Hicks (groin) will play in Sunday's game versus the Panthers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Hicks elevated to full practice participation Friday. He has played every defensive snap this season, registering 25 tackles (third highest in NFL) and a pass breakup. Hicks is a solid IDP asset for Week 3, as the Panthers will be without Cam Newton and may focus on the ground game.
Hicks (groin) was limited in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Hicks' limited participation Thursday is an upgrade from his non-participation in Wednesday's practice. The 27-year-old has expressed confidence in his status for Sunday's game against Carolina. Through two games this season, Hicks has racked up 25 total tackles, which ranks as the second-most in the league behind Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly, who each own 26 tackles.
Hicks didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Despite the DNP, Hicks told Katherine Fitzgerald of the Arizona Republic on Wednesday that he's "fine" and will "be out there Sunday" against the Panthers. Hicks has made a smooth transition from Philadelphia to Arizona, matching Luke Kuechly for second in tackles in the NFL with 25 through two games. Assuming he puts his current health concern behind him, Hicks will look to keep up his torrid start to the season.
Hicks recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) and a pass defensed across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.
Hicks led the Cardinals in tackles for the second straight week and currently has the second-highest tackle count in the league at 25. He continues to play every defensive snap, so there's a good chance his double-digit tackle streak could continue Sunday when the Cardinals take on the Panthers.
Hicks recorded 14 tackles (eight solo) across 88 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Lions.
Hicks was all over the field Sunday, as he led the team in tackles, including two for a loss. He also played in every defensive snap for the Cardinals. With a performance like this, the former Eagle is putting himself on the map as a potential IDP breakout candidate.
Hicks intends to sign a four-year, $36 million contract with Arizona, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The deal reportedly includes $20 million guaranteed, including a $12 million signing bonus. Hicks had some trouble staying on the field in Philadelphia, but there's never been much question about his performance, with the 2015 third-round pick recording 254 tackles (180 solo), 19 passes defensed, seven interceptions, six fumble recoveries and five sacks in 43 career games (40 starts). Hicks will need to adjust from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 scheme, though he does have some experience with the latter from his rookie season under Chip Kelly. There's no shortage of IDP potential, with Hicks likely handling a three-down role in the desert.
Hicks made nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's playoff loss to the Saints and finished the regular season with 91 tackles (61 solo), three sacks and five passes defensed.
Despite missing four weeks with a calf injury, the tackle and sack numbers represent career highs. But it was yet another shortened season for the 26-year-old, who has only played 16 games once in four pro seasons. If the Texas product can shake the injury-prone label in 2019, he could have some serious upside in IDP leagues.
Hicks (calf) is active Sunday against Washington.
Hicks did not take the practice field Wednesday or Thursday, but a limited session Friday was enough to get a spot on the active roster. With what will likely be another start at middle linebacker, Hicks will look to build on what's already a career high in combined tackles (90) and sacks (3) in his fourth NFL season.
Hicks (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.
Hick did not practice Thursday due to a calf injury and was a limited participant Friday. If the starting linebacker were to sit out versus Washington, B.J. Bello would likely benefit from increased snaps.
Hicks (calf) did not participate at practice Thursday.
Hicks was able to return from the calf issue Week 16 against the Texans and wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he appears to have aggravated the injury. Friday's practice participation should provide a better idea as to the severity of the issue, but he'll likely need to practice fully in order to avoid an injury designation.
Hicks (calf) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hicks appears on track to retake the field for the first time since injuring his calf over a month ago. Barring any setbacks, expect the fourth-year pro to draw the start at middle linebacker versus Houston.
Hicks (calf) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.
Hicks was limited Wednesday in what was his first practice since injuring his calf over a month ago. His full participation Thursday indicates he'll likely be able to play in Sunday's game against the Texans. The return of the starting middle linebacker could pay large dividends for an Eagles team that is still fighting for a playoff berth. If he plays and is limited, look for B.J. Bello to again see some extra snaps.
Hicks (calf) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Hicks' limited session Wednesday is his first time participating in practice since injuring his calf Nov. 18. The fourth-year pro is making significant strides in his recovery, but it remains to be seen whether Hicks will manage to suit up against the Texans on Sunday.
Hicks (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hicks will sit out his fourth straight game. The fourth-year pro has already put up a career year with 85 tackles and three sacks in 10 games, and he'll shift his focus to Week 16's matchup versus the Texans. B.J. Bello is expected to start at middle linebacker in his place.
The Eagles ruled out Hicks (calf) for Sunday's game at Dallas.
Hicks has yet to practice since injuring his calf Nov. 18 against the Saints. At the time, he was considered week-to-week by the Eagles, so the best indication that a return is possible will be an appearance at practice. Instead, he'll miss a third consecutive contest, yielding reps to Nate Gerry.
Hicks (calf) did not practice Thursday, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.
Hicks has missed two consecutive games due to a lingering calf injury and appears on track to sit out Sunday's divisional tilt against the Cowboys. If the fourth-year pro is indeed unable to go Week 14, expect Kamu Grugier-Hill to draw another start.
Hicks (calf) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Redskins.
Hicks is set to miss back-to-back games with a lingering calf injury that has him in the week-to-week zone. Kamu Grugier-Hill is expected to get the start once more.
Hicks (calf) is expected to be out a little longer, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hicks has missed one game due to his calf injury and remains week-to-week. Kamu Grugier-Hill will continue seeing extra snaps as long as Hicks remains sidelined.
Hicks (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hicks sustained the calf injury in last Sunday's loss to the Saints, and it will cost him at least one week of action. The injury should open an opportunity for Kamu Grugier-Hill, as the Eagles will need to shuffle their linebacker rotation in Hicks' absence.
Hicks (calf) didn't practice Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hicks was labeled week-to-week Monday, so the expectation is that he'll be unavailable for this weekend's matchup with the Giants. Nigel Bradham would likely shift over from outside to middle linebacker in the event Hicks is ruled out.
