Giants' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Joining Big Blue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (chest) agreed Wednesday with the Giants on a one-year deal, according to his agency, Team IFA.

The 26-year-old spent the past two seasons in Minnesota and totaled 35 tackles (16 solo) and 3.5 sacks across 15 games in 2020. Odenigbo should at least work as a rotational edge rusher for the Giants in 2021.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Ruled out ahead of Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (chest) has been ruled out for the Vikings' Week 17 matchup against Detroit.

Odenigbo powered through an ankle injury to make his 15th start of the season last Friday during a Christmas afternoon loss to the Saints. The same can't be said for the 26-year-old's chest issue, however, as Sunday he'll be forced to miss his first game over two seasons as a Viking. Odenigbo registered 15 QB hits this season to mark a new career high, though his 3.5 sacks represent a step down from the output of seven he amassed a year ago.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Not on final injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (ankle) does not have an injury designation and is expected to start Friday against New Orleans.

Odenigbo suffered the ankle injury in last week's loss to Chicago but was able to log limited practice sessions Tuesday and Wednesday before practicing in full Thursday. As such, he'll be able to suit up for the Christmas Day clash, as he has done each week since joining Minnesota prior to the 2019 campaign.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Suffers ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears due to an ankle injury.

The 26-year-old had two tackles during the first half before exiting the game. Jordan Brailford and Hercules Mata'afa should see increased snaps while Odenigbo is unavailable.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Ready for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (shoulder/concussion) will play in Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Odenigbo has cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol and will avoid missing his first game since the 2018 season. The 26-year-old defensive end has started every game this season, generating 15 quarterback pressures and 2.5 sacks. He'll get a decent matchup in Week 12, as Teddy Bridgewater will be under center. Bridgewater has been sacked on 5.4 percent of dropbacks this season, and he's returning after missing last week's game with a sprained MCL.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Gets in limited work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (shoulder/concussion) worked in a limited capacity during Thursday's practice.

Odenigbo has battled a shoulder injury for several weeks and played through the issue. However, a bigger hurdle to availability for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Panthers is progressing through the league's concussion protocol. Odenigbo would be a big loss along the Vikings' defensive line, as he's logged snap rates above 65 percent in all but one contest to this point in the campaign.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (shoulder/concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Odenigbo was on the injury report with a shoulder issue for the last two weeks but didn't miss a practice. However, the fourth-year defensive end has been placed in the league's five-step concussion protocol, putting his Week 12 status into question. He'll need to return to the practice field by Friday to have a chance to play against the Panthers on Sunday.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Tacks on 1.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo recorded five tackles and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 40-23 loss to the Falcons.

Odenigbo won the starting defensive end job in training camp, but he got off to a slow start with no sacks through the first four games. He's turned it around recently, posting 2.5 sacks over the past two contests. The fourth-year pro's up to 11 quarterback pressures, too. He'll get Week 7 bye before setting his sights on a Week 8 matchup against Aaron Rodgers, who has been sacked just seven times in five outings.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Unproductive in starting assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo started at defensive end but did not have a tackle and recorded one QB hurry in Sunday's loss at Green Bay.

Odenigbo struggled as the defensive line failed to generate any pass rush against the Packers in a 43-34 loss. Odenigbo moved into the starting lineup with Danielle Hunter's neck injury, but didn't show much despite showing a spark in limited time last year. The 2017 seventh-round pick piled up 23 tackles and seven sacks in 2019, despite averaging just 23.3 snaps per game over 16 contests.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Will start against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo was named a starting DE following the news that Danielle Hunter (undisclosed) will be placed on IR, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hunter will miss at least three weeks, so Odenigbo has quite the opportunity to start opposite Yannick Ngakoue on the Vikings' defensive line. Odenigbo worked in a pass-rushing role in 2019 and averaged just 23.3 snaps per game over 16 contests, but he made the most of the limited usage. The 2017 seventh-round pick piled up 23 tackles and seven sacks, ranking third on the team in the latter category.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Activated from COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (illness) was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

After an uneventful 2018 campaign in Arizona, Odenigbo came out of nowhere to record seven sacks for the Vikings last season. He should resume his duties as a rotational player on the team's defensive line again in 2020.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Hits COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Odenigbo has either tested positive for the virus or is quarantining after exposure to someone who has. A source close to the 26-year-old, who looks primed to start for the Vikings in 2020, said "he'll definitely be OK."

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Notches seven sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo recorded 23 tackles (18 solo), seven sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries -- one of which he returned for a touchdown -- across 16 regular-season contests in 2019.

Odenigbo appeared in just one NFL game during the first two years of his career, but he found success as a rotational pass rusher with the Vikings in 2019. The Northwestern product will return in 2020, and he could be in line for a larger role should the team elect to move on from Everson Griffen.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (hamstring) is active for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints.

Odenigbo was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card contest, but he appears ready to take the field. The third-year pro plays a reserve role at defensive end behind Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Slated to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (hamstring) relayed that he'll play in Sunday's wild-card playoff game versus the Saints, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Odenigbo was listed as questionable, but it appears the third-year defensive end's injury is minor. He serves in a reserve role behind Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter, and his official status will be revealed at 11:35 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card game against the Saints.

Odenigbo plays a key rotational role along Minnesota's defensive line. If he were forced to sit out Sunday's wild-card tilt in New Orleans, Stephen Weatherly (illness) could be in line for an uptick in snaps if healthy.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Comes up clutch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo recorded two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Chiefs.

Odenigbo was quiet for most of the contest, but he came up big with a sack of Matt Moore on third down to keep the lead in the fourth quarter. This is his second straight game with a sack and his third of the year, so Odenigbo is making use of limited reps.

Vikings' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Gets playing time off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo played 12 snaps on defense in Sunday's win over Atlanta. He had one QB hurry, according to Pro Football Focus.

Odenigbo appeared in one game for Arizona last season before signing with the Vikings but did not appear in a game for Minnesota. It looks like he's found a place on the roster, but he will be a deep reserve at defensive end.

Ifeadi Odenigbo: Let go by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo was cut by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Odenigbo fell victim to Arizona's depleted offensive line depth and subsequent need at that position. There's a chance the Odenigbo will latch on elsewhere, but speculation is a bit premature at the moment. The second-year pro out of Northwestern has appeared in just one NFL game since entering the league in 2017.

Cardinals' Ifeadi Odenigbo: Claimed by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Odenigbo was claimed off waivers by the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Odenigbo was waived by the Browns on Sept. 22 and will look to help an Arizona defense that's in the middle of the pack with eight sacks. He was inactive for all three games during his time in Cleveland. Jacquies Smith was waived to make room for Odenigbo.
