Dolphins' Kalen Ballage: Benefits from Drake's absence
Ballage dominated the first-team snaps at Wednesday's practice while Kenyan Drake was sidelined with a leg injury, Safid Deen of The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post notes that Ballage took full advantage of the opportunity, displaying an impressive combination of size, speed and power. Of course, nobody really questions Ballage's physical traits, with criticism instead focusing on vision, instincts and toughness. Ballage seems to have strong support from the new coaching staff in Miami, often taking snaps with the first team even when Drake has been healthy. There's little question Drake will have a key role in the passing game, but it's less certain which of the two will be tasked with most of the rushing workload.
