Report: Former Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill has torn ACL

Former Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill’s fifth NFL looks to be over after the Miami Dolphins signal-caller was injured on a hit Sunday by Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell.

Tannehill was in the middle of what many consider the best season of his career in Miami, having thrown for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

At 8-5 on the year, the Dolphins are in the playoff hunt, but have little margin for error with division foes New York, Buffalo and New England to end the season. In Tannehill’s absence, Miami will turn to veteran backup Matt Moore.
