Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel is still unsure if running back De’Von Achane will be able to play in Friday’s game against the Jets after hurting his knee in Sunday’s game against the Raiders. Achane was in his first game back from injured reserve and hurt the same knee that originally put him on the list. McDaniel said on Monday that Achane is seeking “extra feedback” about the injury and that the team wants to ensure they are not putting him at any undue risk by putting him on the field. McDaniel added that they don’t want to put Achane in a situation where his best isn’t up to his own standard.
During Sunday’s game against the Raiders, Achane was pushing to go back in after hurting his knee, but the team is still determining if he will be able to play against the Jets. He had one carry and one catch before leaving the game. McDaniel emphasized the need to factor in all the complexities of the situation before making a decision about Achane’s ability to play in the upcoming game. The team wants to ensure that they are not putting Achane in a situation where his best performance might not be up to his own standard.
