Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill told reporters Wednesday that he will be the starter on Sunday in London, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com

Tannehill's announcement came shortly after coach Joe Philbin continued to refuse to name Tannehill the starter.

Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports that Tannehill said Philbin not naming him as starter has caused a distraction in the locker room, and wishes the coach handled things differently. 

Tannehill has started every regular-season game for the Dolphins since being drafted in 2012. Last season, he threw for 3,913 yards, 24 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. 

Through three games this season, the 26-year-old has four touchdowns and two interceptions across 624 yards. Philbin has remained noncommittal about saying that Tannehill will remain the starter this weekend.

Tannehill's backup is Matt Moore, who appeared in one game last season.
