Ryan Tannehill is returning to the field.

The 30-year-old quarterback told the Palm Beach Post he plans to be under center Thursday in the Dolphins preseason opener against the Buccaneers. The team did not indicate how long Tannehill will play.  

Tannehill last appeared in a game Dec. 11, 2016. Tannehill tore his ACL in a practice last August and missed all of 2017.

The Dolphins originally selected Tannehill out of Texas A&M with the eighth pick in the 2012 draft. He has thrown for 106 touchdowns and 66 interceptions in 77 career starts with Miami.

The Dolphins finished last season with a 6-10 record and missed the playoffs with Jay Cutler and Matt Moore under center.
