Just because Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was upset that he only caught one pass against the Cleveland Browns doesn't mean that quarterback Ryan Tannehill will force the football in his direction against the Indianapolis Colts.

“I’m going to play the quarterback position the way coaches install the plays; I’m going to go through the reads just like they install it,” Tannehill told reporters. “We’re going to try to get him the ball when he’s in the play, but we’re not going to force him the ball.”

Tannehill indicated he's spoken with Wallace, who was signed to a $60 million contract this offseason and everything has been ironed out.

“Mike was obviously in a tough spot at the end of that game but everything is 100 percent normal in the locker room,” Tannehill said. “He’s great, practicing hard every day, joking around. He’s his same old self. He’s looking forward to getting back on the field this week.”
