Ex-Oregon State QB Matt Moore takes command of Miami Dolphins offense

05 August 2017

Kaepernick generated some interest from the Baltimore Ravens after quarterback Joe Flacco went down with an injured back, but the team appears to have moved away from signing him. Instead of undergoing surgery to fully address the injury, the quarterback opted for stem cell treatment.

While the Dolphins have Matt Moore as a backup, and he performed capably when Tannehill went down a year ago, two other big names have been floated for spots with Miami: Colin Kaepernick and Jay Cutler.

"I've done this before in stepping up and getting ready if need be", Moore said, via James Walker of ESPN. The Dolphins will wait for more clarity on Tannehill before making a decision on adding another quarterback.

Moore, who'll turn 33 Wednesday, said the live-game experience in 2016 has given him more confidence going into the 2017 season. He was in control of the offense, which rallied after struggling to recover from the shock of Tannehill's injury halfway through Thursday's practice.

But to date, the Dolphins did not seek out a quarterback to complete with Moore for the starting spot. "Been kind of going through that, kind of seeing how hard [Tannehill] worked to be back out there and go through the spring - a lot of the things he did to make sure everything was good". He seems to be in good spirits.

Mr Kelly is now the secretary of homeland security and Mr Trump tweeted that he "has been a true star of my administration". Scaramucci, despite this week (or - gulp - maybe because of it) is weirdly ascendant in the White House.

I am not trying to say Moore is a guy who can lead the Dolphins to 10 wins and the playoffs.

When Gase left to take the Miami job, Cutler endured an injury-riddled season and was released in March after eight seasons with the Bears.

Tannehill watched a portion of practice from inside the practice facility with his left knee in a brace and propped up on a chair, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel. "There are four main ligaments in the knee - like the four legs of a chair If a one leg is a little off, the chair rocks but is usable, but if a second leg is damaged, it becomes unusable".

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport added on Friday morning that the Dolphins could end up fully repairing the knee with rest and rehab.
