The Dolphins released Gabe Wright on Tuesday, one day after he reportedly blindsided running back Kenyan Drake.

The team announced the move involving Wright, who charged at a helmetless Drake during Monday practice. Drake did not appear to be injured in the incident, which occurred toward the end of a fight involving multiple players.

“It was time for us to move on,” coach Adam Gase told reporters Tuesday morning, via the Miami Herald.

Drake flourished in the nine games following Jay Ajayi’s departure to the Philadelphia Eagles, racking up 851 yards from scrimmage (619 rushing, 232 receiving) and four touchdowns.

Wright entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2015 NFL Draft. He previously spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles before residing on the practice squad of the Dolphins for much of the 2017 season.
