    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: 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: Cleared to play Week 3

    Hicks (shin) isn't listed on Friday's injury report ahead of Sunday's home game against the Chargers.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Totals 11 tackles on TNF

    Hicks had 11 tackles (eight solo), including one tackle for loss, in Thursday's 34-28 loss to the Eagles. Despite missing part of the game due to a lower leg injury, Hicks was one of three Vikings to rack up double-digit tackles. Minnesota's defense spent most of the game on the field due to its inability to slow down Philadelphia's ground game, as the Eagles finished with 259 rushing yards. With 14 tackles through two games, Hicks is on pace to top 100 tackles for a fifth consecutive season.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Three tackles in season opener

    Hicks started at middle linebacker and had three tackles and a quarterback hurry in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. Hicks is a cornerstone of the defense, as he played on 66 of the defense's 68 snaps and was the only linebacker to remain on the field in all formations. He could get more sacks this season, as the Vikings appear likely to utilize more blitzes under new defensive coordinator Brian Flores.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Officially signs with Vikings

    Hicks signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Vikings on Tuesday.

  • Cardinals' Jordan Hicks: Another productive campaign

    Hicks accrued 116 tackles, five pass defenses, four sacks, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble in 17 games during the 2021 season. It marked Hicks' third consecutive campaign in the Arizona desert with at least 100 tackles, but they occurred at slower pace (6.8 per game) than the previous two seasons (7.4 in 2020, 9.4 in 2019). Even though he has one year remaining on his contract, he's also looking over his shoulder at two recent first-round picks at his position. Second-year pro Isaiah Simmons stepped into a more prominent role this season and also racked up 105 tackles, while rookie Zaven Collins saw fewer and fewer snaps as the weeks passed by. Hicks acknowledged to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site after the team's wild-card loss to the Rams that Simmons and Collins are the future at inside linebacker, meaning the seven-year veteran could find himself elsewhere in the fall.
