Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Makes 10 starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb played 11 regular-season games in 2020, recording 72 tackles (45 solo), 2.5 sacks and one interception.

The second-year pro entered Week 1 as a backup and missed weeks two through five with a knee injury, but he ended up starting 11 of Washington's past 12 games, including the playoff loss to Tampa Bay. Holcomb often worked in a three-down role, closing out the year with at least seven tackles and a 73 percent snap share in six consecutive games. His rate of one tackle for every 7.7 snaps hints at considerable IDP value if his role from November-January carries over to his third pro season in 2021. PFF graded Holcomb at No. 24 out of 88 qualified linebackers, seven spots behind teammate Kevin Pierre-Louis and 26 spots ahead of Jon Bostic. Pierre-Louis is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, while Bostic has one year remaining on his contract, and Holcomb has two years left.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Posts 11 tackles against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb recorded 11 tackles (six solo) and a sack across 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Holcomb cleared concussion protocol Sunday in time to take the field and it's a good thing he did, as the linebacker led the team in tackles. He now has 65 tackles (39 solo), 2.5 sacks, a pass defensed and an interception through 10 games this season.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Clear of concussion for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (concussion) is active heading into Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb was able to log back-to-back full practice sessions to close out the week Thursday and Friday, and he's now been officially cleared after being deemed unavailable for a Week 15 matchup against Seattle. The second-year linebacker from North Carolina has started eight of the nine games he's appeared in this season after starting 15 times as a rookie. He's averaged six tackles per game in 2020 with a total of one interception and 1.5 sacks.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Practices in full Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (concussion) logged another full practice session Friday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

That marks two straight full practice sessions for Holcomb, so he appears good to go for Sunday's clash against Carolina assuming he is able to clear the league's concussion protocol.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Logs full practice session Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb missed Sunday's loss to Seattle after suffering the concussion during practice last week, but his ability to practice in full Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session bodes well for his chances of returning Week 16. Still, he'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol before he's officially able to suit up.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Unavailable for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Holcomb appeared to have suffered a concussion during the practice week, and he'll enter the league's five-step concussion protocol. Kevin Pierre-Louis (ankle) will also sit out, meaning Khaleke Hudson, Jared Norris and Thomas Davis likely will rotate in at the outside linebacker positions against an efficient Seahawks run game.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Eight tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb recorded eight tackles (five solo) across 79 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Holcomb has burst onto the scene the past three weeks, recording 27 tackles (15 solo) and 0.5 sacks in the process. He'll now shift his focus to Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Tallies 10 tackles Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb recorded 10 tackles (six solo) and 0.5 sacks in Thursday's 41-16 win over the Cowboys.

Holcomb's 10 tackles marked a season high for the second-year UNC product. He figures to see a majority of the snaps at outside linebacker again in Week 13 against the Steelers.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Cleared of knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) isn't on Washington's injury report to start the week, Nicki Jhablava of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb has missed the past four games with a knee injury, but he's practicing fully to start the week, putting the 2019 fifth-rounder on pace to suit up Sunday against the Giants. He's projected to work in a reserve linebacker role.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Can't go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Holcomb will be absent for a fourth straight game, as the knee injury he picked up in the season opener continues to linger. The 2019 fifth-round pick is a depth player, so unless Jon Bostic gets hurt, Holcomb's absence won't shake up the defensive dynamic.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Gets questionable designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington has listed Holcomb (knee) as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Rams.

Holcomb was a full participant at practice all week, so his questionable status is presumably a bit cautious. The second-year linebacker has been sidelined since Week 2. If given the green light, he is expected to provide depth at linebacker and help contribute on special teams.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Full-go Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb is slated to return to the lineup Sunday against the Rams. The 2019 fifth-round pick played in the season opener but stuck to special teams, so he'll likely serve in a similar role unless starting middle linebacker Jon Bostic gets hurt.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Missing another contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Holcomb is set to miss his third consecutive contest due to a lingering knee injury. His absence opens up snaps on special teams.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Holcomb will miss a second-straight contest due to a knee injury sustained during the season opener. When healthy, he'll resume contributing on special teams for Washington.

September 18, 2020 01:28 PM
Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Unavailable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Holcomb exited the season opener after playing 21 special-teams snaps and no defensive snaps. The Football Team may activate a practice squad linebacker to add depth, especially if Thomas Davis (calf) is ruled out.

Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Able to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb (knee) was able to return to the team's Week 1 contest against the Eagles.

Holcomb suffered a knee injury earlier in the contest but returned to action after being cleared. He's tallied one tackle to this point.

September 13, 2020 02:32 PM
Football Team's Cole Holcomb: Suffers knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb is questionable to return to the team's Week 1 contest with a knee injury.

It's unclear how Holcomb suffered the injury or if he'll be required to miss a significant amount of time. His absence would leave the team with only three active inside linebackers.

Redskins' Cole Holcomb: Makes 15 starts in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb played all 16 games in 2019, piling up 101 tackles (70 solo), one sack and three forced fumbles.

The rookie fifth-round pick made 15 starts and played 63.3 percent of defensive snaps, stepping in at inside linebacker after Reuben Foster suffered an ACL tear during the offseason program. There's no assurance of a similar role moving forward, considering Holcomb finished 58th in PFF's grading among 88 qualified linebackers, and he'll be working with a new coaching staff in 2020.

Redskins' Cole Holcomb: Four more tackles in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb notched four solo tackles in Sunday's 41-35 loss to the Giants.

Holcomb has been a steady tackle-producer this season and currently has 99 on the year. He'll look to reach triple digits Week 17 at Dallas.

December 17, 2019 06:52 PM
Redskins' Cole Holcomb: Credited with six tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holcomb logged six solo tackles in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Holcomb needs just five tackles to reach 100 in his rookie season. He also has one sack and three forced fumbles on the year.
