  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Logs another productive season

    Hicks totaled 107 tackles (61 solo), a sack, five passes defended, an interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown during the 2023 regular season.

    Hicks crossed the century mark in total tackles for the fifth straight season, despite missing four games with a shin injury that involved a stint on injured reserve. The 31-year-old is set to be a free agent this offseason after two seasons in Minnesota.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Four tackles in loss

    Hicks finished Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Packers with four tackles (one solo).

    It was Hicks' lowest tackling output since Week 1 against the Bucs when he had three stops. Still, thanks to Sunday's performance, the 2015 third-round pick out of Texas is up to 100 total tackles on the year, which is the fifth straight season he has reached the century mark in that category.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Nine tackles in return from injury

    Hicks had nine total tackles, a pass defensed and a QB hit in Sunday's loss to Detroit.

    Hicks started at weak-side linebacker and played on all of the defense's 79 snaps. It was a remarkable turnaround after he suffered a shin injury -- one that was subsequently further diagnosed as compartment syndrome -- during Minnesota's Week 11 win over the Saints.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Active Sunday

    Hicks (shin) is active for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    The starting inside linebacker practiced fully all week but was still questionable after being activated from injured reserve Saturday. The ninth-year veteran will now play in his first game since Week 10. Hicks has been his usual productive self in 2023, with 87 tackles, four passes defensed, two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble and an interception.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Comes off IR

    Hicks (shin) was activated to the Vikings' 53-man roster Saturday.

    Hicks had been on injured reserve since Week 10, but it now seems as if he's been able to move past his shin issue. Even though the 31-year-old was activated off IR, he's still listed as questionable for Sunday's affair. If he's unable to suit up, expect Troy Dye to see increased work in Minnesota's linebacker corps.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Officially questionable for Sunday

    Hicks (shin) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions.

    The 31-year-old linebacker was able to log a full week of practice, but he must be activated off injured reserve in order to play Sunday. According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Hicks told reporters that his leg is feeling great, and it's very likely that he'll be able to return to the field at some point this season. If Hicks is unable to suit up in Week 16, expect Troy Dye to serve as the Vikings' top right inside linebacker.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Deemed full participant Wednesday

    Hicks (shin) was estimated as a full participant in Wednesday's practice walkthrough.

    Hicks is still on IR, but he was designated to return Tuesday. The veteran linebacker hasn't played since Week 10, but he said Tuesday that he feels 100 percent healthy and wants to suit up Sunday against Detroit, per Mark Craig of the Star Tribune. That seems to be a possibility, though the Vikings will no doubt want to ensure that Hicks is fully recovered before activating him off IR and opening a spot on the active roster.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Wants to play this weekend

    Hicks (shin) is hoping to play against the Lions on Sunday, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Hicks has yet to have his 21-day practice window opened, but head coach Kevin O'Connell stated Monday that it would happen this week, which would likely put Hicks back to practicing with the team Wednesday. Depending on how his leg responds, it's feasible the 31-year-old could return in Week 16, but he'll need to be added to the 53-man roster ahead of Sunday's divisional clash with Detroit.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Designated to return from IR

    Hicks (shin) was designated to return from injured reserve by the Vikings on Tuesday, Lindsey Young of the team's official website reports.

    Hicks will now officially open his 21-day practice window in which the team can activate him from injured reserve at any point, potentially as soon as Sunday's matchup with the Lions. The linebacker has been out since Week 10 and he is itching to get back out on the field according to Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Getting closer to return

    Hicks (shin) will be designated to return from injured reserve this week, according to head coach Kevin O'Connell.

    Once Hicks is designated to return from IR, he'll have his 21-day window to practice with the team opened before he needs to be moved to the active roster. This could lead to him returning as soon as Sunday against the Lions, but the Texas product may need more time than that before he returns to play. His practice status beginning Wednesday, assuming he does have his 21-day window opened, will be worth monitoring to get a better idea of his potential availability for Week 16.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Optimistic for late-season return

    Hicks (shin) told reporters Thursday that he's optimistic about returning late in the Vikings' season, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Hicks suffered a shin injury -- one that was subsequently further diagnosed as compartment syndrome -- during Minnesota's Week 11 win over the Saints, and he's been on injured reserve for the team's last two games. The veteran linebacker affirmed the comments that defensive coordinator Brian Flores made Tuesday, telling reporters that Hicks has a shot to return before the end of the season. Hicks must remain on IR for at least two more weeks before he can assume the Vikings' top inside linebacker duties once again.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Could make late-season return

    Defensive coordinator Brian Flores told reporters Tuesday that there's some optimism that Hicks (shin) could return before the end of the regular season, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

    The Vikings' top inside linebacker was placed on injured reserve in mid-November after suffering a shin injury during Week 10's win over the Saints. Hicks had been having one of the best seasons of his long career, as he was averaging 8.7 stops per game over Minnesota's first 10 outings, which would be his best output since 2019. The 31-year-old has missed the Vikings' last two games, and if he's able to return to the field at some point this season, the earliest he can suit up would be Week 16.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Shifts to IR

    The Vikings placed Hicks (shin) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Hicks' move to IR comes after he required an emergency surgical procedure Sunday to alleviate "compartment syndrome" related to a shin contusion he suffered in the Vikings' win over the Saints earlier in the day, per Alec Lewis of The Athletic. The standout linebacker has since been released from the hospital, but he'll be sidelined for at least the Vikings' next four games while he recovers. His absence should pave the way for Ivan Pace to serve as the Vikings' defensive play caller, while Troy Dye and practice-squad signee Anthony Barr look like the top candidates to fill Hicks' vacated snaps at linebacker. Through Minnesota's first 10 games, he tallied 87 tackles, one sack, one interception, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Leaves hospital

    Hicks was released from the hospital Tuesday after undergoing surgery Sunday to alleviate swelling in his lower leg due to compartment syndrome, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Hicks has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, but his release from the hospital should be good news for his recovery moving forward. It's still unclear how much time, if any, the 31-year-old may miss beyond Week 11.
