Wake continues to distance himself from the devasting 2015 rupture of his Achilles tendon by churning out his second consecutive season with double-digit sacks. His playing time hasn't decreased despite his advanced age, as his 615 defensive snaps was a three-year high and checked in second to Ndamukong Suh among Dolphins defensive lineman. The veteran, who turns 36 on Jan. 30, remains under contract with Miami for one more season and should return in 2018 as a viable IDP prospect.
Wake (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Wake is one sack away from marking a double-digit sack performance for the fifth time in eight seasons. He has a favorable matchup with the Bills on Sunday, as QB Tyrod Taylor has been sacked on 9.7 percent of his dropbacks -- the second worst in the league.
Wake is questionable to play Sunday versus Buffalo due to an illness, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
The game is meaningless for Miami, so they may elect to take the safe approach and keep Wake inactive for the game. However, with 48 hours before kickoff, he still has plenty of time to recover.
Wake posted two tackles (one solo) and one sack Sunday against the Bills.
In his ninth campaign, Wake is now one sack shy of posting his fifth season with double-digits sacks. The Chiefs have been susceptible to strong pass rushes this season, too, with QB Alex Smith being sacked on 6.8 percent of his dropbacks, giving Wake a good chance to make some noise in Week 16.
Wake recorded three tackles, all solo, and one sack Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Wake recorded a sack for the second straight week, bringing his season total to eight. He also managed three tackles for the second straight week and now has 29 tackles on the year -- tying his season total from last season. He'll look to continue to rack up the tackles next week against the Broncos.
