Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel discussed running back De’Von Achane’s injury in a recent statement. It was mentioned that Achane was pushing to go back into Sunday’s game against the Raiders after hurting his knee. However, the team is still considering whether he will be able to play against the Jets this Friday. This is despite Achane being in his first game back from a stint on injured reserve and hurting the same knee that put him on the list initially.
On Monday, McDaniel stated that Achane is seeking “extra feedback” about the injury and emphasized the team’s desire to ensure they aren’t putting the back at any undue risk by allowing him to return to the field. McDaniel pointed out the importance of not putting a player in a situation where their best performance isn’t up to their own standard. He noted that it is a little complicated because they have to factor in all these concerns.
The Dolphins are taking a cautious approach with Achane’s injury, as they want to make sure he has fully recovered before allowing him to play again. The team will continue to monitor his progress closely and make a decision based on what is best for his health and the team as a whole.
