The Miami Dolphins activated standout rookie running back De'Von Achane off injured reserve on Saturday, and he is slated to play against the visiting Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

Achane missed the past four games due to a knee injury. He was placed on IR after rushing for 151 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries against the New York Giants in Week 5.

Achane's 21-day practice window began Monday, and he was a limited participant in practice all week before being listed as questionable Friday.

Achane has scored seven touchdowns (five rushing, two receiving) in four games for Miami and has rushed for 460 yards with a sparkling 12.1 per carry.

He gained 455 rushing yards in a three-game span prior to going on IR. Achane had 203 of them against the Denver Broncos in Week 3.

The 22-year-old Achane was a third-round pick out of Texas AM.

The Dolphins ruled out guards Robert Hunt (hamstring) and Robert Jones (knee) and wide receiver Chase Claypool (knee) on Friday.
