The Miami Dolphins are playing the Dallas Cowboys in a huge Week 16 matchup. Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert was trying to get into the endzone but was tacked by Dallas, and then a different defender landed awkwardly on his ankle. He was clearly in pain and was tended to by trainers before leaving the field.

Mostert had nine carries for 31 yards before getting hurt. If he misses any time due to the injury, rookie running back De’Von Achane will take over in the backfield for him. Mostert has been a beast this season and is having a career year. He has played in 14 games and has 966 yards with 18 touchdowns on the grounds. Mostert has added 171 yards an two additional touchdowns through the air. Achane is certainly a talented rookie, but Mostert sustaining an injury would be a big blow to Miami’s offense.

Update: Mostert has gone into the blue medical tent for further evaluation.
