Dolphins CB Tankersley suffers season-ending ACL tear


Miami Dolphins cornerback Cordrea Tankersley was placed on injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in his knee, coach Adam Gase told reporters on Friday.

Tankersley was injured during Thursday's practice.

"Running with a guy and took a weird step," Gase said of how Tankersley was hurt.

The second-year pro saw action in six games as a reserve this season. He started 11 games last season as a rookie.

"It's a shame because he was pushing to come along and we felt like we had him in a good spot and he was competing," Gase said. "He was practicing better. When a young player gets hurt, it's tough for them to handle it. He'll be back at some point. The way that those ACLs seem to be, guys come back from those."

Starting cornerback Xavien Howard (ankle) also is ailing and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

Also, quarterback Ryan Tannehill (passing shoulder) will his miss fourth straight game. The team said Friday that his injury is to the capsule in the shoulder and doctors determined that rest is a better option than surgery.

Defensive end Charles Harris (calf) also will sit out his fourth straight game.

Receiver Kenny Stills (groin) is listed as questionable and hoping to return after missing one game. Tight end A.J. Derby (foot) is also questionable.
