Miami has not put out an injury report, and Wake's availability for the game is uncertain.
Wake did not participate in team drills on Wednesday, and wore sweatpants over top of a knee brace.
"All great competitors want to play,'' coach Joe Philbin said to the Miami Herald. "We certainly would never put out a player we thought wasn't ready to play the game and protect himself, so we'll just see how practice goes.''
