Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has made progress in his rehabilitation from a throwing shoulder injury, but the timing of his return remains uncertain.

Coach Adam Gase said Monday he didn’t know whether Tannehill will participate fully in practice this week. Gase hasn’t ruled out Tannehill returning Sunday at Indianapolis, but that appears to be a long shot.

While Tannehill is now throwing the ball 50 yards in side sessions, his shoulder stamina is still a concern, and the Dolphins are trying to avoid any setbacks.

Brock Osweiler has gone 2-3 starting for Tannehill. The Dolphins are 5-5 and had a bye last week.

Miami will place receiver Jakeem Grant on injured reserve with a lower leg injury. Grant ranks second in the NFL in both kickoff returns and punt returns.
