Description: It's believed that free agent QB Chad Pennington's chances of landing a back-up job improve the longer the lockout drags on. SOURCE: NATIONAL FOOTBALL POST
Insight: Still recovering from a torn ACL, Pennington's health could be back to 100 percent if the lockout goes deep into the summer. He won't get a chance to start, but even a backup job would be a better outlook than what he was facing back in April.

Description: Free agent QB Chad Pennington hasn't ruled out playing football in 2011, despite recently tearing his ACL while playing a basketball game. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Not going to happen. A player coming off a torn ACL takes at least a full year to recover. If/when free agency starts, teams won't come calling. Pennington has likely played his last down as an NFL player.

Description: Pennington will require surgery after suffering an ACL tear in a basketball game.
Insight: So, after four shoulder surgeries and this, is it finally time to consider Pennington's career officially over? (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Free agent QB Chad Pennington has torn his ACL after suffering the injury in a basketball game. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Any chance Pennington had at catching on with another team this summer went right down the toilet. It usually takes a full year for a player to fully recover from this type of injury, so Pennington will be watching the 2011 season from home.

Description: The Dolphins are still not expected to bring back free agent QB Chad Pennington. SOURCE: MIAMI HERALD
Insight: We aren't sure why they would even consider it after Pennington underwent a fourth shoulder surgery. There was a rumor the Titans might consider him, but we doubt it. We wouldn't be surprised to see Pennington sit in 2011 and beyond.
1/26/2011 10:42:00 AM
Description: There is still the possibility that the Dolphins re-sign free agent QB Chad Pennington. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: It all depends on how well Pennington's shoulder is rehabbing after undergoing another surgery. The worst fear for a Dolphins fan would be the team re-signing Pennington and letting him duke it out with Chad Henne for the starting job in 2011.

Description: There is speculation that the Titans may have interest in QB Chad Pennington this offseason. SOURCE: NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN
Insight: After undergoing a fourth shoulder operation, Pennington says he wants to continue playing if he can. But going to the Titans doesn't make much sense. They already have an aging player in Kerry Collins who actually knows the system. The team should look at younger alternatives if they decide to go the free-agent route.
11/15/2010 12:02:00 PM
Description: Pennington attempted just two passes on Sunday before leaving with what is reportedly a separated right (throwing) shoulder.
Insight: He is expected to miss the rest of this season, and this likely ends Pennington's NFL career. He'll turn 35 before the 2011 season starts and has started more than half a season just twice since 2004. (RapidDraft.com)
11/14/2010 6:19:00 PM
Description: The recent injury Dolphins QB Chad Pennington suffered to his throwing shoulder against the Titans could knock him out for the season. SOURCE: TWITTER
Insight: Considering this injury was to the same shoulder that had caused him a lot of problems in the past, we may have seen the last of Pennington as a Dolphins quarterback and also as a quarterback in the NFL. After three surgeries on the same shoulder, he just can't hold up anymore. He is a free agent in 2011.
11/14/2010 2:22:00 PM
Description: Dolphins QB Chad Pennington was taken to the locker room with an apparent shoulder injury.
Insight: It's said to be the same shoulder that had given Pennington problems in the past. Pennington's arm hit the back of Jake Long, which prompted him to leave after just two plays. His return is questionable.
11/10/2010 2:34:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have promoted QB Chad Pennington to the starting lineup against the Titans. SOURCE: USA TODAY
Insight: Tony Sparano announced the decision during a Wednesday press conference, but there were rumblings of a change a couple weeks ago. Henne's 2010 season has been a disappointment after throwing more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (8). Before stepping down from his front office position, Bill Parcells said Henne's slow development was one of the biggest disappointments he had seen while with the team. Don't expect Pennington to be a big fantasy commodity. We expect more of a ground game going forward, with Pennington playing game manager. And with Pennington's weak arm, Brandon Marshall's fantasy value could take a little bit of a dip.
11/10/2010 2:03:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins have announced that Pennington will take over for Chad Henne as the starting quarterback beginning in Week 10.
Insight: Pennington opened 2009 as the starter but threw for just one touchdown and two interceptions before a Week 3 injury ushered in Henne. Pennington has proved a weak-armed but pretty efficient passer in his career ... not a strong fantasy option but someone worth turning to in a pinch. (RapidDraft.com)
8/5/2010 6:42:00 PM
Description: According to coach Tony Sparano, Chad Pennington had a "revelation" a few days ago when he realized his surgically repaired shoulder was back to 100 percent.
Insight: Pennington will have a bit of fantasy value if he wins the backup job, so keep tabs on this situation as it develops. (RapidDraft.com)
8/3/2010 11:02:00 PM
Description: Chad Pennington (shoulder) is splitting second-team reps with Tyler Thigpen in Dolphins camp.
Insight: If his shoulder can hang on for one more season, Pennington?s intelligence and experience would allow him to edge out Thigpen. (RapidDraft.com)
6/10/2010 8:28:00 PM
Description: The South Florida Sun-Sentinel suggests Chad Pennington (shoulder) could be stashed on the PUP list to start the regular season.
Insight: Poor Chad?s spirit is willing, but his flesh is indeed weak. A comeback to fantasy relevance is looking unlikely at this point. (SportsBuff.com)
6/1/2010 8:32:00 PM
Description: Chad Pennington (shoulder) has been cleared to throw passes at Dolphins Organized Team Activities.
Insight: Pennington will have to overtake Tyler Thigpen to win the backup job. However, if his arm is healed, he brings so much cerebral energy to the game that he shouldn?t have much trouble doing so. (Sportsbuff.com)
5/30/2010 2:09:00 PM
Description: Chad Pennington (shoulder) has played the role of spectator and mentor for the majority of offseason practices.
Insight: Pennington is such a gamer that you can't help but root for him. However, the reality is that his shoulder issues could very easily force him off the roster this year. (SportsBuff.com)
5/8/2010 11:07:00 PM
Description: Chad Pennington (shoulder) expects to be 100 percent by training camp.
Insight: Tyler Thigpen is also in the mix as the Dolphins' backup, but Pennington has made an entire career out of beating the odds. Expect him to win the job and have decent fantasy value if Henne suffers an injury. (sportsBuff.com)
3/6/2010 11:58:00 AM
Description: The Dolphins re-signed the veteran to a one year contract worth $2.5 million.
Insight: It's a good move for the Dolphins as they need the experienced presence behind Chad Henne and Pennington knows the system like the back of his hand. He may still have fantasy relevance this season if he is dealt, however, so he might be worth a stash on your bench. (SportsBuff.com)
3/1/2010 10:21:00 PM
Description: The Dolphins are unsure about wanting Pennington back this season.
Insight: He's a great backup, but Chad Henne doesn't need to be embroiled in a controversy at this point. There are other, more logical places for Pennington to finish his career in. (SportsBuff.com)
