  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Could make late-season return

    Defensive coordinator Brian Flores told reporters Tuesday that there's some optimism that Hicks (shin) could return before the end of the regular season, Kevin Seifert of reports.

    The Vikings' top inside linebacker was placed on injured reserve in mid-November after suffering a shin injury during Week 10's win over the Saints. Hicks had been having one of the best seasons of his long career, as he was averaging 8.7 stops per game over Minnesota's first 10 outings, which would be his best output since 2019. The 31-year-old has missed the Vikings' last two games, and if he's able to return to the field at some point this season, the earliest he can suit up would be Week 16.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Shifts to IR

    The Vikings placed Hicks (shin) on injured reserve Tuesday.

    Hicks' move to IR comes after he required an emergency surgical procedure Sunday to alleviate "compartment syndrome" related to a shin contusion he suffered in the Vikings' win over the Saints earlier in the day, per Alec Lewis of The Athletic. The standout linebacker has since been released from the hospital, but he'll be sidelined for at least the Vikings' next four games while he recovers. His absence should pave the way for Ivan Pace to serve as the Vikings' defensive play caller, while Troy Dye and practice-squad signee Anthony Barr look like the top candidates to fill Hicks' vacated snaps at linebacker. Through Minnesota's first 10 games, he tallied 87 tackles, one sack, one interception, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

    Apparently, Hicks will likely need at least a week to recover, so it would seem he'll probably be sitting out in Week 11. If he does miss time, Troy Dye could be in line for an expanded role at inside linebacker.

  • Vikings' Jordan Hicks: Exits game with injury

    Hicks (shin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints, Kevin Seifert of reports.
