Update: Tannehill has re-entered the game for the Dolphins.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been injured and removed from the game against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. He is questionable to return with a knee injury, according to Albert Breer.

Matt Moore replaced him under center. He promptly threw an interception shortly after entering the game.

Tannehill was injured when Kyle Williams sacked him early in the fourth quarter. Williams came down on the back of Tannehill's knee on the play. The quarterback is currently on the sideline going over strategy with the coaching staff and looks as though he'll attempt to re-enter the game.

The Dolphins have struggled on offense all day, putting up just 94 passing yards through over three quarters of play. Miami has likely cost itself a playoff berth, as the loss would drop them to 8-7 and put them in bad shape for making the second AFC wild card spot.

Tannehill 10-of-20 for 82 yards and no touchdowns before leaving the game.
