Ryan Tannehill showed some leadership, midway through the Dolphins’ practice Sunday the QB yelled at rookie Kalen Ballage and kicked him out of the huddle after the running back missed a blocking assignment that resulted in a clean sack by Charles Harris.

Tannehill was not available to speak to the media after practice. Ballage didn’t take the chewing out personally and said he understands he still has things to learn about the Dolphins’ scheme.
Tannehill needs to step up this year, his time in Miami has to be running out. Granted he’s coming off an ACL injury, but still, time to put up or shut up.
“You can’t kick a guy out of the huddle all the time. You can’t shut it down all the time and have big discussions,” Gase said. “It’s a feel, timing, when is the right time to say, ‘You know what? We’re not right here. We need somebody else in here.’ He was right today with what he did.”
