Tannehill limited with shoulder issue

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was limited during practice on Wednesday due to a shoulder issue, according to the team's injury report.

The Dolphins had seven players limited during practice, but none more important than their starting quarterback.

It is believed Tannehill's shoulder will not keep him from playing in Sunday's home-opener against the Atlanta Falcons.  The shoulder issue, however, will require close scrutiny if Tannehill continues to get hit at the current pace.

Tannehill has been sacked nine times in Miami's first two games.  That means he is on pace to be sacked 72 times this season.

The Dolphins' record for most sacks allowed in one season is 53 set in 1969.    

The other players who were limited in practice were CB Will Davis (toe), QB Pat Devlin (ankle), OLB Koa Misi (knee), CB Dimitri Patterson (groin), CB Jamar Taylor (groin) and S Jimmy Wilson (groin).

Rookie Dion Jordan is managing his nagging shoulder injury again but did not miss practice time on Wednesday. As reported earlier, DT Paul Soliai (knee) and safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) did not practice.
