Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (hamstring) has resumed practicing in full.
Wake has struggled to start the season (two solo tackles, zero sacks), as has the whole Dolphins D-Line. Having suffered a hamstring injury in Week 1, Wake toughed it out, playing over 70 percent of snaps. He aggravated it in Week 2, however, leaving the game after 15 snaps. Although he is slated to play this week, downgrade Wake to a low DL2 until we see his IDP scores pick up. Sep 26 - 5:24 AM

Citing "numerous" league sources and NFL executives, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Dolphins "might also be open to dealing" Cameron Wake and Mike Wallace.

If La Canfora's sources are to be trusted, the Dolphins are open to a full-on firesale under rookie GM Dennis Hickey, as 2013 No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan is also said to be available. Miami would absorb an over-$5 million cap penalty to deal Jordan, but would clear room by trading Wallace and/or Wake. (No one is going to trade for Wallace's mammoth contract, of course.) La Canfora's story, accessible at the link below, indicates Hickey intends to invest heavily in the talented 2014 draft, and is willing to part with big-name players in order to load up on picks. Ex-GM Jeff Ireland's 2013 offseason "master plan" blew up tremendously during the regular season, and looks worse and worse by the day.

Cameron Wake's (knee) snaps are expected to double in Week 8.

Wake has been battling a knee injury since Week 3 and played just 22 snaps in Week 7. Coach Joe Philbin now says his best pass rusher is 100 percent. He'll be battling the Patriots' elite tackle duo of Nate Solder and Sebastian Vollmer Sunday.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 7.

He's all systems go coming off a Week 6 bye. Wake is Miami's best pass rusher and one of the top-five defensive ends in football. His return bodes poorly for Buffalo's Thad Lewis-quarterbacked offense in Week 7.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) is active for Week 5 against the Ravens.

Wake will only end up missing one game after sitting out last Monday's loss to New Orleans. The Dolphins inactives are QB Pat Devlin, RB Mike Gillislee, CB Dimitri Patterson, OL Danny Watkins, CB Will Davis, LB Josh Kaddu, and OL Dallas Thomas.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Wake seems more likely than not to play against the Ravens after sitting out last Monday's loss to New Orleans. He practiced on a "limited" basis Friday. Officially, the Dolphins are calling Wake a game-time decision.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) is inactive for Monday night's Week 4 game against the Saints.

Jared Odrick will shift over from defensive tackle and start at left end. Paul Soliai (knee) is active, and he and Randy Starks will start at defensive tackle. The Dolphins' other inactives: QB Pat Devlin, RB Mike Gillislee, CB Dimitri Patterson, CB Will Davis, G Danny Watkins, and G/T Dallas Thomas.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) practiced on a limited basis Saturday and is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Saints.

Wake suffered a sprained MCL last week, but has yet to be ruled out for Monday Night Football and is expected to be a game-time decision. If Wake can't go, rookie Dion Jordan will make his first career start.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, and has yet to be ruled out for Monday Night Football.

An erroneous initial report pegged Wake as week to week, but he's more day to day. Wake is hoping to play on passing downs against the Saints. With as much defensive line depth as any team in the league, the Dolphins could opt to hold Wake out for one week in an effort to get him closer to full health for Week 5.
Thu, Sep 26, 2013 05:35:00 PM

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) was limited to "field work" in Tuesday's practice, but "still hopes to play (Week 4) in pass situations."

Wake's status is still murky, but it appears a certain South Florida newspaper's Monday report that he could miss 2-3 weeks was predictably dead wrong. The report has since been significantly altered. For now, Wake should be considered 50-50 for Week 4. Rookie Dion Jordan will pick up the slack if Wake can't go against the Saints.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports Dolphins LE Cameron Wake (knee) will likely miss 2-3 weeks.

We usually don't post "reports" from the Sun-Sentinel because its football coverage is the least reliable in the nation, but several other media outlets have ran with this story. We'd just take it with a grain of salt. At one point in the "report", it's written Wake could miss "at least a week or two," and later it states Wake will "likely" be sidelined "two to three weeks." CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported earlier Wake has a "mild" MCL sprain, and is seen more as day to day. If Wake misses any time, it will be a significant blow to Miami's edge rush. The Fins travel to the Superdome in Week 4.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Dolphins LE Cameron Wake has been diagnosed with a "mild" MCL sprain.

Even a "mild" MCL sprain could cost Wake multiple games, but it's still good news. Wake missed the final three quarters of Sunday's win over the Falcons, and should be considered doubtful for next Monday's showdown with the Saints for the time being. Wake has 2.5 sacks through his first three games.
Mon, Sep 23, 2013 03:08:00 PM

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake exited Sunday's Week 3 game against the Falcons with a knee injury and did not return.

Wake was injured fairly early in the first quarter. He went to the locker room but later returned to the sidelines, suggesting it's not a serious issue. Second-year undrafted free agent DE Derrick Shelby is filling in.
Sun, Sep 22, 2013 05:01:00 PM

Defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said he wouldn't trade LE Cameron Wake "for anybody in our league."

Wake went undrafted out of Penn State in 2009 and remains in the shadows of the game's best pass-rushers. It's unfair. Over the last three years, Wake has 37.5 sacks, 152 tackles and six forced fumbles. He's our No. 2 defensive lineman in the IDP ranks, ahead of Jason Pierre-Paul and behind only J.J. Watt.

Cameron Wake has tied his career-high with 14 sacks this season.

The Dolphins' defense certainly hasn't quit. Wake was a monster against the 49ers Sunday, eating up Anthony Davis to the tune of three sacks, three quarterback hits and a forced fumble. Wake is a good bet to set his career-high in sacks against the Jags in Week 15.
