Breaking News: David Garrard OUT 2-4 weeks with knee injury

The Miami Dolphins were ready to kickoff their preseason tonight….the plan was to have David Garrard as the starting quarterback.  Well, it seems as though those plans have changed.  News started hitting Twitter about 20 minutes ago and then Jay Glazer tweeted this:

So David Garrard could miss the Dolphins season opener at the Texans.  Apparently, Garrard’s contract is only guaranteed if he is on the Dolphins roster for week 1 of the season.  That means the Dolphins could cut him and save about $2.6 million.  The Dolphins would then enter the season with Matt Moore, Ryan Tannehill, and Pat Devlin on their roster.  We’re getting a little ahead of ourselves, but you have to think that this injury puts Garrard status with the Dolphins in jeopardy.

The big question now is: Who will be the Dolphins starting QB on September 9th?  Will the Dolphins go with the veteran Matt Moore?  Or will they turn the reigns over to Ryan Tannehill?  You would have to think that if Tannehill starts the season as the starter, he might never leave that position.  This news comes down just hours before the Dolphins kickoff against the Bucs.  It’ll be interesting to see how the Dolphins split the QB reps tonight….it will be MORE interesting to see how Moore and Tannehill perform!
