  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Effective once again

    Holcomb tallied eight tackles (four solo) during the Commanders' 25-10 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

    Holcomb led the Commanders in tackles over the last two weeks, and he tied for the team lead in the category during Sunday's defeat. The 26-year-old had a career-high 142 tackles last year and has 32 tackles (14 solo) and a pass defense over the first four games in 2022.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Team-high nine stops in loss

    Holcomb recorded nine tackles and one pass defense during Sunday's 24-8 loss to the Eagles.

    Holcomb led the team in tackles for a second straight game and has 24 total tackles across the first three weeks of the season. The 2019 fifth-round pick has two 100-tackle campaigns across his first three years in the NFL, including a career-high 142 stops last season.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Team-high 10 tackles in loss

    Holcomb recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 36-27 loss to the Lions.

    Holcomb got off to a slow start in the season opener and dealt with a quadriceps issue leading up to Week 2. However, he cleared the injury report ahead of Sunday and bounced back by recording his first game of the season with at least 10 tackles. The linebacker has recorded 100-plus tackles twice during his first three years in the NFL, and after just two games, he appears on pace for a third such season.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: No injury designation for Week 2

    Holcomb doesn't have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Lions.

    Holcomb popped up on the injury report Thursday as a limited participant due to a quadriceps issue, but he appears to be a full-go heading into Week 2. The fourth-year linebacker recorded five tackles (two solo) across 62 snaps in the season opener and is set for another sizable role against Detroit.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Logs limited practice

    Holcomb (quadriceps) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic repots.

    Holcomb did not appear on the team's injury report Wednesday, and he appeared to log a full practice. The move to a limited session Thursday could just be precautionary. However, it will still shift the 26-year-old into the questionable territory. Holcomb is a significant piece to the Commanders' defense as their starting middle linebacker, so any potential absence would certainly be a detriment to the unit. If he is unable to suit up Sunday against the Lions, Milo Eifler would likely be called upon to start.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Notches five tackles Week 1

    Holcomb had five tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 28-22 win over Jacksonville.

    Holcomb is coming off a career 142-tackle 2021 campaign, and he's off to a solid start in 2022. The starting linebacker boasts minimal upside as a pass rusher, but his three-down role is more than enough to put him on the IDP fantasy radar.

  • 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.
