What they’re saying
Via NFL Network, Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel said in a postgame news conference that someone landed on Achane’s knee. The team received positive feedback from trainers on Achane’s status. McDaniel added the team wanted to be careful because it was the same knee he previously injured. He chose caution despite Achane’s pleas to return.
