Quarterback Ryan Tannehill should be close to full health when the Miami Dolphins hold organized team activities next week.
Tannehill, who missed the entire 2017 season after suffering a preseason knee injury, is expected to participate in OTAs with little or no limitations, the Miami Herald reported Tuesday, citing team sources.
"It's been impressive to watch Ryan really throw the football and the command he has of the offense," Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said, per the newspaper's Armando Salguero. "The 2016 season, he had such a good year. For me, the first thing I did was turn on the (2017) OTAs and the training camp right before he got hurt and got to watch how much improvement and how much jump he had taken in Year 2, and it was unfortunate that he got hurt because obviously the offense was affected by it."
Miami could opt to tread cautiously with Tannehill and give the bulk of the snaps at OTAs to backups Brock Osweiler and David Fales.
Without Tannehill, the Dolphins went 6-10 with Jay Cutler, Matt Moore and Fales calling the signals. The trio combined for 24 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
