Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will miss a fourth straight game with a shoulder injury Sunday against the New York Jets, head coach Adam Gase said Wednesday.

Gase reiterated that surgery has not been brought up as a potential option, calling Tannehill's recovery "a rest-type thing." He added that Tannehill has been able to throw with trainers while being monitored closely.

Earlier this week, Gase said it was "a question of how much power he can put behind the ball."

Tannehill, 30, has thrown for 972 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions in five games this season.

Brock Osweiler, who has thrown for 895 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions in three starts, will get the nod for the fourth time on Sunday. The Dolphins beat the Jets 20-12 in the teams' first meeting, in East Rutherford, N.J., in Week 2.

Miami has lost four of five games since a 3-0 start to fall to 4-4.

Also on Wednesday, the Dolphins announced the signings of defensive linemen Sylvester Williams and Ziggy Hood and the activation of linebacker Mike Hull off injured reserve.

Williams, who was released by the Detroit Lions last week, and Hood will provide depth for a struggling run defense that lost starter Vincent Taylor to injured reserve on Tuesday. Hood, whose signing was reported Tuesday, was released by the Washington Redskins two weeks ago.

Hull went down in the preseason opener with a sprained MCL. He was eligible to be recalled from IR after missing the first eight weeks.
