The Miami Dolphins reportedly aren’t expected to have rookie running back De’Von
Achane available for Friday afternoon’s game against the New York Jets. 

Achane, who missed four games earlier this season with a knee injury, aggravated his knee injury in Week 11, and he is not expected to be ready to go on the quick turnaround for Friday’s contest. 

The Dolphins will likely feature veteran Raheem Mostert with Achane out of the lineup. The rookie has been great this season, but this will be the sixth game he’s going to miss due to injury.

Raheem Mostert anytime touchdown scorer

Mostert leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns this season (11), and he’s likely going to get the bulk of the carries for the Dolphins on Friday. 

The veteran has a ton of speed, and he scored five times in four games with Achane on injured reserve earlier this season. 

There’s no doubt that Mostert is the top backfield option on Friday.

When is De’Von Achane coming back?
