Tannehill, who missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, reinjured it a week into training camp on August 3.
Tannehill chose to avoid surgery after last season's injury.
An MRI turned up negative after practice, but Tannehill did suffer an ACL & MCL injuries last season on the same knee. The 29-year-old fell to the ground on a non-contact play when his left knee appeared to buckle. In May, Cutler had retired from the National Football League and was hired by Fox Sports as a game analyst, but he is putting that off for a year.
Tannehill will miss the entire 2017 campaign after tearing his ACL in training camp. As with Cutler, Tannehill had enjoyed his best season under the tutelage of Gase, who was hired by Miami past year.
Tannehill completed 67.1 percent of his passes past year, throwing for 2,995 yards, 19 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a career-best 93.5 passer rating in 13 games.
