Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is coming off a season-ending knee injury, went down with a non-contact injury during practice, Thursday morning. The sixth-year quarterback was already wearing a brace on the knee.

After laying on the ground for about 15 seconds, Tannehill was able to head to the locker room, albeit slowly, without limping, the Miami Herald reported. In that case, Matt Moore should get plenty of snaps with the first-team offense going forward. Tannehill, 29, has completed about 63 percent of his passes in his National Football League career so far, with an overall passer rating of 86.5 and 106 touchdown throws.

The incident occurred during the Dolphins' first 11-on-11 session when Tannehill took the ball from the center and scrambled to the right, running past the first-down marker.

Last season in a game against the Arizona Cardinals, Tannehill suffered an ACL and MCL injury and decided not to have surgery, instead deciding to have stem cell treatment.

Training camp has barely begun and another key player for the Miami Dolphins appears to have suffered an injury.

The eighth overall pick of the 2012 draft, Tannehill completed 67.1 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a career-best 93.5 passer rating in 13 games.
