Dolphins cut Gabe Wright for blindsiding Kenyan Drake in practice fight


DAVIE, Fla. — A message was sent loud and clear at Miami Dolphins headquarters: No cheap shots are allowed against teammates, especially not at the team’s starting running back.

Veteran defensive lineman Gabe Wright was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, one day after he charged at and blindsided Kenyan Drake while the running back’s helmet was off.

The incident occurred toward the end of a fight involving multiple players during Monday’s practice. It was one of several incidents during a particularly physical and testy session.

An angry Drake tossed Wright’s helmet to the sideline after the skirmish. Drake did not appear to be injured during the fight.
