Wake's limited participation in Wednesday's practice wasn't injury related. Wake is 37 years old, so the Titans are taking care of him by limiting his practice workload. Even with age, Wake has a lot of fire left as he proved in the season opener with 2.5 sacks against Browns QB Baker Mayfield. The evergreen linebacker should have a tougher matchup against the Colts' sturdy offensive line in Week 2.
Wake (undisclosed) practiced Wednesday in a limited capacity, John Glennon of The Athletic reports. The Titans aren't worried about Wake's status for Sunday's game versus the Colts, but they're making sure Wake stays fresh at 37 years old. He clearly is still a menace on the field with 2.5 sacks in Week 1 versus the Browns, so he'll look to continue that success against Colts QB Jacoby Brissett.
Wake recorded three tackles and 2.5 sacks in the Titans' Week 1 win over the Browns. The Titans caused a bit of a stir by investing $23 million in Wake this offseason, as he was entering his age-37 season. However, he went a long way toward rewarding the team's faith in him in Week 1, leading the team in sacks and registering four quarterback hits. After logging a six-sack campaign in 2018, Wake looks rejuvenated and will seek to wreak havoc once again in Week 2 against Indianapolis.
Wake agreed to a three-year, $23 million contract with the Titans on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. This is quite the investment to make in a 37-year-old pass rusher, but Wake proved he still has game after posting 36 tackles and six sacks in 2018. Wake is expected to start on Tennessee's defensive line opposite Jurrell Casey.
Wake recorded four tackles (all solo) during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He finishes the year with 36 tackles, six sacks, one pass defended and one forced fumble. Wake ends the 2018 season with his lowest sack total since 2011, but he nonetheless remains a reliable piece of the Dolphins' defensive front. The 36-year-old veteran has expressed an intent to continue playing in 2019, although he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Wake's contract situation will be worth monitoring, but it's difficult to imagine that the Dolphins would chose not to bring back the five-time Pro Bowler -- especially considering that Wake has made his desire to remain in Miami clear, according to Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post.
