The Miami Dolphins were dealt a devastating blow to their chances of making the National Football League playoffs for a second straight season last week with quarterback Ryan Tannehill going down with a non-contact knee injury.

Immediately following Tannehill's knee injury last week, the Dolphins reached out to veteran quarterback Jay Cutler who had made a decision to take his talents up to the Fox Sports broadcast booth.

Tannehill re-injured his left knee during Thursday's training camp practice last week, but an MRI reportedly revealed "no structural damage".

Tannehill chose to avoid surgery after last season's injury.

Miami is now banking heavily on Jay Cutler, who was lured out of retirement with a one-year, $10-million contract.

The decision to opt for surgery came after Tannehill discussed his options with head coach Adam Gase on Friday. It's an extremely unfortunate turn of events for Tannehill, who many in the Dolphins organization believed was poised for a big season. Brandon Doughty and David Fales are further down the Dolphins' quarterback depth chart.

Last season, Tannehill threw for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while completing 67.1 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 93.5 over 13 games.

Miami expects Tannehill to return in 2018 and compete for, if not immediately reassume, its starting quarterback job.
