Quote:
The successfully recovery means Tannehill will participate in the team's April conditioning program and organized team activities in May. The quarterback is expected to sport a knee brace throughout the 2017 season, though


Quote:
Tannehill weeks ago passed a battery of tests on his ACL and Grade 2 MCL sprain, The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reported Thursday. He is not only fully healthy, per Salguero, but also no more susceptible to a future ACL tear in his left knee than if he'd undergone surgery.


This is encouraging considering the amount of uncertainty surrounding the injury.

Now, lets put the Romo and other Trade rumors to rest.

Stem cell treatments have been a boon to athletes.

Good for Tannehill, glad to see it. Won't miss a single offseason program.

Ignoring the appearance that things definitely seemed to start clicking for tannehill in very positive ways as this season went on, Tannehill's greatest ability is most definitely his durability. This guy has always taken huge hits and bounced back. Anyone who saw this injury "knew" he had severely damaged his knee. Less than 4 months later he's cleared to fully participate in offseason activities. That's pretty incredible.

Great news. Now we just need to bring in 2 FA upgrades at OG and our Offense will be looking solid, roster wise. Add a FA upgrade at LB and we will be set for the BPA on defense in round 1 and 2.

I don't want to throw cold water on it, but he still has a partially torn ACL, and will be required to wear a knee brace. It won't affect his throwing motion, but he won't be able to scramble like he used too. That brace is like putting handles on his leg, defenders will be able to lock onto it.
