healthy.Tannehill, a starter since his rookie - elaine95 - 11-29-2019

MIAMI GARDENS http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-ryan-fitzpatrick-jersey , Fla. (AP) — When John Isner first got to town for his Miami Open title defense, he went for a practice session at the old tournament site in Key Biscayne instead of the new location at the stadium used by the NFL’s Dolphins.It wasn’t that he wasn’t sure where to go, of course. Nor was he trying to soak up the good vibes at the place where he won an ATP Masters 1000 trophy for the first time.“It was just about convenience. Close to my hotel. I just wanted to break a sweat and went out there. It was pretty weird, actually. Kind of quiet. The place still has its allure to it, but it definitely seems different,” Isner said Tuesday. “We’re all used to pulling into that parking lot and the place is bustling. Wasn’t like that.”There wasn’t much bustle at the new-look Miami Open on the initial day of scheduled main-draw play, which was completely wiped out because of rain throughout Tuesday.They’ll try again to get started Wednesday; No. 9 Isner and other seeded men such as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer won’t play before Friday thanks to first-round byes.Isner, 10-6 this season, arrived at the hard-court tournament in 2018 with a 1-6 mark. He proceeded to win six matches in a row, three against men ranked in the top six.“I do know that, look, odds are, I probably won’t defend this title,” he said with a chuckle after touring the Humane Society of Greater Miami with Alexander Zverev, the runner-up at the Miami Open a year ago. “At the same time, it is cool coming back as the defending champion of a tournament of this magnitude. Never been in this situation before. Just looking forward to it. No pressure. I don’t look at it as, ‘Oh Womens Chase Allen Jersey , I’m going to lose a bunch of points.’ You can’t look at it like that. It’s just another tournament you want to do well in.”Isner says his performance in Florida gave him a boost that helped him later in the season, including his semifinal showing at Wimbledon in July, the best he’d ever done at a Grand Slam tournament.So did that carry over into this season, too?“Unfortunately, I feel like it has a shelf life,” said Isner, who lost to Reilly Opelka in an all-American matchup in the first round of the Australian Open in January. “Every player is different, but I feel like, for me, when you start the new year, everything is reset. Even if you played fantastic at the end of the year last year, you have two months off, and everything resets.” DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Tannehill dropped back to pass and the pocket quickly collapsed, making it just like old times.An onrushing end merely waved as he went by because Wednesday’s drills involved no contact, which spared Tannehill a blow. Instead, he scooted away on his reconstructed left knee toward the sideline and encountered a linebacker Davon Godchaux Jersey , who also pulled up at the last moment.The hits will come soon enough, but for now Tannehill is healthy and optimistic about leading a turnaround by the Miami Dolphins.He’s practicing this week for the first time since a torn left ACL in training camp ended his 2017 season before it began. A serious injury to the same knee forced him to miss the final four games in 2016, meaning he hasn’t played in nearly 18 months.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins sign hometown WR Allen Hurns to 1-year contractNew Dolphins coach Brian Flores has his own daily workout at training campDolphins assistant coach Jim Caldwell takes leave of absence to address health issuesTwo-time Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones rejoins Dolphins after skipping voluntary practicesDolphins QBs Josh Rosen, Ryan Fitzpatrick embrace battle for No. 1 job“It was a long year, some dark times,” Tannehill said, speaking publicly for the first time since he was hurt last August.Tannehill has received medical clearance without limitations and isn’t even wearing a knee brace this week, although he plans to wear one in games.“It’s purely to prevent what started the whole train wreck,” he said.Tannehill said his return to practice stirred painful memories of watching workouts last year while sitting inside the team complex, his injured leg in a brace and propped on a chair.“It feels amazing to be back out there,” he said. “It has been a lot of work to put a helmet back on and step on the grass again. I was just telling the guys, I can remember sitting in the cafeteria looking through the glass like a little kid that’s not allowed to go outside and play.”Also back were linebacker Raekwon McMillan and cornerback Tony Lippett, both of whom missed the entire 2017 season because of injuries. The entire roster was on hand, although 35-year-old running back Frank Gore was on the field only briefly and won’t be involved in drills much this spring to keep him healthy.Tannehill, a starter since his rookie season in 2012, has never played in the postseason. But he and the Dolphins are optimistic he can regain the form he showed in 2016, when he enjoyed the best stretch of his career and helped put the team in playoff contention before his injury.“I feel like I kind of went on a run there http://www.thedolphinslockerroom.com/authentic-albert-wilson-jersey ,” Tannehill said. “I felt like I was finally starting to play really good football, being in command of the offense and understanding what we were trying to accomplish with every play call.”With Jay Cutler as an emergency replacement for Tannehill, the Dolphins slipped to 6-10 last year. Gase is so confident about Tannehill that they didn’t draft a quarterback last month.“It’s great to have him back out there,” Gase said. “As long as we don’t have a setback, I feel good. We’re in a good place. I’ve seen him move around just as well as he ever has.”Newcomer Josh Sitton, a four-time Pro Bowl guard, offered an endorsement of his new QB after just two practices together. Sitton took particular note of one strike Tannehill threw.“He rolled out after a play action and was running to his left,” Sitton said. “I thought, `That’s pretty impressive.'”Tannehill didn’t miss a game in his first four NFL seasons, enduring 212 sacks behind a leaky line without serious injury. He said he’s not worried about his knee holding up, and won’t be thinking about it on the field.The knee probably won’t be tested with contact until the preseason in August.“I’m never eager to get hit,” Tannehill said with a chuckle. “I’d be sadistic. But I don’t think about it any different than I would any other season going into a new season. It’s a physical game, and I love that.”
