717s don't dump fuel, do they? Aren't they burning off fuel?

A pilot on MSNBC suggested that it could have been a blown tire at take off, or door or landing gear problem. It can only be determined when back on the ground. Apparently the lights for the right side gear positions are showing a problem. It is apparently a full flight 86 pax/4 crew (2 pilots/2 f/a's). It is a being id'ed as a flight to MKE. It is a 717 (so at least a recent production a/c). Let's hope that this ends up as good as the JetBlue flight into LAX in September.
