Miami Dolphins rookie running back De’Von Achane suffered an injury in the 3rd quarter of Saturday’s preseason game against the Houston Texans and was carted off the field and taken to the locker room.

The nature and extent of Achane’s injury is currently unclear, although he seemed to be grabbing his right shoulder as he left the field. However, it’s worth noting that as per the TV cameras and Marcel Louis-Jacques on Twitter, Achane left the field “under his own power”, and entered the locker room on the cart for further evaluation.

The injury is a big blow to the Dolphins’ offense, as well as Achane himself, who has shown a real burst of energy throughout preseason so far.

Achane, a 3rd-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, was primed to be a key contributor to Miami’s offense this season. The Dolphins currently have five other running backs on the roster, in Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., Salvon Ahmed, Myles Gaskin, and Chris Brooks.

More information will be relayed to our readers as it becomes available.
