The Miami Dolphins are opening the 21-day practice window for rookie running back De’Von Achane, head coach Mike McDaniel said Monday.
Achane landed on injured reserve on Oct. 11 after sustaining a knee injury in a 31-16 win over the New York Giants on Oct. 8.
He has missed the required four games and could be activated to the 53-man roster at any time.
The Dolphins (6-3) return from their bye week on Sunday to face the visiting Las Vegas Raiders (5-5).
Achane, 22, was leading the AFC with 460 rushing yards when he went on IR. He is averaging 12.1 yards per rush attempt and has nine catches for 67 yards and seven total touchdowns (five rushing, two receiving) in four games.
The Dolphins selected Achane in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M.
In his absence, Raheem Mostert has rushed for 291 yards and four touchdowns in Miami’s past four games.
