The Miami Dolphins QB is iffy to play against the Chicago Bears.
The Chicago Bears head to Miami this weekend to face the Dolphins hoping to push their record to 4-1. Winning on the road in the NFL is never easy and the Bears won’t be certain what Dolphins team they’ll be facing. The team that started off great or the team that struggled the last two weeks.
The Dolphins got off to a 3-0 start, but have dropped their last two (both road games). They were throttled by the New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals beat them comfortably.
The Dolphins return home and looking to keep their winning record, buy they might have to do it without their starting quarterback.
On Friday, Ryan Tannehill was a surprise addition to Miami’s injury report.
Tannehill is questionable, not doubtful, that’s obviously a very important distinction. Being that he is on the injury report, especially being it’s out of nowhere, there is a chance that Tannehill doesn’t play, but odds are he will be starting the football game.

If the Bears continue to get pressure and get Tannehill to the ground, an injured shoulder could force him out of the game. If that’s the case, Brock Osweiler will be under center for Maimi.
The Bears defense, whether through injury or ineffectiveness, have made a habit this year of knocking the starting quarterback out of the game.
In week one, DeShone Kizer had to sub for part of the game for Aaron Rodgers after the Green Bay Packers star QB injured his knee. In week three, Josh Rosen finished the game for Sam Bradford. In week four, Jameis Winston played the second half after Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled in the first half.
Could the Bears face two quarterbacks again on Sunday? If Tannehill’s shoulder forces him out of the game, that doesn’t bode well for what was already an uninspiring offense against an elite defense.
