This is not typically the place to come for injury updates throughout the week, but for the Miami Dolphins and quarterback Ryan Tannehill, this injury update is perhaps more important than any other recently.

According to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald, Tannehill was limited in practice on Wednesday, which is a good sign for his ability to play on Sunday. He suffered a bruised quad and an injury to his left knee on a tackle by Jets defensive end Calvin Pace.

With the Dolphins still in the thick of the playoff hunt in the AFC, they would love to have their starting quarterback available for this Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Granted, they probably don't need him to be available to pick up the win over the Colts, what with quarterback Matt Moore proving more than serviceable off the bench.

The best thing the Dolphins can do for their playoff hopes is to make sure they are at full health and not cutting any corners to try and get into the postseason.
