Welcome to the Kenyan Drake era.
Ok, so the Dolphins rookie is starting for injured Arian Foster today and that is likely to change when Foster returns from his groin injury.
The Dolphins indeed are bringing four running backs to the game today: Drake, Damien Williams, Isaiah Pead and Jay Ajayi.
The fact the plan is to make Drake the guy today pleases me because, well, that what I wrote yesterday I would do.
The other inactives today are WR Justin Hunter, DB Jordan Lucas, LB Spencer Paysinger, C Mike Pouncey, OG, Dallas Thomas, DE Terrence Fede, and Foster.
Active for the first time as a Miami Dolphins today will be linebacker Donald Butler. Expect him to see action at WILL and SAM linebacker today.
Anthony Steen starts at center for the third consecutive game in place of Pouncey.
Cameron Wake continues to be listed as a starter for the Dolphins. We all know he hasn't been getting nearly enough snaps and the reasons behind it are not always logical, as I wrote in my column today.
I'm told the Dolphins had discussions about the issue this week and plan to tweak the plan.
