This is certainly an odd signing given Josh Jacobs' presence on the Vegas roster, but teams like to have depth at running back and Drake fits the bill. He didn't look as explosive in 2020 after finishing the 2019 season on fire after the trade to Arizona. According to Ian Rapoport, "Jon Gruden sees Kenyan Drake as a jack-of-all-trades — a joker, as they say. He’ll figure prominently in the passing game." Drake's arrival will cap Jacobs' upside since he'll be more of a lead back instead of a bell cow.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle, knee, questionable) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Edmonds out-snapped Kenyan Drake in Week 15, though he's dinged up and will likely split the work with Drake in Week 16, if he can play. The Cardinals play in the afternoon game on Saturday.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 15. Edmonds is considered a game-time decision. The Cardinals play late on Sunday, so Edmonds should be avoided, if possible. Kenyan Drake would get a bump if Edmonds is out.

Cardinals RB Chase Edmonds (ankle) missed practice again Thursday. HC Kliff Kingsbury said that Edmonds is going to be a game-time decision for Week 15. If he's out, it's a bump for Kenyan Drake who should play almost every snap with Edmonds sidelined.
