Hicks (neck) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams.
Hicks won't return to Sunday's game after suffering a neck injury. Isaiah Simmons and De'Vondre Campbell will likely play most of the defensive snaps as the 28-year-old linebacker will not rejoin the Cardinals during this matchup.
Hicks left Sunday's game against the Rams due to a neck injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear whether Hicks will return to Sunday's game after suffering a neck injury. The middle linebacker has consistently been a solid asset for the Cardinals' defense, and it is likely Tanner Vallejo or De'Vondre Campbell will take over Hicks' duties if he's unable to rejoin the matchup.
Hicks posted eight tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 26-7 road win over the Giants.
Hicks hasn't put up double-digit tackles since Week 6, but he's been consistent in seven contests in the meantime, averaging exactly seven stops per game. Because he rarely contributes turnovers or sacks, the output isn't exactly appealing for IDP purposes, but fantasy managers at least know what to expect with the aforementioned steady weekly output.
Hicks had eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 32-30 victory over the Bills.
Hicks leads the Cardinals with 74 stops, and his 8.5 tackles for loss are second only to Haason Reddick's 10.5. The middle of the team's defense is banged up at the moment, with three starters -- free safety Budda Baker (groin/ankle, limited), inside linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (calf, DNP) and strong safety Jalen Thompson (shoulder, DNP) -- all appearing on Monday's estimated practice report. If any of the trio are sidelined Thursday at Seattle, Hicks could be poised for his fourth outing of 10-plus tackles of the season.
Hicks (ankle/wrist) was taken off the injury report after a full practice Friday and doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game against Miami, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks was limited in practice earlier this week by a pair of injuries, but he overcame them to practice fully Friday and is primed to start at linebacker against the Dolphins. He has been a tackling machine this season, racking up 59 through seven games.
Hicks (ankle/wrist) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Hicks is tied for the team lead with Budda Baker, boasting 59 tackles through seven outings. That's a 16-game pace of 135 -- 15 shy of his 2019 tally -- but Hicks is tending to both ankle and wrist injuries. Considering he got on the practice field Wednesday, it's a good enough sign Hicks is trending toward an appearance Sunday versus the Dolphins. However, it may not be confirmed until the Cardinals' final Week 9 practice report.
Hicks left Sunday's game against the Seahawks during the fourth quarter due to an ankle injury, Mason Kern of Sports Illustrated reports.
While the extent of Hicks' injury was previously unclear, it has been confirmed by multiple sources that it was Hicks' ankle that was injured. In the event that Hicks is out after the Cardinals' Week 8 bye, Isaiah Simmons and Tanner Vallejo could slot in for additional snaps.
Hicks didn't take the field late in the fourth quarter and during overtime of Sunday's 37-34 win against the Seahawks due to an undisclosed injury, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Prior to his departure, Hicks posted seven tackles (four solo), bringing his total on the season to 59 (tied for eighth in the NFL). On Monday, coach Kliff Kingsbury wouldn't elaborate on the nature of Hicks' health concern, per Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. As a result, the general public may have to wait to get clarity on the injury, as the team has a Week 8 bye on the schedule.
Hicks had 10 (five solo) tackles, including two for a loss, in Monday's 38-10 win against the Cowboys.
Hicks has recorded at least five tackles in every game this season. This week he doubled that number and played 97 percent of the defensive snaps. The middle linebacker has developed into a consistently solid IDP asset and should be primed for another successful day against the Seahawks on Sunday. In 2019, Hicks recorded 18 tackles in two matchups with the Seahawks.
Hicks had nine tackles (seven solo) and a pass defensed during Sunday's 30-10 road victory versus the Jets.
For the fourth time in five games this season, Hicks played every defensive snap for the Cardinals. But heavy usage has resulted in mixed results for Hicks. Between Week 1 and Week 3, he totaled 11 tackles (seven solo). In the other three contests, though, he notched at least nine each time en route to 31 (23 solo). Despite some inconsistency, Hicks leads Arizona's defense and sits in a tie for ninth in the NFL with his 42 tackles.
