DAVIE, Fla. – Miami Dolphins head coach Adam Gase says quarterback Ryan Tannehill is getting a second opinion on his injured knee, but the team has not made an decision on his playing future.
Speaking Friday morning in an impromptu media briefing, Gase said surgery is still an option for Tannehill, but refused to discuss the possibility that the injury the quarterback suffered Thursday is season-ending.
Twenty-four hours after the injury, there is no timetable for a final decision.
"So we're still getting kind of, I wouldn't say second and third (opinions), we're probably going deeper than that," added Gase. "(We're) talking to a lot of people, just making sure we're getting all the right information and then we'll make a decision after that.”
Gase added that backup Matt Moore is the team's quarterback "right now."
Tannehill was at the Dolphins training facility watching practice from inside the building. The Dolphins quarterback suffered the injury to his left knee during a drill Thursday morning.
"It's hard. He's a buddy, a teammate," Moore said after Friday's practice. "You never want to see that happen. This is part of my role. I've done this before and stepping up and being ready if need be."
Moore said he had a chance to speak with Tannehill.
"He's obviously waiting, like we all are," Moore said. "Nobody knows what’s going on, but he seems to be in good spirits. He was here watching tape (Thursday) with us and hanging out, so it was good."
Moore went 2-2 with the team last season after Tannehill injured the same knee.
ESPN reported late Thursday that Tannehill's injury could be season-ending.
