Ryan Tannehill out for Sunday's playoff game against Pittsburgh: The details

The Miami Dolphins will reportedly be without quarterback Ryan Tannehill on Sunday for their AFC Wild Card clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tannehill has been sidelined since the December 11 game versus the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14 with a sprained ACL and MCL in his left knee.

Since taking over for Tannehill late in the Dolphins Week 14 game, Moore has completed 55 of his 87 total pass attempts for 721 yards with 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. This confirms what was expected, and Matt Moore will make a fourth consecutive start for Miami in his first career playoff appearance.

After the Utah defense recovered a fumble, Joe Williams ran 16 yards for a touchdown, and the Utes went up 10-7. Utah boasts some playmakers on defense , namely defensive back Chase Hansen and Defensive end Hunter Dimick.

"Unless something changes drastically here in the next two days or three days, he's going into this thing as the starter", Dolphins coach Adam Gase said of Moore, according to ESPN.

The Dolphins were hopeful that Tannehill would return to practice this week, but confidence in his knee from both the player and the coaches was never enough to actually allow him on the field during drills.

Veteran quarterback T.J. Yates, who was signed in mid-December, continuing to serve as Miami's backup quarterback. Optimism about Tannehill being able to play in the playoffs has lingered over the past week, despite a sprained MCL and a partially torn ACL in his knee, but on Thursday morning logic and caution prevailed.
