Adam Gase Says Matt Moore Is Dolphins' Starting Quarterback 'Right Now'

Jay Cutler and Colin Kaepernick have also been mentioned as options. There's no timetable. Right now, Matt (Moore) is our quarterback.

Last December, Tannehill injured the same knee with a partially torn ACL, but did not need surgery, instead he chose to have stem-cell treatment, and one source in the organization said the knee had been a ticking time bomb because of the decision Tannehill took.

During Thursday's practice, Tannehill scrambled right and leapt out of bounds and landed awkwardly on his left knee. "... We'll see where we go from there because I have to figure out what's going on with Ryan [Tannehill], and then we'll make decisions after that".

"This is part of my role, and I've done this before", said Moore; "Stepping up and being ready if need be". On July 28, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said about a team signing Kaepernick, "If they think he can help them win, I'm sure - I would hope they would sign him", according to the Palm Beach Post.

Salguero notes the Dolphins want a more definitive Tannehill plan before committing to an outside quarterback option. "He was here watching tape yesterday with us and hanging out, so it was good". However, Gase says he has yet to even begin thinking of who the team could potentially bring in as he's still processing the prospect of losing Tannehill for the 2017 season. Tannehill chose to get stem cell treatment instead of surgery on a partially torn ACL, and that seems like a mistake now.

Moore ran the offense through an efficient practice on Friday and will be taking the starting reps for the foreseeable future. Cutler is slated to enter the broadcasting booth for Fox this season, but would reportedly consider delaying the move if he could start and be paid starter's money for the Dolphins. He has been wearing a brace on the knee in training camp.

Moore finished the season with a completion percentage of 63.2, threw for 721 yards, eight touchdowns, three interceptions, and the Dolphins went 2-1 over the final three games which put them in the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
