Dolphins, Gase fined for violating injury policy

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, through similarly gritted teeth, said Wednesday everything is not fine, which is why he's focused on the Indianapolis game in three weeks. Gase, the former Bears offensive coordinator who is in his third year as the Dolphins' head coach, was fined $15,000.

The team was fined for listing Tannehill as a full participant on the practice report for Thursday, October 11 when he should have been listed as limited, sources told Rapoport.

The NFL's investigation centered on why Tannehill was never downgraded to "doubtful" before missing the first of four games he's been sidelined because of the capsule injury in his right shoulder. He hasn't played since.

The Dolphins and Gase pretty much received a slap on the wrist for their part in not reporting Tannehill's injury correctly.

Another divisive issue has been a statue being unveiled Saturday of the late President Lech Kaczynski in a central Warsaw square. This year, Poland is celebrating the centenary of its independence, gained in 1918 at the end of World War I.

His replacement, Brock Osweiler, beat the Bears 31-28.

Tannehill has already been ruled out for this Sunday's game in Green Bay, meaning he will have missed 25 of the Dolphins' last 30 games, including playoffs, due to injury.

Dolphins safety Reshad Jones, through gritted teeth, said Wednesday that everything is fine.

The Dolphins (5-4) plan to rest Tannehill for another two weeks with the goal of having him healthy enough to start the November 25 road game against the Indianapolis Colts.
