Health of Tannehill's knee still remains a mystery

By: Andy Slater 

The Miami Dolphins Executive Vice-President of Football Operations still provided no clarity on the status of Ryan Tannehill's knee.

On Friday morning, Mike Tannenbaum said Ryan Tannehill "should be ready" when the Miami Dolphins take the field next season.

Tannenbaum appeared on 940 WINZ with Jeff DeForrest.

While Tannenbaum did say the team is "encouraged" by Tannehill's progress, he also said the Dolphins' quarterback "still has a ways to go in his rehab."

An report earlier this week said Tannehill may head to Germany for knee treatment, instead of opting for surgery. 

A Slater Scoop shortly after Tannehill went down vs. Arizona confirmed an ACL injury and that he was out for the season.
