The Miami Dolphins don't appear to have any plans to move on from Ryan Tannehill in the near future, but they made a surprising move on Wednesday. The team announced they have promoted quarterback Logan Thomas from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game. To make room for Thomas, the Dolphins waived offensive lineman Jeff Linkenbach.

Thomas is a second-year player out of Virginia Tech and was a fourth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2014, but hasn't seen the field much. He's only attempted nine passes, completing one of them for an 81-yard touchdown.

He's obviously not going to replace Tannehill, but the Dolphins could view him as a future backup going forward with Matt Moore set to become a free agent after this season.
