The Miami Dolphins defeated the New York Jets 30-9 on Sunday but suffered some injuries in the process. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill left the game in the first quarter following a sack and did not return. He has injuries to his left quad and knee, according to the team.

Tannehill was replaced by Matt Moore, who finished 11-for-19 for 131 yards and one touchdown. Tannehill was 2-for-5 passing for 18 yards before suffering the injuries. He said afterward that he could have gone back in the game if it were an emergency situation, but with Moore playing well, there was no need. Tannehill is optimistic about being able to play next week.

The Dolphins also lost linebacker Karlos Dansby and defensive tackles Randy Starks and Tony McDaniel to injuries during the first half. Dansby injured an elbow but was able to return later in the game. Starks appeared to suffer a leg injury, and McDaniel -- who was inserted as Starks' replacement -- was hurt shortly after that.
