Apparently the news that Miami awoke to this morning wasn’t all good.  Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported earlier today that Cameron Wake has a mild MCL sprain.  Now it’s being reported by the Sun-Sentinel that Wake could miss up to three weeks.

In what has to be one of the funniest moments I have seen from Rotoworld.com, the Sun-Sentinel got backhanded in the chin by the fantasy sports website who is on top of the news around sports like nobody’s “bizzness”.

While I admit that my daggers are usually thrown squarely at the Miami Herald this Rotoworld snippet isn’t far off the mark.  Lately the Sun-Sentinel has been plagued by horrible wishy-washy journalism but two of their beat writers…not you Dave Hyde.  The reality is that it’s hard to know what exactly will be Wake’s timetable but someone will need to step up.

Lest we forget the Dolphins had no sacks on Matt Ryan on Sunday and Wake left the game in the early 2nd quarter.  The Dolphins defense still stepped up and made plays when they needed to.  Looks like rookie Dion Jordan will become a vital role player moving forward.

The Dolphins face an unenvious task next Monday night as they take on the New Orleans Saints and more specifically Drew Brees.  Not having Wake will be an obvious crutch.  The following week they are at home against Baltimore before taking their bye week.  If three weeks is the max Wake will be back for the home game against Buffalo.

As to whether or not this report is accurate…I may have to go over and read the Palm Beach Post.  Oh wait Ben Volin is no longer there.
