QB Ryan Tannehill has a shoulder injury

October, 23, 2013
DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited in practice Wednesday with a shoulder injury, according to the team's injury report. The Dolphins didn't designate which shoulder. However, Tannehill also was on the injury report in Week 3 with a right (throwing) shoulder injury.

Tannehill met with the media Wednesday and is expected to play. However, this is further proof that the hits are piling up on Miami’s starting quarterback. The Dolphins have allowed 26 sacks this season. Miami made a trade for new left tackle Bryant McKinnie on Tuesday in hopes of improving their pass protection.

Dolphins receiver Brandon Gibson (hip), linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and McKinnie (knee) also were limited in practice on Wednesday.

Update: The Dolphins updated their injury report and announced Tannehill has a right (throwing) shoulder injury.
