Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Wraps up moderate breakout campaign
Van Ginkel had 48 tackles (29 solo), 5.5 sacks, four defended passes, three forced fumbles and one fumble that he recovered for a touchdown across 16 games in 2020.
Van Ginkel spent most of his rookie season in 2019 dealing with a foot injury, ultimately only suiting up for six contests, but he emerged as a consistent contributor on defense while playing a full 16-game slate in 2020. The second-year pro usually lingered around 50 percent of defensive snaps per game, though he jumped into a starting role (80-plus percent of snaps) during the final four games of the regular season. Given the ability Van Ginkel demonstrated as a pass rusher this season, he'll need to be monitored as a potential breakout candidate for 2021.... See More ... See Less

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Remains in concussion protocol
Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Van Ginkel is making progress but remains in concussion protocol, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Van Ginkel still has plenty of time to clear the league's protocol and return to the lineup this Sunday against the Rams. If he's able to get back in the fold, his role will depend on whether Kyle Van Noy (groin) does the same. If Van Noy misses another week, Van Ginkel could start Sunday, but the second-year linebacker out of Wisconsin is in line for a decent workload either way.... See More ... See Less
