Dolphins CB Tankersley out for season with torn ACL
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins backup cornerback Cordrea Tankersley has a torn ACL, making him the ninth player on the team to suffer a season-ending injury.
The Dolphins also disclosed Friday that quarterback Ryan Tannehill's injury to his throwing shoulder is a capsule injury. He'll miss his fourth game in a row Sunday against the New York Jets.
Defensive end Charles Harris (calf) was ruled out of the game. Receiver Kenny Stills (groin), cornerback Xavien Howard (ankle) and tight end A.J. Derby (foot) are questionable.
Tankersley had an important role on special teams. He was hurt in practice Thursday with no contact involved.
