Miami Dolphins starting left defensive end Cameron Wake attended practice on Tuesday but did not participate as he continues to recover from a car accident that occurred on Monday, according to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Wake watched the first half of practice on Tuesday morning but then went inside the facility for the second half. According to the report, “he was possibly being worked on by the team’s medical staff.”

The accident occurred on Monday afternoon in Plantation, Fla., when Wake slammed his BMW into the side of a Lexus that was making a left turn at the approaching intersection. The 70-year-old driver of the Lexus was cited for violating Wake’s right-of-way. According to the report, alcohol was not involved in the incident. Both drivers were wearing seat belts and airbags deployed for both of them, though their cars ended up being totaled.

Wake reportedly did not suffer any injuries, though it is not certain at this time whether the Dolphins will continue to hold him out of contact drills and perhaps out of Friday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Wake, a three-year veteran, had 42 tackles and 8.5 sacks last season.
