The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports that Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake is out of his walking boot and was jogging before Thursday's preseason game. So he's making tangible progress from the foot injury he suffered 8 days ago. But Drake should still be considered questionable to be ready for Week 1. We'll continue to keep an eye on him.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores said after Wednesday's practice that RB Kenyan Drake is sidelined with a foot injury. Flores added that Drake will be out "a while" but that the team is "hopeful" to get him back before Week 1. That sounds like Drake is questionable for the start of the season. We'll continue to monitor his status but just nudged him down the RB rankings. Kalen Ballage has a golden opportunity to open the year as Miami's lead back.

Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's practice. He won't practice on Wednesday and was spotted in a walking boot. These walking boots are often precautionary -- but they can also mean a significant injury. We'll look for updates on Drake's status. His absence leaves Kalen Ballage as Miami's clear lead back.

ESPN's Cameron Wolfe predicts a 45/40 touch split between Dolphins RBs Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage (with the last 15% going to whoever wins the #3 RB job). We don't put much stock into beat-writer projections, but this seems fair considering Ballage has been running ahead of Drake early in training camp. With Miami likely to run more plays this season, according to Wolfe, the split would mean around 200 touches for Drake and 175 for Ballage. Drake tallied 173 touches last year and finished 14th among RBs in PPR points and 21st in non-PPR. His fantasy stock has taken a hit over the past week, but he's still in the RB2 mix. Ballage has become a RB3 consideration.

The Dolphins have named Brian Flores their HC. Like Zac Taylor in Cincinnati, this deal has been done for a while. Flores has been with New England since 2004, working his way up from scout to special teams assistant to safeties and LBs coach. Although never officially named defensive coordinator, Flores called plays on that side of the ball this past season. We'll see who Flores tabs to run the offense.

Injury Predictor

Drake endured an injury-riddled college career, including 9 games lost to a broken and dislocated ankle in 2014, 2 more lost to a right arm fracture in 2015 and a concussion (which didn't claim any games). His NFL stint has been comparatively quiet, though Drake did lose 3 weeks of 2016 training camp to a hamstring strain and a week of 2017 camp to a concussion. He has also tallied just 166 total rushing attempts through 2 seasons. Drake figures to see much more work in his 3rd season after emerging as Miami's lead back following the Jay Ajayi trade. Can he hold up?
