Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill has some bruises, no structural damage

Ryan Tannehill @ryantannehill1's MRI results are back, and they show probably the best-case scenario for the Dolphins. Tannehill has a left knee bone bruise and a deep thigh bruise, but he doesn't have any structural damage. His status for Sunday's game against the Colts remains uncertain.

Fantasy Analysis:

Matt Moore @mattmoore_8 saw three quarters of action in place of Tannehill yesterday and played pretty well -- 11-for-19 passing, 131 yards, one touchdown and no turnovers. Tannehill isn't a very mobile guy, but the Dolphins certainly don't want their quarterback of the future to be a sitting duck against the Colts, and Moore's performance probably gave them a little more comfort about the idea of turning to him if needed. Moore is not on the fantasy radar unless you are in a two-QB league with 12 or more teams, but my guess is he will start against the Colts as the Dolphins play it safe with the rookie.
