Tannehill Returns to Practice
Ryan Tannehill returned to limited practice this week just in time for the playoffs. While he will not play in the Wild Card round against the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend, it could open the door for him to return for the divisional round of the playoffs if the Dolphins can take care of the Steelers once again. Miami began their amazing 9-1 run against these very Steelers and the team is very confident they will be moving on with Matt Moore under Center.
Tickets for the game are still selling at a brisk pace and the home field Steelers have a great advantage in the weather. It has been balmy in Florida all week while Pittsburgh is freezing. The Dolphins have gone so far as to freeze footballs for Kicker Andrew Franks.
“They definitely become hard in the colder weather,” Special Teams Coordinator Darren Rizzi said. “But there’s only so much you can do in this kind of weather to practice. We actually put balls in the freezer, believe it or not. But you bring them out and five minutes later they’ve thawed out.”
