BREAKING: Ryan Tannehill Leaves Practice With Apparent Injury

  BREAKING: Ryan Tannehill Leaves Practice With Apparent Injury Cross your fingers Dolphins fans, there could be some bad juju going down. After a surprise season last year, Miami snuck in to the playoffs as the final Wild Card in the AFC. However, they did so without their star QB Ryan Tannehill leading the way, as he suffered an ACL injury back in Week 14.

He immediately fell to the ground clutching his knee and had to be helped off the field. Harper entered Saturday’s game with a .327 average and 29 home runs for the NL East-leading Nationals. His 5.0 WAR is fifth in all of baseball.

(AP Photo/Nick Wass) WASHINGTON (AP) Bryce Harper has left the Washington Nationals' game against the San Francisco Giants with an apparent left knee injury.

While running out a ground ball to the right side of the infield in the first inning Friday night, Harper stepped on first base, avoided contact with first baseman Ryder Jones and fell to the ground. Harper clutched at his left knee after going down and was attended to by trainers.

Harper put no weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field by hitting coach Rick Schu and head athletic trainer Paul Lessard.

Harper, the 2015 NL MVP, is hitting .327 with 26 home runs and 81 RBIs this season.

The game began just after 10 p.m. following a 3-hour rain delay. Harper was replaced by Andrew Stevenson.
