Ryan Tannehill injury: MRI reveals no structural damage, but fantasy status still uncertain

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Ryan Tannehill suffered no structural damage in his left knee, results from an MRI revealed Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

An MRI taken on Ryan Tannehill's injured left knee revealed no structural damage, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. The Miami Dolphins quarterback reportedly did suffer a bone bruise and a deep thigh bruise, however, putting his status for Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts in question.

If Tannehill is forced to sit, Matt Moore will take the reins of the offense. Moore went 11-for-19 passing for 131 yards and a touchdown after Tannehill was forced to leave in the first quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will need to keep a close eye on injury reports this week if they rely on Tannehill as a starting option. Only those in deeper two-quarterback leagues should truly be affected, however. Tannehill has thrown just four touchdowns on the season, making him a backup option at best in standard formats.
