Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Works as No. 3 LB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson had one total tackle and played 36 of the defense's 75 snaps in Sunday's loss to Tennessee.

Nickerson moved into a role as the No. 3 linebacker after Anthony Barr suffered a season-ending pectoral injury. However, his increase in playing time may not last long, as Todd Davis may overtake him on the depth chart once he gets up to speed after signing with the Vikings just before Week 3.

Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Signs with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson signed with the Vikings' active roster Tuesday.

Anthony Barr suffered a torn pectoral muscle this past Sunday and has been ruled out for the year, so Nickerson could play an immediate role for the Vikings. However, Troy Dye and Ryan Connelly are in line for the starting gig that Barr left behind.

Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Bumped up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was promoted to the Vikings' active roster Saturday, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

Nickerson failed to secure a spot on the team's initial 53-man roster, but the new practice squad rules allow two extra players to get activated in each game. There's a good chance he makes his Vikings debut as a result, working as one of the team's top reserve linebackers.

Vikings' Hardy Nickerson: Lands in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings signed Nickerson on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old gets a chance to compete for a roster spot after Minnesota placed Quentin Poling (undisclosed) on injured reserve. Nickerson played a reserve role in Cincinnati over the last three seasons.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was promoted to the Bengals' 53-man roster Friday, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

Nickerson appeared in 30 games for the Bengals between 2017 and 2018 but was waived prior to Week 1. The 25-year-old should provide depth at middle linebacker behind Germaine Pratt.

Hardy Nickerson: Waived by Cincy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was waived by the Bengals on Sunday, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

Nickerson survived the initial waive of roster cuts but was let go Sunday to clear space for some waiver claims. The 25-year-old had 57 tackles (38 solo) and one forced fumble in 16 games last season (seven starts) and will remain with the team on the practice squad.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson will draw the start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game against the Browns, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Nickerson has seen an uptick in snaps the past couple weeks while playing as a backup linebacker. He's drawn one start this season, during which he tallied 11 tackles (eight solo). He'll look to put forth a similar performance Sunday.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Set for bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson will come off the bench during Sunday's contest against the Browns, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Nickerson played all 79 snaps in last week's loss to the Ravens, but has been benched while Vontaze Burfict moves to middle linebacker and Jordan Evans draws the start on the outside.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Tallies 11 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Nickerson drew the start Sunday in place of Preston Brown (leg) despite seeing just 36 defensive snaps the last three weeks combined. He didn't disappoint, putting up a career high in tackles. Through 10 games this season Nickerson has 38 tackles (25 solo) and a pass defensed.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Starting versus Ravens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game versus the Ravens.

With Preston Brown (knee) inactive, Nickerson will make his fifth NFL start. Nickerson got plenty of work over the first three weeks of the year, making 19 tackles and breaking up a pass, but he's been largely relegated to the bench since then. He'll get the first crack at rookie starting quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Posts eight tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson had eight tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed in Thursday's victory against Baltimore.

Nickerson received the start at middle linebacker with Preston Brown (ankle) sidelined, and played all but one defensive snap in his absence. Brown will have additional time to recuperate for Week 3, and his availability should be the deciding factor in Nickerson's workload next week.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson will start at middle linebacker against the Ravens on Thursday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Nickerson will start in place of Preston Brown (ankle) during Thursday Night Football. The 24-year-old logged four tackles after replacing an injured Brown midway through the team's season-opening victory over the Colts. Nickerson draws the start over Vincent Rey, who is still recovering from an ankle injury sustained in the preseason.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Steps up with Preston Brown hurt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson had four tackles after replacing an injured Preston Brown in Sunday's win over the Colts, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Brown could be a game-time decision Thursday night against the Ravens. Nickerson got the nod over Vincent Rey, as the latter was working his way back from an ankle injury.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Rejoins Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was promoted to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.

The Bengals needed to add some depth to their linebacking corps with Kevin Minter (elbow) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Nickerson has played in seven games with the Bengals so far this season, but is used far more often on special teams than he is on defense.

Hardy Nickerson: Waived by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was waived by the Bengals on Tuesday.

Nickerson was waived in order to make room for running back Brian Hill on the active roster. A former member of the Bengals' practice squad, Nickerson could rejoin the group if he passes through waivers. In seven games with the Bengals the reserve linebacker recorded two tackles, playing primarily on special teams.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Rejoins Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was promoted to the Bengals' 53-man roster Monday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

Nickerson has resided on the Bengals' practice squad since Vontaze Burfict returned from his three-game suspension in late September. The 23-year-old takes the roster spot of tight end Tyler Eifert (back), and he will likely assume a role on special teams with the Bengals' linebacker corps currently in full health.

Hardy Nickerson: Waived by Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson was waived by the Bengals on Thursday to clear a roster spot for the previously suspended Vontaze Burfict.

Nickerson saw snaps in all three of the Bengals' games so far this season, but he failed to record any tackles.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson (ankle) was not present on Monday's injury report, Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News reports.

Nickerson was designated probable to return after suffering the injury in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Ravens, but he ultimately did not see another snap. The play on which he suffered the injury was the only snap he played during the game.

Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Probable to return with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nickerson suffered an ankle injury Sunday against the Ravens and is probable to return.

The undrafted rookie is the backup for fifth-year middle linebacker, Kevin Minter, but has been tasked mostly with special teams duties. If Nickerson's condition worsens and he's unable to return, expect Carl Lawson or Jordan Evans to move to middle linebacker when Minter needs a breather.
