Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake wore a walking boot on his right foot and did not participate in Wednesday’s joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Drake told ESPN the injury was “nothing crazy.” Head coach Brian Flores told the Miami Herald that Drake would be sidelined for a while, but was hopeful about his availability for the season opener.

Drake, 25, is entering his fourth season with the Dolphins, who picked him in the third round out of Alabama in the 2016 NFL Draft.

He has rushed 286 times for 1,358 yards and nine touchdowns and caught 94 passes for 762 yards and six scores while playing all 48 games since 2016.

Drake has been splitting carries in camp with second-year running back Kalen Ballage, who gained 247 yards from scrimmage in 12 games last season.
