PLANTATION, Fl. - Miami Dolphins standout defensive end Cameron Wake was back in practice on Tuesday with no visible injuries following a car accident in Plantation the day before.
The wreck occurred at 12:30 p.m. on Monday at the intersection of South Nob Hill Road and Torchwood Avenue in Plantation.
According to Plantation Police, Wake slammed his black BMW into the side of a white Lexus that made a left turn in front of him at the intersection.
Wake was traveling northbound on South Nob Hill Road while the driver of the Lexus, Wallace Waldman, 70, of Plantation was heading in the opposite direction. Waldman was cited for violating Wake's right-of-way, said agency spokesman Detective Robert Rettig.
Both cars are considered totaled, he said.
Wake was not injured, while Waldman was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, Rettig said. Both men were wearing seat belts and the air bags were deployed in both vehicles, police said. Police noted alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
Wake, the Dolphins starting left defensive end, attended Tuesday's practice, but did not participate.
This three-year veteran, who had 42 tackles and 8.5 sacks last season, watched the early portions of practice with veteran starting linebackers Karlos Dansby and Kevin Burnett, who are also being rested this week. But Wake went inside the facility for the second half of the morning practice, where he was possibly being worked on by the team's medical staff.
Rookie defensive end Olivier Vernon, a former UM standout the Dolphins selected in the third-round of the 2012 draft, worked in Wake's place with the first-team defense.
It is possible Wake could sit out Friday's game against the Carolina Panthers because of any lingering injuries, or the team's desire to evaluate younger players at his position during the Dolphins' second exhibition game. But if he does play, starters usually receive about 20 snaps at this point in the exhibition season.
