Adam Gase was combative Sunday when asked about quarterback Ryan Tannehill's health after the starter was a surprise scratch from Miami's Week 6 overtime win over the Chicago Bears.
On Monday, he let his guard down a bit, telling reporters Tannehill (shoulder) is day to day with an injury that was initially termed as "soreness" but has since proven to require more rest. The timeline sounded vague, but Gase said he was confident Tannehill would play again in 2018.
"It's really going to be about how he feels," Gase said of Tannehill on Monday.
Brocktober could continue if Tannehill's condition doesn't improve in the next week.
Additonally, Gase wouldn't elaborate on the status of veteran defensive end Cameron Wake (knee).
Elsewhere in injury news Monday:
- He didn't mention it after the game Sunday, but Browns rookie Baker Mayfield did indeed twist his ankle during Cleveland's 38-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The injury limited Mayfield's effectiveness and created soreness and a need for treatment over the next week, but the quarterback shouldn't miss time, Rapoport reported.
- Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn told reporters running back Devonta Freeman (groin), who was inactive this past Sunday, likely won't play next Monday versus the New York Giants. Quinn said he's "hopeful" that wide receivers Mohamed Sanu (hip) and Calvin Ridley (ankle) are OK. Rapoport reported an MRI on Ridley's ankle came back pretty clean and the injury will require just rehab and monitoring.
Kicker Matt Bryant will not play next week after suffering a strained hamstring in the Falcons' Week 6 win.
- New York Jets safety Marcus Maye is expected to miss time with a broken thumb, per Rapoport. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss the next 3-4 weeks because of a high ankle sprain, a source told Rapoport.
- Titans linebacker Derrick Morgan (shoulder) will miss a few weeks, and guard Quinton Spain (shoulder) is day-to-day, according to coach Mike Vrabel.
- Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is not optimistic that Tavon Austin (groin) will be able to play this coming Sunday at Washington.
