Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores gave an update on defensive lineman Raekwon Davis after he left Sunday’s Week 1 win over the New England Patriots with an injury.

Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores said he doesn’t know the severity of defensive tackle Raekwon Davis’ injury and made clear that Austin Jackson remains the team’s starting left tackle,” the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson wrote.

“Davis left the game in the first quarter, limping with what appeared to be a knee injury. He returned wearing a brace, sprinted along the sideline, and looked ready to go back in the game.

“But Flores suggested the Dolphins didn’t feel comfortable putting him back in the game without doing more tests.”

The team seems to be taking a cautious approach with Davis. The Dolphins surely want him to be fully healthy for the rest of the season.

Miami picked up the win regardless to take the top spot in the AFC East.

Davis, a second-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, had 40 tackles and one tackle for loss as a rookie. He appeared in all 16 games, making 12 starts.

The Dolphins will face the Buffalo Bills in another AFC East showdown in Week 2, but it is unclear if Davis will be able to play in that matchup.
