Ryan Tannehill's agent, Pat Dye, came out today and said that Tannehill's recent injury is a broken foot and that it might require surgery. While the Senior Bowl is definitely out for Tannehill, it now looks like the Combine might be up in the air as well. Though even if he has the surgery he will likely be able to recover in time to throw before the NFL Draft.
Now typically there are multiple injured prospects that miss the All-star games, combine and even their Pro Days, but can regain their status with an individual workout. Usually it might make a prospect slide 5-10 slots at most (depending on how many predraft things they miss), but this injury could affect Tannehill even more. Tannehill had crept into the first round discussion of every major draft publication, and was expected to firm up that status (and potential even rise higher) with a strong Senior Bowl and Combine. Now with him expecting to miss these events, it is likely that he'll be back in the 2nd round discussion, and could be passed by Foles and Weeden.
From my perspective as a guy who's liked Tannehill all year, I'm very disappointed as I looked forward to seeing Tannehill shine at both the Senior Bowl and Combine. On the other hand it could be for the best as a Redskin fan, because now they should be able to grab him in the 2nd round if they miss out on Robert Griffin. I still think he's a great fit for the Redskins, and has the ability to become the franchise QB we are all looking for.
