  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Enjoys career year

    Holcomb played 16 of 17 games in 2021 and finished with career highs for tackles (142), pass defenses (seven) and interceptions (two).

    Holcomb was one of the few guys who played up to or above his reputation in 2021 on a disappointing Washington defense, though PFF's grading system (54.8, 40th of 88 linebackers) doesn't paint as pretty of a picture as the counting stats. Either way, the 25-year-old linebacker seemingly did enough to retain a three-down role for the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, after playing 100 percent of Washington's defensive snaps in 15 of his 16 appearances in 2021. A 2019 fifth-round pick, Holcomb won't cost Washington much in 2022 if he plays out his rookie contract, but there'll likely be discussions this offseason for an extension.

  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Returns from COVID list

    Holcomb was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Holcomb only missed five days, but it was enough for him to be absent from Washington's loss to the Cowboys on Sunday. Now healthy, Holcomb should return to his starting outside linebacker job in Week 17 against the Eagles.

  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Holcomb (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Holcomb is the latest Washington linebacker to be placed on the COVID list. With the majority of the position dealing with some kind of issue, the team could be short-handed Sunday against the Cowboys. Holcomb could return in time if he is vaccinated and able to produce two negative tests more than 24 hours apart. If not though, Nate Orchard could be looking at a significant boost in work Sunday.

  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Limited Wednesday

    Holcomb (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice session, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Holcomb was productive in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, as he tied for the team lead in tackles while returning an interception for a touchdown. However, he apparently sustained an ankle injury in the contest. He'll likely need to practice in a full capacity Thursday or Friday if he hopes to avoid the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

  • Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Pick-six in loss

    Holcomb tied for the team lead in tackles and was on the field for 100 percent of the defensive snaps for the 12th time in 13 games this season.
