The Miami Dolphins quarterback will undergo an operation to fix the torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the entire season, a person familiar with the decision said Friday. Also on the roster is Matt Moore, who went 2-2 for last season in place of Tannehill. The 29-year-old will aim to return to the field in 2018.

While the Dolphins and Tannehill reportedly came to a decision regarding his knee injury Friday night, Miami's front office and coaching staff have made it clear that they still intend to compete in 2017.

Tannehill left the Dolphins' practice on Thursday after his knee appeared to buckle in a non-contact situation.

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

It begins with soldiers in Her Majesty's Armed Forces fighting an illegal war in Egypt during the controversial Suez Canal crisis. The Queen even gets some valuable advice from Philip's uncle Lord Mountbatten (Greg Wise): "You've married a wild spirit".

Miami will have a hard decision to make after this season.

Tannehill will miss the entire 2017 campaign after tearing his ACL in training camp. Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, the person said. Tannehill will be owed around $60 million if the Dolphins decide to keep him for the next three seasons. As with Cutler, Tannehill had enjoyed his best season under the tutelage of Gase, who was hired by Miami a year ago.

Tannehill will have a tough and possible long rehab ahead of him. I think he's handling it good. Brandon Doughty and David Fales are further down the Dolphins' quarterback depth chart.
