Dolphins place RB Gore on injured reserve

Frank Gore's season is officially over after the Miami Dolphins placed the running back on injured reserve on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old sustained a sprained foot in the Dolphins' 41-17 defeat to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Being placed on IR means Gore ends a run of 126 consecutive games - the longest active streak among any NFL running back, wide receiver or tight end.

He also started 122 straight games, the longest sequence for any NFL running back since Eddie George started 130 in a row from 1996 to 2004.

Gore is fourth in NFL history with 14,478 rushing yards and fifth all-time with 18,544 yards from scrimmage. He made a big impact this season, totalling 156 carries for 722 yards. 

In his absence, Miami (7-7) will rely on running backs Kenyan Drake, Kalen Ballage and Brandon Bolden to keep the offense going as the Dolphins face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday looking to keep their playoff chances alive.
