Miami Dolphins rookie running back Kenyan Drake was having a solid day of practice on Friday until he pulled up during a run at the end of the practice, limping off the field after ripping off his helmet and spiking the ball:

Drake was the Dolphins’ third-round draft pick this year, coming to the team out of Alabama. He gained 1,495 yards rushing in four seasons at Alabama, carrying the ball 233 times for a 6.4 yards per carry average, scoring 18 touchdowns. He also caught 46 passes for 570 yards with 4 touchdowns and returned 19 kicks for a 26.6 yard average with one touchdown. He is expected to serve as the third running back on the roster this year, behind Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster. Drake could be battling Daniel Thomas, Isaiah Pead, and Damien Williams for that role.
The rookie injured his hamstring during the team’s minicamp in June and missed the final day of the offseason workout period.
