  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: IR-bound with foot injury

    Washington placed Holcomb (foot) on its injured reserve Friday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. Holcomb had already missed the Commanders' last four games dealing with the foot injury, and after meeting with a specialist before landing on IR, he'll now have to miss at least the next four games. Until Holcomb is healthy enough to play again, Jamin Davis, David Mayo and Jon Bostic should continue to do the heavy lifting at linebacker for Washington.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Visiting specialist

    Coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Holcomb is meeting with a foot specialist, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Holcomb has missed four straight games due to a foot injury, and he will now visit a specialist to undergo further examination. It remains to be seen whether the starting linebacker will be able to suit up Week 12 versus the Falcons, but if he's unavailable, Jon Bostic could draw another start Sunday.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Still sitting out practice Friday

    Holcomb (foot) did not participate at practice Friday ahead of Monday's game at Philadelphia, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Holcomb has missed Washington's last two games, and not having practiced this week, there's not much reason to expect he'll be available for Monday night. If Holcomb indeed cannot go in Week 10, the Commanders would probably continue to lean on Jon Bostic and sophomore first-rounder Jamin Davis to pick up the slack.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Still not practicing

    Holcomb (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Holcomb was sidelined for Week 8 due to a foot injury he presumably picked up during the team's Week 7 win over the Packers. His lack of participation during Wednesday's session suggests he's trending towards a second straight absence, but Holcomb will have two more opportunities to practice before Washington needs to make a decision on the linebacker's availability for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Won't play Sunday

    Holcomb (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Colts, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Holcomb presumably picked up the foot injury during Washington's Week 7 win over Green Bay and wasn't able to practice at all during Week 8 prep. The 26-year-old is the team's leading tackler, so his absence will be a significant blow for a matchup against Jonathan Taylor and the Colts. Jon Bostic and David Mayo are both candidates for increased roles with Holcomb sidelined.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Sits out again Thursday

    Holcomb (foot) was listed as a non-participant on the Commanders' injury report Thursday. Holcomb remain sidelined with a foot injury for the second day in a row, though it's unclear when this issue first arose. The 26-year-old has tallied 69 tackles and one pass defended while playing every defensive snap in all but one game this season, so an absence in Sunday's game against the Colts would be significant. If Holcomb does not improve his activity in practice Friday, then David Mayo could see increased usage alongside Jamin Davis in Week 8.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Collects 12 tackles on TNF

    Holcomb recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) during Thursday's 12-7 win over the Bears. Holcomb now has back-to-back weeks with double-digit tackles, as he accumulated 12 stops Thursday against Chicago and 16 tackles Week 5 versus the Titans. The 26-year-old is on pace for a 170-tackle 2022 campaign, which would break his previous career high of 142 he set a season ago. The Commanders are scheduled to host the Packers next Sunday, where Holcomb should once again be a key asset for the team's defense.

  • Commanders' Cole Holcomb: Ties career high with 15 tackles

    Holcomb recorded 15 tackles (11 solo) during Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Titans. Holcomb's previous career high in stops came during Week 3 a season ago against Buffalo, but he managed to reach that figure again Sunday versus Tennessee. The 26-year-old linebacker has played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps in four out of the first five games in 2022, and he'll likely operate in a similar role in Thursday night's contest against Chicago.

  • 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.

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: Leads team with 14 tackles

    Holcomb posted 14 tackles (10 solo) during Sunday's 43-21 loss to Washington. Holcomb has recorded double-digit tackles in two of the first three games of the season. The 25-year-old linebacker posted a 100-tackle season during his rookie campaign, but he only played in 11 games last year, which caused him to fall short of the milestone two years in a row. If he can stay healthy, Holcomb is on pace for his best defensive season yet.
