MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake has been traded to the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona will send a conditional 2020 draft pick to Miami in exchange for Drake, NFL sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team later confirmed the trade.

The Cardinals have been beset by injuries to running backs David Johnson and Chase Edmonds, making Drake a viable trade option for the winless Dolphins.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport said Miami will receive a sixth-round pick that can become a fifth-round pick.
The #AZCardinals have traded for #Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake, handing Miami a conditional 6th round pick in 2020 that can become a 5th rounder, source said. Given injuries to David Johnson and Chase Edmonds, AZ jumped in this morning.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 28, 2019
Drake didn't travel with the team for Monday night's game at Pittsburgh.
The 2016 third-round draft pick has played in 54 games for the Dolphins in his career, rushing for 1,532 yards and nine touchdowns. He's probably best known for scoring the winning touchdown on a multi-lateral play against the New England Patriots last year in a game now known as the "Miami Miracle."
However, he's been limited to just 47 carries for 174 yards this season and has yet to cross the end zone in 2019.
Drake could see action with his new team as early as Thursday night when Arizona hosts the undefeated San Francisco 49ers.
The Cardinals traded a second-round pick to Miami in April for quarterback Josh Rosen.
