Summary

While 2018 was supposed to be a big season for Kenyan Drake as he took over the backfield, former head coach Adam Gase never seemed to want to rely on him, and his stats dropped in nearly every category save touchdowns, which increased by 1, and receptions. Drake was basically a change of pace back who caught a lot of balls. His 73 targets was the second highest total on the team and his 477 yards was the third highest total. With a new coach and new offensive coordinator in town, Drake has another chance to take the lead back job, and he says he's been hard at work studying other backs like James White, who new OC Chad O'Shea used to coach. On the downside, there's a big question mark under center and it's hard to say if either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Josh Rosen will keep defenses from stacking eight men in the box to contain Drake.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake out of practice (Mon Aug 19, 12:53 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (foot) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 19.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake available for Week 1? (Wed Aug 14, 02:07 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (foot) will miss some time because of a foot injury, but head coach Brian Flores said the team hopes Drake will be ready for Week 1.

Our View: Drake has been seen in a walking boot, but Flores is downplaying the situation. He's unlikely to play in the preseason but the team is emphasizing that he'll be back for the season opener. Without Drake on the field, second-year back Kalen Ballage will work as the Dolphins starter.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake in a walking boot (Wed Aug 14, 10:16 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (leg) was wearing a walking boot Wednesday, Aug. 14, after leaving practice the previous day.

Our View: Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is downplaying the boot situation and insists that Drake should be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. We are unlikely to see Drake in the rest of the preseason, and second-year back Kalen Ballage should take over as the starter while Drake is on the mend.

Dolphins | Kenyan Drake limps off practice field (Tue Aug 13, 07:03 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake (lower body) limped off the practice field Tuesday, Aug. 13, due to an apparent lower-body injury. Head coach Brian Flores didn't offer specifics after practice but said 'hopefully he's back out there tomorrow.'

Our View: Bad news for Drake here. He's getting pushed by Kalen Ballage for the starting job in 2019 and this injury could help the team make that decision. We'll see how bad this lower body injury is and will get more information if Drake does or does not practice on Wednesday.
