Coach Brian Flores said Drake (foot) will be sidelined for a while but is expected to be ready for the Dolphins' Week 1 game versus the Ravens, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Drake suffered an injury that caused him to limp off the field during Tuesday's practice, and he was spotted in a walking boot Wednesday. The fourth-year running back appears to be managing a foot injury of moderate severity, though it's encouraging that he isn't expected to miss any regular-season action. As long as Drake remains sidelined, Kalen Ballage will operate as Miami's clear No. 1 runner.
