It appears the Miami Dolphins will be trading running back Kenyan Drake ahead of Tuesday afternoon's deadline. Drake has been rumored to be on the trade block for a while.

Drake, 25, is reportedly not with the Dolphins ahead of Monday night's game against the Steelers.

"Dolphins RB Kenyan Drake did not travel with the team for Monday night’s game vs. Steelers. He’s not injured. It’s a clear sign that he’s likely to be traded before Tuesday’s deadline. Dolphins have been hoping for a mid-round pick in return," ESPN's Cameron Wolfe reports.

Drake was a third-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Alabama. He had a promising first three seasons in the league and has 174 yards on 47 carries this season.

The NFL's trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. E.T. on Tuesday.
