Miami morning take: Wake has MCL sprain
By James Walker
Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the web:
Morning take: Wake could not finish Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons and his status is up in the air against the New Orleans Saints. This could mean more playing time for others like Derrick Shelby and rookie Dion Jordan.
- Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports reports, via a source, that Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake has a mild MCL sprain in his knee.
Morning take: Jordan has the tools and now it appears he's finally getting healthy after offseason shoulder surgery. Jordan played more snaps after Wake went down and shortened the rotation.
- Speaking of Jordan, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes the rookie defensive end played his best game.
Morning take: Miami hasn’t allowed a fourth-quarter touchdown and quarterback Ryan Tannehill is locked in late in games. That is a formula for success.
- Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel explains how the Dolphins are dominating the fourth quarter.
Morning take: Miami is off to a 3-0 start and many of Ireland's moves are working early. The Dolphins must finish the job with a playoff appearance.
- Dave George of the Palm Beach Post writes Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland deserved his extension.
