Tannehill took a hit on the shoulder early in the third quarter of Sunday's win at Indianapolis when he was hit from behind on a sack and lost a fumble, but he finished the game.
His limited status in practice Wednesday may have been only precautionary; six other Dolphins were also limited as the team prepared for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Defensive tackle Paul Soliai (left knee) and safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) sat out practice.
Rookie backup cornerbacks Will Davis (toe) and Jamar Taylor (groin), who missed the first two games, returned to practice this week and were limited Wednesday. Starting cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) was also limited.
