Arian Foster is expected to miss the week 3 game vs. the Cleveland Browns. The Miami Dolphins have decided to replace him with rookie third round pick Kenyan Drake. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed this news as it is expected to be a heavy running back by committee.

Drake is a talented back who was the back up to the talented Derrick Henry at Alabama. Drake can work wonders in the passing game for Miami. There’s a reason Nick Saban used this guy in so many ways (catching, returning, rushing).

Jay Ajayi is expected to be worked into the rushing rotation as well. Ajayi, the 2015 5th round pick from Boise State, had high hopes of being the starter heading into this season. The report was Ajayi was unhappy with the decision to start Foster so he was left at home during week one. With Foster down expect his workload to be increased.

The other two backs that will get playing time today are Damien Williams and Isiah Pead. Both players were made inactive last week after missing meetings.
