  • Texans' Hardy Nickerson: Placed on IR

    Nickerson (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Nickerson had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tennessee, but he'll now be forced to miss at least three contests. However, the linebacker's absence shouldn't impact Houston's defensive plans.

  • Texans' Hardy Nickerson: Not playing against Titans

    Nickerson (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Tennessee.

    This means Nickerson will have to wait to make his third appearance of the season after seeing the field previously in Week 4 and Week 8. He's played only nine defensive snaps this season, though, so his absence shouldn't have a major impact on Houston's game plan this weekend.

  • Texans' Hardy Nickerson: Will not play Sunday

    Nickerson (concussion) will not play Sunday against the Dolphins.

    Nickerson was just bumped up from the practice squad Thursday, but he won't be cleared in time to play Sunday. Nickerson spent time on the active roster earlier this season, appearing in the Texans' Week 4 and Week 8 games against the Bills and Rams, respectively.

  • Texans' Hardy Nickerson: Promoted from practice squad

    Nickerson (concussion) was promoted to the Texans' active roster from the practice squad Wednesday.

  • Texans' Hardy Nickerson: Heading to Houston

    The Texans signed Nickerson to a contract Monday.

  • Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Signs to active roster

    The Vikings signed Nickerson to the active roster Saturday.

    The Vikings cut Nickerson on Dec. 1 after he played nine games for the team. In that stretch, Nickerson rarely played on defense and finished with just six tackles. He's back with the Vikings, however, and he'll add depth at middle linebacker with Eric Kendricks (calf) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

  • Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Works as No. 3 LB

    Nickerson had one total tackle and played 36 of the defense's 75 snaps in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

    Nickerson moved into a role as the No. 3 linebacker after Anthony Barr suffered a season-ending pectoral injury. However, his increase in playing time may not last long, as Todd Davis may overtake him on the depth chart once he gets up to speed after signing with the Vikings just before Week 3.

  • Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Signs with Vikings

    Nickerson signed with the Vikings' active roster Tuesday.

    Anthony Barr suffered a torn pectoral muscle this past Sunday and has been ruled out for the year, so Nickerson could play an immediate role for the Vikings. However, Troy Dye and Ryan Connelly are in line for the starting gig that Barr left behind.

  • Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Bumped up to active roster

    Nickerson was promoted to the Vikings' active roster Saturday, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

    Nickerson failed to secure a spot on the team's initial 53-man roster, but the new practice squad rules allow two extra players to get activated in each game. There's a good chance he makes his Vikings debut as a result, working as one of the team's top reserve linebackers.

  • Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Lands in Minnesota

    The Vikings signed Nickerson on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 26-year-old gets a chance to compete for a roster spot after Minnesota placed Quentin Poling (undisclosed) on injured reserve. Nickerson played a reserve role in Cincinnati over the last three seasons.

    Nickerson will come off the bench during Sunday's contest against the Browns, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

  • Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Tallies 11 tackles in loss

    Nickerson recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

    Nickerson drew the start Sunday in place of Preston Brown (leg) despite seeing just 36 defensive snaps the last three weeks combined. He didn't disappoint, putting up a career high in tackles. Through 10 games this season Nickerson has 38 tackles (25 solo) and a pass defensed.

  • Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Starting versus Ravens

    Nickerson will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game versus the Ravens.

    With Preston Brown (knee) inactive, Nickerson will make his fifth NFL start. Nickerson got plenty of work over the first three weeks of the year, making 19 tackles and breaking up a pass, but he's been largely relegated to the bench since then. He'll get the first crack at rookie starting quarterback Lamar Jackson.

  • Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Posts eight tackles in win

    Nickerson had eight tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed in Thursday's victory against Baltimore.

    Nickerson received the start at middle linebacker with Preston Brown (ankle) sidelined, and played all but one defensive snap in his absence. Brown will have additional time to recuperate for Week 3, and his availability should be the deciding factor in Nickerson's workload next week.
