10/08/2014 - Alabama tailback Kenyan Drake has had surgery to repair a broken left leg and is likely out for the season. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Monday it could be 8-10 weeks before Drake can start trying to work his way back. He said tailback Derrick Henry sustained a similar injury in spring 2013. Drake's foot was twisted at a severe angle after a run against Mississippi. Drake has run for 112 yards and a team-leading four touchdowns. He also has 159 yards and two scores on five receptions, including an 87-yarder against Florida. Saban also said linebacker Denzel Devall had surgery for an ankle injury but could return in three or four weeks. Center Ryan Kelly is likely out for a couple of weeks with a sprained knee. - AP Sports

08/13/2014 - Other Alabama prospects worth watching: RB Kenyan Drake, Junior...Like Yeldon, Drake doesn't look the part of a traditional running back, sporting a relatively lean and high-cut frame. He's a naturally elusive runner with good stop-start quickness, agility and a spin move to complement impressive acceleration. Drake served as Yeldon's primary backup last season, rushing for 694 yards and eight touchdowns but he's been plagued by off-field issues (including an arrest July 5) that require further investigation from the NFL. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

07/07/2014 - Alabama RB Drake arrested...Alabama junior running back Kenyan Drake was arrested Saturday morning and charged with a misdemeanor count of obstructing government operations, according to AL.com. Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's said Drake's bond was set at $1,000 and that he secured a bondsman. It is not clear how Drake obstructed government operations. The sheriff's office did not immediately provide details. According to the criminal code of Alabama, the crime is a Class A misdemeanor. The school did not immediately comment on Drake's arrest. Drake, a backup last year, rushed for 694 yards with eight touchdowns. He has 975 rushing yards with 13 touchdowns in two seasons. - The Sports Xchange

10/19/2013 - A wild day in the SEC included a rather mundane and methodical evening at Bryant-Denny Stadium as top-ranked Alabama jumped ahead of Arkansas early and cruised to a 52-0 victory on Saturday night. The victory extended Alabama's winning streak to 11 games -- dating to last season's second consecutive national championship season -- and will keep the Crimson Tide (7-0 overall, 4-0 SEC) atop the national rankings. Arkansas fell to 3-5 overall and 0-4 in SEC play.

Alabama coach Nick Saban will certainly find things that bothered me him during his team's latest victory, particularly during film study. But it was hard to spot on a Saturday night that Alabama appeared to do little wrong on offense, defense or special teams. Quarterback AJ McCarron, who sat down with just under six minutes left in the third quarter after throwing for 180 yards and three touchdowns, and running backs Kenyan Drake and T.J. Yeldon led the Alabama offense to 532 yards.

Drake and Yeldon combined for 192 of Alabama's 352 rushing yards with Drake scoring two touchdowns and Yeldon adding one. Alabama's offense didn't allow a sack or turn the ball over and the Crimson Tide was not flagged for a penalty in the game. - The Sports Xchange
