QB Ryan Tannehill on schedule to play

By James Walker

Although the Miami Dolphins will wait to make an official announcement, early reports indicate rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill is on schedule to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Palm Beach Post reports it will be "a shocker" if Tannehill doesn't start against the Colts. Tannehill (knee, quad) took all the first-team snaps in the portion of practice open to the media Thursday. The rookie was limited on Wednesday.

Tannehill expressed optimism after Miami’s win over the New York Jets that his left knee and quad injury wouldn’t keep him sidelined. If Tannehill returns, it will set up a big matchup of rookie quarterbacks against Andrew Luck of the Colts.
