Dolphins’ Tannehill questionable (shoulder) vs. Bears
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears with a throwing shoulder injury that first bothered him last month.
Tannehill was limited in Friday’s workout — the first time he has missed practice time because of the injury. He wasn’t on the injury report last week, but was during the week of Sept. 24.
Brock Osweiler or David Fales would start if Tannehill can’t play for the injury-plagued Dolphins.
Left tackle Laremy Tunsil has been released from the concussion protocol and is listed as questionable. Tunsil was not limited in practice Friday, and coach Adam Gase said it looks “promising” that he’ll be able to play.
Defensive end Cameron Wake is listed as doubtful with a knee injury. He again sat out practice but isn’t far from returning, Gase said.
“We’re trying to be smart,” Gase said. “We’re being very cautious. We do not want to lose him longer than what we already have right now. We’re just trying to make sure that everything is right and that he’s ready to go and we’ve got him for the rest of the year.
“That’s really the best answer I can give you because he’s an older player that if you rush him back and you have any kind of setback and lose him longer, now that’s going to be a bigger issue.”
