Injury Turns Into Concern For Dolphins’ Tannehill

Dolphins_Ryan_Tannehill_2013Ryan Tannehill said Tuesday that the 24 sacks he has sustained this season have not taken a toll. His body said otherwise.

The Miami Dolphins quarterback has a softball-sized welt on his back. He has rug burn on his throwing wrist.

And even he acknowledges that it’s bound to get worse if the protection doesn’t get better.

“Obviously, we want to get it fixed and I don’t want to be taking that many hits,” Tannehill said. “You’re more susceptible to injuries when you’re taking that many hits.
