    According to Albert Breer of SI.com, the league fined the Miami Dolphins $30,000 and coach Adam Gase $15,000 for the handling of the Week Six injury report regarding quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

    The fine came from the team’s listing of Tannehill as a full participant in practice on a Thursday, even though Tannehill missed some of the first-team reps.

    Per Breer, the Dolphins and Gase weren’t fined for failing to downgrade Tannehill from questionable to doubtful due to a shoulder injury, in advance of the team’s decision to make him inactive for the game against the Bears. That would seem to the the more obvious — and problematic — violation of the rules.

    So if he sits out a couple of reps because he went to the toilet is that now considered a partial participant?

    Only for the Dolphins. Gronk can miss the flight and still be listed as questionable and no one bats an eye.

    Simply another example of the league protecting a certain team, and allowing an unfair advantage.

    They can and probably will appeal, although it probably makes more sense just to pay the fine. I think it's funny how the NFL acts like they're an elitist homeowner's association that has to penalize folks for every little thing to keep the neighborhood from falling apart.

    Where was this energy when Tom Brady spent decades on the injury list as probable?
