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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
