The team confirmed the MRI results Friday afternoon and officially put Wake on season-ending injured reserve on Saturday.
Wake had to be carted to the locker room after suffering an Achilles injury late in the third quarter and he did not return. He had two tackles, a sack, and a tackle for loss before leaving the game. After the game, interim coach Dan Campbell said he didn't know the severity of the injury.
Losing Wake for the rest of the season is devastating for the defense. He's been one of the best five pass rushers in the league over the last five years. After all of the optimism that interim coach Dan Campbell brought over the last two weeks, the Dolphins had a humbling night against the Patriots. Wake's injury is bigger than any loss in the standings.
