Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

The Ravens second preseason game of the 2017 season will be played on Thursday night in Miami against the Dolphins. Below are four players to watch during Baltimore’s second preseason game: 1. Ryan Mallett For the second straight week, all eyes will be on the Ravens backup quarterback. Mallett under threw several receivers and never quite looked comfortable during his preseason debut. In his defense, he was operating with a majority of the second-team offense against the Redskin’s first and second-team defensive units. However, with most of the Raven’s first-team offense ready to make their respective debuts on Thursday night, there will be no more excuses for Mallett. 2. James Hurst Many of

Reports: Miami QB Ryan Tannehill decides to have season-ending ACL surgery

Friday, August 11th, 2017

It’s been likely for a week that the Miami Dolphins would be without quarterback Ryan Tannehill for the 2017 season after Tannehill suffered a non-contact knee injury in practice. As first reported by the Miami Herald and confirmed by several other outlets, Tannehill and the Dolphins are now in agreement: the best course of action for the quarterback is for him to undergo reconstructive surgery on his left anterior cruciate ligament, place him on injured reserve and end his 2017 season. Ryan Tannehill will have ACL surgery in his left knee.

The Miami Dolphins and Ryan Tannehill have come to the agreement that the best course for repairing a torn ACL in hi left knee is to opt for reconstructive surgery and so the quarterback will have that surgery and be placed on the injured reserve list. That means Tannehill, 29, will miss all of the 2017 season. There is no chance he can return from IR later in the season. His next opportunity to play for the Dolphins will be 2018. A source told The Miami Herald the final decision was made Friday evening when coach Adam Gase and Tannehill spoke about the options open to them. Tannehill, who missed the end of the 2016 season with a partially torn ACL, had been studying all options since he suffered

Friday, August 11th, 2017

DAVIE, Fla. -- Matt Moore spent his first full practice of training camp as the Miami Dolphins' starting quarterback Friday. It could be the first of many in that role depending on what the team decides to do with injured starter Ryan Tannehill, who suffered a left knee injury Thursday. But Moore said he is confident and comfortable in taking over as the starter. "I've done this before in stepping up and getting ready if need be," Moore said. "So that's as much as I know and kind of the attitude I have moving forward. It stinks [with Tannehill being injured], but I thought today was a good practice. Guys were popping around and pretty competitive." Tannehill's left knee buckled without contact

Jaguars release veteran Branden Albert off reserve/retired list, sign veteran running back

Friday, August 11th, 2017

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars released veteran offensive tackle Branden Albert off the reserve/retired list Friday, ending his bizarre, nearly five-month tenure with the team. Albert informed the team that he was leaving the franchise on July 31. His retirement was announced in the middle of the team's second padded practice. Since Albert was competing with second-round pick Cam Robinson for the starting left tackle job, Josh Wells was inserted into the competition to replace the veteran. Last week, Albert approached the team about potentially returning to the NFL in the future, according to the Jaguars. On Monday, the team and Albert mutually agreed to shift the player from the reserve/left
