NFL: Miami Dolphins-Training Camp Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Kenyan Drake will not play the rest of the preseason due to a foot injury and will take a while to heal according to Brian Flores. Drake sustained the injury during Tuesday’s joint practice with the Buccaneers and this creates a big opportunity for Kalen Ballage and the other backs as they vie for playing time the rest of the preseason. The team is hopeful that they will have Drake back for the season opener.
