Cole signed a contract with the Jaguars on Saturday. The exact terms of the deal remain a bit unclear, but the sixth-year linebacker will provide the Jaguars with some depth at the middle linebacker position behind veteran Paul Posluszny. It's unlikely he will produce enough to be worthy of ownership in IDP leagues, with the majority of his snaps likely coming on special teams.
Cole will start at middle linebacker Sunday against Detroit with Eric Kendricks inactive due to a concussion. Cole will not see the bulk of snaps however, as Chad Greenway will likely stay on the field in nickel and dime situations with Cole sitting out. Cole may not be an ideal IDP replacement for Kendricks as a result.

Cole may not see the bulk of snaps however, as Chad Greenway may stay on the field in nickel and dime situations with Cole sitting out.

Cole (ankle) signed a one-year contract to stay with the Vikings, FOX Sports North reports. Cole had just three tackles in seven games during the 2015 season, but he did start in Week 9 against the Rams in place of an injured Eric Kendricks. Cole broke his ankle during that game, ending his season prematurely. His biggest 2016 impact may come on special teams.
Cole was placed on the season-ending injured reserve list Tuesday after breaking his ankle during Sunday's contest. Cole got the start at middle linebacker with Eric Kendricks (ribs) ruled out prior to Sunday's game and the 26-year-old recorded two solo tackles before breaking his ankle. Jason Trusnik will take his place on the roster and provide depth at linebacker, but it remains to be seen who might start for the Vikings if Kendricks is held out of the lineup another week.
