Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Wraps up moderate breakout campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel had 48 tackles (29 solo), 5.5 sacks, four defended passes, three forced fumbles and one fumble that he recovered for a touchdown across 16 games in 2020.

Van Ginkel spent most of his rookie season in 2019 dealing with a foot injury, ultimately only suiting up for six contests, but he emerged as a consistent contributor on defense while playing a full 16-game slate in 2020. The second-year pro usually lingered around 50 percent of defensive snaps per game, though he jumped into a starting role (80-plus percent of snaps) during the final four games of the regular season. Given the ability Van Ginkel demonstrated as a pass rusher this season, he'll need to be monitored as a potential breakout candidate for 2021.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Two sacks against Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel recorded eight tackles (seven solo), including two sacks, and a pass defensed across 56 defensive snaps in Saturday's win over the Raiders.

The second-year linebacker logged his first sack since Week 5, bringing his season-total to 4.5. His eight tackles in the contest were also a single-game career high. He'll look to finish out the season strong Sunday at Buffalo.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Officially clear of concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said that Van Ginkel is out of the concussion protocol, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Van Ginkel logged a full practice session Wednesday, making this announcement from Flores little more than a formality. Barring any sort of setback between now and Sunday, Van Ginkel appears ready to suit up against the Rams, having been afforded extra time to recuperate by Miami's Week 7 bye.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel (concussion) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Coach Brian Flores said Monday that the 25-year-old was still in the concussion protocol, but he was able to practice with no limitations Wednesday. Van Ginkel sustained the concussion during the Week 6 win over the Jets, but it appears he won't miss any games due to the well-timed bye week.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Van Ginkel is making progress but remains in concussion protocol, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Van Ginkel still has plenty of time to clear the league's protocol and return to the lineup this Sunday against the Rams. If he's able to get back in the fold, his role will depend on whether Kyle Van Noy (groin) does the same. If Van Noy misses another week, Van Ginkel could start Sunday, but the second-year linebacker out of Wisconsin is in line for a decent workload either way.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel has been diagnosed with a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game versus the Jets, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Van Ginkel started in place of Kyle Van Noy (groin) on Sunday, but now he's done for the day as well. Sam Eguavoen is expected to see an increase in usage for the rest of the game. Van Ginkel will aim to clear the league's concussion protocol by the Week 8 matchup against the Rams.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Exits game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel left Sunday's game against the Jets while being evaluated for a concussion, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

This is tough news for the Dolphins, as they're already without Kyle Van Noy (groin) on Sunday. Van Ginkel will enter concussion protocol, and he'll need to be cleared by independent league doctors. As long as the Wisconsin product is out, Shaq Lawson and Sam Eguavoen will handle outside linebacker duties.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Shows promise in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel accumulated 15 tackles (11 solo), one sack and one fumble recovery across six regular-season games in 2019.

The rookie fifth-round pick began the season on injured reserve due to a foot issue. His role on defense ramped up upon his return to the field Week 12, culminating in a six-tackle performance during the season finale against New England, in which Van Ginkel handled 98 percent of snaps on defense. He'll benefit from another offseason to develop in Miami.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Reinstated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel was reinstated from injured reserve Wednesday, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Van Ginkel has yet to make his NFL debut but figures to do so in the coming weeks after he was activated off IR, fully recovered from a foot injury that has kept him on the shelf since being drafted in the fifth round of the 2019 draft.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Designated to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, meaning he's one of two players the Dolphins designated to return from IR, Alain Poupart of the team's official site reports.

This opens the three-week window for the Dolphins to activate Van Ginkel from IR, and the rookie fifth-rounder could return as soon as Sunday against the Bills. The Dolphins' brass is likely excited to see what Van Ginkel can bring to the table at the top level after compiling 59 tackles -- 9.5 for a loss -- and 5.5 sacks over 12 games during his senior year at Wisconsin.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Could return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Ginkel (foot) could return from injured reserve this season, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Coach Brian Flores said Van Ginkel is "not quite there yet, but he's working his way back." The rookie fifth-round pick out of Wisconsin landed on injured reserve prior to the season opener with the foot injury, but there's still a chance he could make his NFL debut in 2019.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Van Ginkel (foot) on injured reserve Friday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

The rookie fifth-round pick projected to begin his career with the Dolphins as a special-teams asset while working to develop into a contributor on defense. A foot injury appears to have delayed those plans, and Van Ginkel will now likely spend the 2019 campaign on IR.

Dolphins' Andrew Van Ginkel: From Wisconsin to South Beach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins selected Van Ginkel in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 151st overall.

Van Ginkel transferred to Wisconsin after beginning his career at South Dakota, where he was a backfield terror off the edge. As a Badger, he picked up 12.0 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss in two years and was named Third-Team All-Big Ten as a senior. Van Ginkel tested extremely well at the combine with jumps and agility drills all in the 82nd percentile or better. He'll likely start out as a special teamer, but the instincts and athleticism are strong enough to where he's worth a fifth-round gamble.
