               === Report: Dolphins' Tannehill has knee bruise ===
 
 Miami,  FL  (Sports  Network)  -  Miami  Dolphins  starting  quarterback  Ryan
 Tannehill  has  been diagnosed with a  bruised quadriceps and a bone bruise in
 his left knee after exiting Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
 
 According  to  the Miami  Herald,  an  MRI taken  Monday  did  not reveal  any
 structural damage, though the rookie first-round pick is still in considerable
 discomfort  and his  status  for  this weekend's  matchup  at Indianapolis  is
 currently in question.
 
 "I saw him walking around a bit and I know he's fairly optimistic, but we just
 have  to wait and see," said Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin during his Monday
 press conference.
 
 Tannehill  was hurt on a sack by the Jets' Calvin Pace on Miami's second drive
 of its 30-9 victory over its AFC East rival at MetLife Stadium.
 
 Matt Moore, who started 12 times for the Dolphins last season, would take over
 under center in the event Tannehill is unable to go. The veteran threw for 131
 yards  and a touchdown with no turnovers on 11-of-19 passing after taking over
 in Sunday's win.
