Dolphins placed DE Cameron Wake on injured reserve with a torn Achilles, ending his season.
Wake had seven sacks and was PFF’s No. 2 pass rusher before going down in Week 8. Due $9.8 million in 2016, he isn’t a lock to return for the final year of his deal. Miami signed OL Ulrick John in a corresponding move. Oct 31 - 5:35 PM

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake will miss the rest of the season with a torn Achilles'.

He'll be placed on season-ending injured reserve. It's a brutal loss for the Dolphins in a game they got stomped 36-7 by the Patriots. Wake was far-and-away Pro Football Focus' top-rated 4-3 end in the two weeks since Miami canned coach Joe Philbin, allowing the defense to play more aggressively. In those two games, Wake notched 12 combined sacks, hits, and hurries, and took home Defensive Player of the Week honors Week 6. Derrick Shelby will slide in as the starter opposite RE Olivier Vernon. Scheduled to count $9.8 million against the cap in the final year of his deal next season, the Dolphins can save $8.4 million by releasing the then-34-year-old. It's a likely move.

The Dolphins believe LE Cameron Wake has a torn left Achilles' tendon.

He'll undergo a Friday MRI to confirm. The injury robs the Dolphins of their best pass rusher, and ups the pressure on RE Olivier Vernon. With Dion Jordan suspended for 2015, Derrick Shelby and Terrence Fede's snaps will increase. Wake had been a force thus far this season. He's an irreplaceable loss.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake's left leg injury is to his Achilles' tendon.

It's the worst possible news. It's quite likely Wake has a ruptured Achilles', and is done for the season. Wake has remained a pass rushing force during his age-33 campaign, getting to the quarterback seven times in seven games. His loss would be felt at every level of the Dolphins' defense.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake was carted off with a left leg injury in Thursday's game against the Patriots.

It was a non-contact injury, which is always quite alarming when paired with a carting. Wake was emotionless both on the field and during his trip to the locker room. Wake has been on fire since coach Joe Philbin's firing. A season-ending injury would be devastating for the Dolphins' season.

Dolphins LE Cameron Wake has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 6.

Wake received PFF's highest grade at any position in Week 6 by a wide margin after he destroyed Titans rookie RT Jeremiah Poutasi for seven combined sacks, hits, and hurries of Marcus Mariota. Coming into the game, Wake had zero sacks and just five total hits and hurries. The 33-year-old needs to have a strong rest of the season if he's going to get his non-guaranteed $8.275 million in 2016.

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.

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.
