The Dolphins lost the Thursday Night Football game to the Patriots, but maybe more importantly, they lost the corner stone of their team, DE Cameron Wake. The monster of a pass rusher accumulated 7 sacks in the past 3 games coming into this week.
Wake went down during an edge rush Thursday Night and was carted to the locker room, never a promising sight.
Video of the play shows Wake clearly favoring one leg, intact barely even letting the other foot touch the ground besides once, trying to finish the play and sack Patriots QB Tom Brady by hoping around New England’s left tackle, even taking on another blocker after he rushed around the edge.
The Dophins fell to 3 and 4 with the loss (2-1 under interim head coach Dan Campbell) and are now in last place in the AFC East.
