DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins put on hold their planned release of left tackle Branden Albert when another team expressed interest in a trade shortly before the roster move was completed Thursday.
The Dolphins told Albert he won't be with them for the 2017 season. No trade can be completed until the start of the league year March 9.
The decision to part with Albert clears the way for 2016 first-round draft pick Laremy Tunsil to move over from guard.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill practiced on a limited basis Friday and might be available next week if his team advances to the second round of the playoffs.
Tannehill worked with the scout team in his first practice since being sidelined against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14 because of a sprained left knee. He has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, and 10-year veteran Matt Moore will make his first playoff start.
