Unfortunately for both himself and his team, Miami Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s 2017 season is officially over before it could begin. After news came out last week that Tannehill had suffered a significant knee injury in practice, the Palm Beach Post’s Joe Schad is reporting that Tannehill will indeed need to have season-ending surgery:

Ryan Tannehill will have season-ending surgery and go on IR, league source confirms #MiamiDolphins

— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) August 12, 2017

The former Texas A&M star is coming off of a nice 2016 season, in which he completed 67 percent of his passes and had a 19:12 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

In his place, the Dolphins have chosen to sign another former SEC star: Vanderbilt’s Jay Cutler. The former Commodore was convinced to give up his new job as an analyst for Fox Sports in exchange for another shot in the league.
