Dolphins mum on Ryan Tannehill's (knee) status Friday

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says knee surgery is an option for quarterback Ryan Tannehill, a decision that would likely sideline him for the entire season.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore has been here before.

Last December, Tannehill injured the same knee with a partially torn ACL, but did not need surgery, instead he chose to have stem-cell treatment, and one source in the organization said the knee had been a ticking time bomb because of the decision Tannehill took.

While the Dolphins have Matt Moore as a backup, and he performed capably when Tannehill went down previous year, two other big names have been floated for spots with Miami: Colin Kaepernick and Jay Cutler.

Tannehill could decide to rest the knee for six to eight weeks and try to come back from the injury, or he could undergo surgery, which would end his season, ESPN reported. For now, Matt Moore will be the starter under center in place of Tannehill. Darlington also reported that former National Football League quarterback Jay Cutler could consider delaying his new broadcasting job with FOX Sports to play for the Dolphins, but would only do it for starter's money. Owner Stephen Ross was reportedly open-minded to Kaepernick's national-anthem protest previous year and didn't mind when several Dolphins players also kneeled during the anthem.

The NFL rumors are also targeting a team that could be most receptive to Colin Kaepernick. Though Moore appears to hold down the starting job in Tannehill's absence, the two behind Moore on the depth chart - Brandon Doughty and David Fales - have looked underwhelming in training camp. As Bleacher Report noted, several Dolphins player joined in Kaepernick's protest last season, and coach Adam Gase is known as a "player's coach" who is in tune with their off-the-field beliefs.
