Dolphins fear Wake has season-ending torn Achilles tendon

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins fear defensive end Cameron Wake has a torn left Achilles tendon that will end his season. The team is awaiting MRI results to confirm the diagnosis.

Wake was to be further evaluated Friday after he was hurt in Thursday's 36-7 loss at New England.

It's possible the four-time Pro Bowl end has played his final game for Miami. Wake is 33 and under contract through 2016. But he has a cap number of $9.8 million next year, and the Dolphins could save $8.4 million in cap space by cutting him.

Wake was slowed by a hamstring injury early this year but had seven sacks and four forced fumbles in the past three games.
