Dolphins QB Chad Pennington was hurt on his first snap of the season in 2010, falling on his shoulder. One play later he was taken out of the game, and the injury required surgery, the fourth time Pennington's shoulder has been operated on in his career.

Pennington's offseason has been equally unfortunate. It was reported on Thursday by Chris Mortensen of ESPN that the quarterback needs surgery on his ACL after suffering an injury in a pickup basketball game. Pennington will undergo surgery on April 7.

The way we see it

It was unknown if Pennington was going to play in 2011 before the knee injury, but now it appears unlikely. ACL surgeries generally require months of recovery, and combined with his questionable shoulder, it's unlikely that Pennington will be offered a job by even QB-needy teams.
