The Miami Dolphins and their league-leading offense are set to be bolstered by the return of a special rookie running back in Week 11.
De’Von Achane is being activated off injured reserve and will take the field on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders, the team announced.
The 22-year-old missed the last four weeks due to a knee injury he sustained during a 31-16 win over the New York Giants in Week 5. He attempted to keep playing with the injury, but the Dolphins decided to place him on injured reserve ahead of Week 6.
Miami opened the 21-day practice window for Achane on Monday, Nov. 13. He seems poised to make an immediate impact, considering that the league was barely able to catch up to his production while he was out.
He’s still tied for the league lead in carries over 20 yards with six. He’s joined by Minnesota Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs, Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss and teammate Raheem Mostert. Achane also tops the NFL in carries over 40 yards with four.
