Report: Dolphins 'not counting on' Tannehill if they advance

  Report: Dolphins 'not counting on' Tannehill if they advance The Miami Dolphins are aiming to pull off a massive upset on Sunday with backup quarterback Matt Moore under center, and they may have to do the same in the divisional round of the playoffs if they accomplish that feat. Ryan Tannehill returned to practice this week, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team does not consider him a lock to play should the Dolphins advance.#Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill (knee) practiced Friday.

On another note, how long until the TV offers start pouring in for Smith? They might be already, even if he isn’t interested.
