Kalen Ballage’s opportunity as the Miami Dolphins starting running back is over, at least for this season.

The Dolphins placed Ballage on injured reserve Tuesday.

Ballage was given a greater chance after Miami traded Kenyan Drake to Arizona.

This season, Ballage had six starts. He rushed 74 times for 135 yards and three touchdowns.

Miami claimed Zach Zenner off waivers from Arizona.

The Dolphins will travel to the New York Jets on Sunday.
