Cardinals ILBs Jordan Hicks (calf) and Haason Reddick (knee) are both active for today’s game against the Saints.
The Cardinals have announced that 1st-round LB Zaven Collins will start at the "Mike" position, which belonged to Jordan Hicks last season. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team has given Hicks permission to pursue trade possibilities -- but also renegotiated his contract to a lower salary. So it's possible Hicks remains. Collins' mix of size (259 pounds) a 70th-percentile speed score and production both coming forward and in coverage give him huge immediate IDP upside.
Cardinals LB Jordan Hicks left Sunday night's game against the Seahawks with an ankle injury, according to Sports Illustrated's Mason Kern. We knew about Hicks being off the field late in that game, but the team was not forthcoming with news of the injury. We'll see about Hicks' status coming out of the Week 8 bye (unless we get further details in the meantime).
The Cardinals will be signing LB Jordan Hicks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hicks should grab a full-time role in the middle of Arizona's 3-4 base front and be in line for at least solid IDP value. His departure leaves a void in the middle of the Philly defense. We'll see how the team addresses it.
The Eagles left MLB Jordan Hicks off the final injury report after he put in full practices Thursday and Friday. Hicks started the week limited by the calf issue that cost him the past 4 games but looks ready for a full return. He'll find a Houston offense that presents a top-6 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs on the year. We've vaulted Hicks up the Week 16 IDP rankings. Elsewhere on the Philly D, DE Michael Bennett is questionable with his foot injury. He has played through questionable tags since Week 13 with the issue. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in Monday night's win over Washington and will miss the rest of the season. Najee Goode is the immediate backup. Weak-side LB Mychal Kendricks could finally be in for a playing-time boost, though we'll need to wait to see if that's the case. He missed Monday's game with a hamstring injury.
