Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will undergo reconstructive surgery to fix the torn ACL in his injured left knee, reports Armando Salguero for the Miami Herald. The 29-year-old quarterback missed the final four games of the 2016 season and the playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers that followed.

The decision to opt for surgery came after Tannehill discussed his options with head coach Adam Gase on Friday. Tannehill will be placed on injured reserve, the person said. Miami's second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft was slated to start at middle linebacker his rookie season.

Tannehill hurt his knee in practice last Thursday and did not return. "The fact that it's him and he knows his body and how he feels-It's unfortunate for him because he worked so hard to be available for us".

Miami is now banking heavily on Jay Cutler, who was lured out of retirement with a one-year, $10-million contract. Going under the knife this early means he should be a full-go for camp next season.

That decision, made in consultation with the Dolphins and medical advisers, appeared to prove costly last week when Tannehill went down, untouched, while running toward the sideline. As with Cutler, Tannehill had enjoyed his best season under the tutelage of Gase, who was hired by Miami previous year.

Ryan Tannehill has decided surgery can no longer be avoided.
