  • Saints' Jalyn Holmes: Joins active roster

    The Saints signed Holmes to their active roster off the practice squad Wednesday.

    Holmes was scooped up by the Saints after the Vikings cut him loose before the regular-season opener. Last year, the 2018 fourth-round pick played in 14 games and recorded 36 tackles and two pass deflections. The Ohio State product was on New Orleans' active roster for Week 2 and saw 12 defensive snaps and recorded one tackle. It's unclear how big of a role he will have in Week 5.

  • Jalyn Holmes: Parts ways with Vikings

    Holmes was waived by the Vikings on Wednesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.

  • Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Ruled out for season finale

    Holmes (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Holmes will miss a second straight game to close out the 2020 campaign, which comes as no surprise given that he was unable to contribute any sort of practice participation throughout the week. The 24-year-old garnered only one start over Minnesota's first six games of the season, but an Oct. 22 trade of Yannick Ngakoue to Baltimore opened up opportunities for Holmes down the stretch. He registered eight straight starts between Weeks 8 and 15, concluding his season with 36 tackles, four QB hits and no sacks over 14 appearances.

  • Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Can't practice Thursday

    Holmes (groin) is not practicing Thursday, Eric Smith of the Vikings' official site reports.

    Holmes' groin injury kept him from facing the Saints in Week 16, and it looks like he's trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Lions. If he misses another game, D.J. Wonnum would be the favorite to inherit Holmes' role.

  • Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Will miss Friday's contest

  • Vikings' Jalyn Holmes: Starting role on tap

    Holmes is expected to slot into a staring role at defensive end following the trade of Yannick Ngakoue to Baltimore, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Holmes played roughly 50 percent of defensive snaps per game even with Ngakoue on the field, but he now looks set to handle a clear starting workload across from Ifeadi Odenigbo. Increased snaps could thrust Holmes onto the fantasy radar in IDP formats, though he hasn't historically produced much as a pass rusher.

    Holmes (not injury related) was downgraded to out for Monday's game against the Seahawks.
