Dolphins Player Cut After Sucker Punching Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake

Kenyan Drake has always been an emotional player on the field. Last season in the season finale against Buffalo, Drake was ejected for tossing a Bills players helmet while defending ex teammate Jarvis Landry. Monday at Dolphins practice there were 4 reported altercations among players. Training camp fights are common and to be expected. Guys have been in the heat competing hard and tempers flare.

However, After a play in practice where Kenyan Drake ran the ball, he and teammate defensive tackle Gabe Wright were involved in a war of words. As Drake turned his back, Wright punched the former Tide star in the back. Hours after practice was over Wright was released. That wasn’t a smart move for Wright as he wasn’t a lock to make the team anyway.

Its clear that Dolphins head coach Adam Gase is sending a message that trying to purposely hurt a teammate will not be tolerated. Drake is expected to co-start with veteran Frank Gore at running back this season for Miami.
