Ryan Tannehill has bone bruises on knee and thigh, fantasy status uncertain

Alex Trautwig

Ryan Tannehill's Monday MRI showed no structural damage, but he does have bone bruises. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (leg) avoided the worst-case scenarios, but it's still a worrying injury. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Tannehill's Monday MRI revealed no structural damage, but he does have a bone bruise on his knee and a deep thigh bruise. His status for Week 9 is uncertain.

Tannehill was knocked out of Week 8's game against the Jets with the injury. Matt Moore took his place and led the Dolphins to a dominant win.

Fantasy Impact: Tannehill was one of the more pleasant surprises as a rookie QB, so it's tough to see him go down like this. We'll know more about his Week 9 status once practices start on Wednesday.

If Tannehill can't go, Moore would be a decent waiver pickup against the Colts' defense.