Hicks finished Sunday's game against the Panthers with 12 tackles (eight solo) and 3.5 tackles for loss.
Hicks has now finished in double digits in tackles in two of Arizona's last three games. He also tallied 77 defensive snaps played in Week 4, his highest amount thus far in 2020.
Hicks compiled 10 tackles (eight solo) and a tackle for loss during Sunday's 30-15 victory versus Washington.
One week removed from posting a pedestrian (for Hicks) six tackles, he got on track with his first double-digit tally of the season. In his first campaign in a Cardinals uniform in 2019, he reached that threshold in nine of 16 games while playing every single defensive snap. On this latter point, Hicks actually missed five of 66 defensive snaps Week 2, but no health concern has yet been mentioned for the formerly injury-prone linebacker.
Hicks managed six tackles (four solo) and one tackle for loss during Sunday's 24-20 victory in San Francisco.
While racking up the third-most tackles (150) in the NFL last year, Hicks had two outings with five stops and two more with six. Considering he played 100 percent of the defensive snaps and a fair number on special teams for the 17th consecutive contest as a Cardinal this past Sunday, his second year in Arizona has a good chance to replicate his 2019 performance. Hicks will attempt to bounce back Sunday versus the Washington Football Team.
Hicks ranked third in the NFL with 150 tackles (93 solo) in 16 games during the 2019 campaign.
Just three stops ahead of teammate Budda Baker, Hicks also tacked on nine pass defenses, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, 1.5 sacks and one fumble recovery. The production was a far cry from the four-year stint to begin his career with the Eagles, which was plagued by injuries (he played 43 of a possible 64 contests). Assuming the change of scenery has stabilized his medical chart, Hicks will be among the top IDPs to target for the 2020 season.
Hicks recorded six tackles and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 27-13 victory over Seattle.
On third-and-three with Seattle approaching the Cardinals' end zone, Hicks dropped running back Travis Homer for a loss to hold the Seahawks to a field goal. While not every game this season has gone as well as this one did, Hicks remains a huge part of this defense, and his play will be critical toward Arizona's chances of upsetting the Rams in the season finale.
Hicks (calf) does not have an injury tag for Sunday's game against Seattle, Mike Jurecki of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks missed Wednesday's practice but upgraded to limited and then full participation over the course of the week. He'll look to add to his 131 tackles (82 solo) Sunday.
Hicks (calf) was listed as a limited participant during Thursday's practice, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.
Hicks took a step in the right direction with his practice participation Thursday, despite it being limited in scope. The linebacker missed Wednesday's session. If Hicks is able to ramp up to full activity Friday, it's a good bet he'll be on the field Sunday in Seattle.
Hicks missed Wednesday's practice due to a calf injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks has dealt with calf concerns in each of the last three seasons and even missed four games in 2018 as a result. Considering Hicks' rich injury history, the Cardinals may be taking a cautious approach with the NFL's fifth-leading tackler (130), who also has recorded three interceptions, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks on the season. Hicks will have two more chances to get on the practice field this week before the team potentially gives him a game-day designation ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.
Hicks notched 10 tackles (nine solo) and one tackle for loss during Sunday's 38-24 victory against the Browns.
With double-digit tallies in eight of 14 games this season, Hicks leads all Cardinals with 130 tackles, good for fifth most in the league and exactly five more than teammate Budda Baker. Hicks has supplemented his line with three interceptions, two forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks, helping to establish himself as an IDP force after an injury-filled four years with the Eagles.
Hicks recorded five tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 23-17 defeat against the Steelers.
Hicks came into Week 14 leading the NFL in tackles, but a slow game in which each team ran only 57 plays limited the linebacker's production. He will have a chance to yet again put up double-digit tackle numbers next week against the Browns.
