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said this week that Tannehill is considered day-to-day with his shoulder injury, but the fact that he is going to miss at least three games means it is fairly serious. Gase said the injury got progressively worse last week, and the NFL is actually looking into whether or not the Dolphins broke rules with the way they reported it.
Brock Osweiler was able to lead Miami to a dramatic overtime win over the Chicago Bears last Sunday, and the Dolphins are hoping for more of that magic going forward.
