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.
Wake logged one solo tackle and one sack during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars.
Wake now has 5.5 sacks on the season and trails only Jason Taylor for most sacks in Miami's franchise history. The veteran played a solid game Week 16, consistently providing pressure on Jacksonville's quarterbacks, but was unable to make up for a middling performance by the Dolphins' offense.
Wake recorded one solo tackle, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts.
Wake has reached the quarterback in three straight games, and now has 4.5 sacks on the season. The veteran defensive end also recorded his first forced fumble of 2018. Wake is difficult to trust in IDP formats due to his low tackle numbers, but he has a favorable matchup against the Bills coming up Sunday.
Wake recorded three tackles and half of a sack during Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
Wake continues to have his snap counts capped in the mid-thirties and he's consequently been a sack-or-bust fantasy prospect all year. Don't expect that to change in Week 11 against the Colts' strong offensive line.
Wake logged three tackles (two solo) and two sacks during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets.
Wake tormented rookie quarterback Sam Darnold throughout Miami's win in Week 9, recording his highest sack total of the season. The veteran defensive end played a key role in restraining New York's offense to a total of six points, and will attempt to log another strong showing against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in Week 10.
Wake (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 7 tilt against the Lions.
The veteran defensive end was able to get back to full practice participation Friday and will now suit up for the first time since Week 4. Wake will look to help the Dolphins' defensive front contain Matthew Stafford and a Lions backfield that will be missing Theo Riddick (knee) on Sunday.
Wake (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
While his designation implies that his availability a 50-50 proposition for Week 7, Wake seems to be trending toward suiting up after logging a full practice Friday. The veteran has missed the last three games while recovering from a knee scope, but there hasn't been any indication that he's suffered a setback in the recovery process. Even so, there's a chance that Wake's reps could still be capped Sunday if he returns to action as expected, rendering him a rather unappealing IDP option for at least this week.
Wake (knee) will participate in practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake has not seen the field since Week 4 while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery. The Dolphins have yet to make a call on Wake's status for Week 7, as reported by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. The former Penn State standout is certainly on track to make his return to the field Sunday after returning to practice Thursday, but expect a definitive call from the team in the next couple of days.
Wake (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Safid Deen and Wells Dusenbury of the South Florida Sun Sentinel report.
Wake missed the last two games of the regular season due to a knee injury but appears to be progressing in his recovery and should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Coach Adam Gase said, "Hopefully we'll know by the end of the week how [Wake] feels and whether or not he can go."
Wake (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 6 tilt against the Bears.
The veteran defensive end was reportedly making solid progress earlier in the week according to head coach Adam Gase, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Wake actually recently underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee. However, Schefter adds that Wake could conceivably return for a Week 7 home game against the Lions. Andre Branch should see extra snaps in Wake's absence Sunday.
Wake (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Bears, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake was unable to log a practice this week and hasn't played since Week 4 against the Patriots. In Wake's absence last week, Charles Harris saw an increased role, logging 42 defensive snaps. Harris would likely resume that role if Wake doesn't suit up Sunday.
Wake (knee) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake originally suffered the knee injury in Week 4 against the Patriots and was forced to miss the Dolphins' Week 5 game against the Bengals. This was Wake's second consecutive day of missed practice after he was unable to participate Wednesday. Though coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that Wake is "on track" and "not too far off" from retaking the field, this news is not a promising sign for his Week 6 availability.
Wake (knee) did not practice Wednesday, but coach Adam Gase relayed after the session that he is "on track" and "not too far off" from retaking the field, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
The knee issue that forced Wake to miss Week 5 against the Bengals remains in play, but Gase's words suggest the veteran's return could still be on the table Sunday against the Bears. Through four games this season, Wake has recorded 12 tackles (four solo) and one sack, and he figures to return to a rotational role on the defensive line when healthy.
The Dolphins have ruled out Wake (knee) for their Week 5 matchup with the Bengals, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
No surprise here, as Wake was deemed doubtful on Friday's injury report. His absence should free up playing time for Andre Branch (knee) if he is able to go, but if he is not look for Jonathan Woodard and Charles Harris to see their roles increased. Wake will set his sights on a Week 6 return versus the Bears.
Wake (knee) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Wake was unable to practice in any capacity throughout the week, leading to a doubtful designation heading into Sunday's matchup. If Wake is ultimately sidelined Week 5, expect Andre Branch (knee), Charles Harris and Jonathan Woodard to see additional reps at defensive end across from Robert Quinn.
Wake (knee) is considered day-to-day due to a knee injury, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Wake has not yet participated in practice this week, Adam Beasley reports. The 36-year-old defensive end should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, and if Wake were to miss any time, it would mean increased defensive snaps for Andre Branch (knee) and Jonathan Woodard.
