Miami Dolphins running back De’Von Achane has gone into the medical tent during Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders, per Daniel Oyefusi. This was Achane’s first game back from injured reserve. He was on IR due to a knee injury sustained in Week 5, so he could have re-aggravated it early on Sunday.

Achane was only able to play a handful of snaps before leaving with an injury. He had one carry for a single yard and brought in his lone target for four more yards. While Achane is sidelined, he will be replaced by Raheem Mostert. The veteran running back has experienced a career resurgence this season. He has 605 yards and 11 touchdowns through nine games. Mostert has added 151 yards and two additional touchdowns through the air. With seven games left, Mostert is already having a career season.

De’Von Achane injury updates

Update: Head coach Mike McDaniel said that the decision not to let Achane return to the field was largely precautionary as the discomfort was with the same knee that put him on injured reserve.

Update: Achane never returned to the game in Week 11. We will likely get more information about his injury status soon, but the best-case scenario is that he just tweaked his old injury and can get back on the field next week against the New York Jets.

Update: Achane has returned to the sideline, but has yet to re-enter the game.

Update: Achane has gone back to the locker room for further evaluation, per Chris Perkins.

Update: Achane is considered questionable to return, and he has been diagnosed with a knee injury, per Cameron Wolfe.
