Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Ready for Texans
Hicks (toe) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.
Hicks managed only a limited practice Friday, but that will be enough for him to suit up Sunday. Through six games this season, Hicks has recorded 42 tackles and three sacks.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Listed as questionable
Hicks (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Texans, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was able to return Friday as a limited participant. He is officially listed as questionable for Week 7, but he will likely be available, as he went through the same practice regimen last week and was able to suit up and play well, notching two sacks and six tackles against the Browns....

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Not practicing yet
Hicks (toe) missed a second straight practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
So far, Hicks is following his practice regimen from a week ago, when he didn't get on the field in the first two sessions. He ended up returning Friday as a limited participant, only to enter the weekend as questionable before being deemed active this past Sunday in Cleveland. He ended up sacking Baker Mayfield (shoulder) twice, and after putting up six tackles Hicks leads the Cardinals with 42 through six games. Hicks will look to be available again Week 7 against the Texans.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Continues to pace team in tackles
Hicks had six tackles, including two sacks, during Sunday's 37-14 victory in Cleveland.
Hicks has been good for at least six tackles in five straight games, but he supplemented his line with two takedowns of Baker Mayfield, bringing his sack count on the season to three. That number matches his career high from his 2018 campaign with the Eagles, and he now sits alone with a team-leading 42 tackles after standout safety Budda Baker mustered just two Sunday....

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Playing Week 6
Hicks (toe) is active for Sunday's game at Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks managed just one limited practice during Week 6 prep as he dealt with a toe injury, but he nonetheless is healthy enough to suit up on game day. He's missed only five defensive snaps on the season en route to a team-high (along with Budda Baker) 36 tackles.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Week 6 status up in air
Hicks (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday before ending Week 6 prep with a limited session. It remains to be seen if it was enough for the Cardinals to clear him for game action this weekend. If it doesn't, Hicks would be replaced by rookie first-rounder Zaven Collins, who would slot in at inside linebacker next to the team's 2020 first-round pick Isaiah Simmons.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Tending to toe injury
Hicks didn't practice Wednesday due to a toe injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
After tallying six more tackles this past Sunday against the 49ers, Hicks still sits in a tie with IDP standout Budda Baker for the team lead in the category with 36. Hicks' ability to stave off two recent first-round picks (Isaiah Simmons and Zaven Collins) for playing time while missing just five defensive snaps (all in Weeks 1 and 2) through five games is a testament to his standing on the Cardinals. However, with a health concern in tow, Hicks' status will be one to watch closely to see if there may be changes at inside linebacker this Sunday in Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Another eight tackles Week 4
Hicks churned out eight tackles during Sunday's 37-20 road win versus the Rams.
After posting a pedestrian four tackles in the season opener, Hicks has got on track the last three games, totaling 26 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble during that stretch. He also played 100 percent of the Cardinals' defensive snaps both Week 3 and 4, making him the only player on the team to do so. Tied with Budda Baker and fellow inside linebacker Isaiah Simmons for the team lead in tackles (30), Hicks will aim for another productive outing Sunday against the run-based 49ers.... See More ...

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Season-high 12 tackles Sunday
Hicks paced the Cardinals with 12 tackles during Sunday's 31-19 win in Jacksonville.
The season-high tally in tackles more than doubled Hicks' output on the campaign to 22 through three games. He also had a strip sack that was recovered by defensive lineman Zach Allen, and Hicks' pass defense resulted in one of cornerback Byron Murphy's two interceptions in the game. More importantly, Hicks logged all 68 of the Cardinals' defensive snaps for the first time this season, which was something that he accomplished in 10 of 16 contests last year. There was a belief in the offseason that rookie first-round pick Zaven Collins would join 2020 first-rounder Isaiah Simmons as the team's starting inside linebackers, but so far Hicks has retained his role from the previous two campaigns....

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Notches six tackles Sunday
Hicks had six tackles and one pass defense during Sunday's 34-33 victory against the Vikings.
Hicks has been modestly productive through two games with 10 tackles. More importantly, though, he's been the leading inside linebacker for the Cardinals, even with recent first-round picks Isaiah Simmons (2020) and Zaven Collins (2021) in his position group. The selection of the latter led Hicks to request a trade in the offseason, but the situation has been settled, at least for now, with the seventh-year pro garnering 96 percent (120 of 125) of the team's defensive snaps to date. Because his usage remains similar to the past two seasons in Arizona, he should begin to approach the 8.4 tackles per game he averaged during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Seeking trade
The Cardinals are giving Hicks permission to seek a trade after the team selected fellow linebacker Zaven Collins with the 16th overall pick in last month's draft, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Cardinals seemingly want their two most recent first-round picks to be the starting inside linebackers, with Collins joined by Isaiah Simmons in a 3-4 base front. Hicks is coming off back-to-back seasons with 16 starts and triple-digit tackles, while also adding 10 pass breakups, four interceptions, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks between those years. The veteran linebacker turns 29 in June, at which point he may already be with a new team.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Notches triple-digit tackles again
Hicks (neck) totaled 118 tackles (78 solo, 11.5 for loss), four pass defenses and one interception in 16 appearances during the 2020 season.
Hicks didn't come close to matching his monstrous debut 2019 campaign with the Cardinals, when he had 150 tackles, three picks, two forced fumbles, 1.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. Having said that, he displayed durability, playing in every game for second straight season after missing 21 of 64 contests in his first four years with the Eagles. Hicks has two years remaining on his contract, so he'll continue to patrol the middle of Arizona's defense with stud safety Budda Baker.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Suffers neck injury
Hicks left Sunday's game against the Rams due to a neck injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear whether Hicks will return to Sunday's game after suffering a neck injury. The middle linebacker has consistently been a solid asset for the Cardinals' defense, and it is likely Tanner Vallejo or De'Vondre Campbell will take over Hicks' duties if he's unable to rejoin the matchup....

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Day officially done
Hicks (neck) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams.
Hicks won't return to Sunday's game after suffering a neck injury. Isaiah Simmons and De'Vondre Campbell will likely play most of the defensive snaps as the 28-year-old linebacker will not rejoin the Cardinals during this matchup.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Rings up eight tackles Sunday
Hicks posted eight tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 26-7 road win over the Giants.
Hicks hasn't put up double-digit tackles since Week 6, but he's been consistent in seven contests in the meantime, averaging exactly seven stops per game. Because he rarely contributes turnovers or sacks, the output isn't exactly appealing for IDP purposes, but fantasy managers at least know what to expect with the aforementioned steady weekly output....

Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Posts eight tackles Sunday
Hicks had eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 32-30 victory over the Bills.
Hicks leads the Cardinals with 74 stops, and his 8.5 tackles for loss are second only to Haason Reddick's 10.5. The middle of the team's defense is banged up at the moment, with three starters -- free safety Budda Baker (groin/ankle, limited), inside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (calf, DNP) and strong safety Jalen Thompson (shoulder, DNP) -- all appearing on Monday's estimated practice report. If any of the trio are sidelined Thursday at Seattle, Hicks could be poised for his fourth outing of 10-plus tackles of the season.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Not on final injury report
Hicks (ankle/wrist) was taken off the injury report after a full practice Friday and doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game against Miami, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks was limited in practice earlier this week by a pair of injuries, but he overcame them to practice fully Friday and is primed to start at linebacker against the Dolphins. He has been a tackling machine this season, racking up 59 through seven games.... See More ... See Less
