  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Chance to play Week 14

    Ngakoue (knee) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions. The veteran edge rusher was able to log a full practice Friday, but he's still listed as questionable for Sunday's affair after popping up on Chicago's injury report earlier in the week. If Ngakoue is unable to suit up in Week 14, Rasheem Green would likely see an uptick in snaps on the Bears' defensive line.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Leaves Week 12 contest with cramps

    Ngakoue exited Monday's game against Minnesota due to cramps and is questionable to return. Ngakoue departed in the second half of a close contest. Prior to his exit, he recorded one assisted tackle. If Ngakoue doesn't return, he's unlikely to miss additional time given the nature of the issue and the fact that Chicago has a Week 13 bye.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Third sack of season

    Ngakoue recorded three tackles and a sack in the Bears' 16-13 win over the Panthers on Thursday. Ngakoue snapped a four-game streak in which he failed to tally a sack. It's possible that with recently acquired Montez Sweat playing across from him, Ngakoue could see elevated sack totals down the stretch.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Ngakoue (back) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports. Ngakoue played a season-low 40 defensive snaps in Week 6 versus Minnesota, and that he's dealing with a back injury might help to explain why. He'll get two more chances to practice in full this week before Sunday's game versus Las Vegas.

  • Bears' Yannick Ngakoue: Collects first sack with Chicago

    Ngakoue recorded four tackles and a sack in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Packers. With the Packers attempting just 27 passes and most of those being for short yardage, there were few opportunities for the Bears to get sacks, and Ngakoue was the only Chicago player to record one. The veteran posted 9.5 and 10 sacks in each of the last two seasons, and as Chicago's lead pass rusher, he could flirt with similar numbers this season.

  • Colts' Yannick Ngakoue: Gets first sack as Colt

    Ngakoue had two tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over Kansas City. Ngakoue played on 43 of the defense's 64 snaps despite being limited in practice during the week due to a back injury. He had his first productive game for the Colts after providing little pressure in the pass rush the first two games. The Colts need him to have a bigger impact following his trade from the Raiders for cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.

  • Colts' Yannick Ngakoue: Two tackles in Indy debut

    Ngakoue started at right defensive end and had two tackles, a QB hit, two QB hurries and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's tie at Houston. Ngakoue played on 57 of the defense's 70 snaps. Ngakoue logged 10 sacks in 17 games last season, so he'll likely get to the quarterback soon. He'll be a key element for Indy's pass rush after coming over from the Raiders in a trade for cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.

  • Colts' Yannick Ngakoue: Headed to Colts

    The Colts acquired Ngakoue from the Raiders on Wednesday in exchange for cornerback Rock Ya-Sin, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. The move comes on the heels of the Raiders agreeing to terms with veteran edge rusher Chandler Jones. With Ngakoue -- who logged 10 sacks in 17 games last season -- deemed expendable in Las Vegas, he'll head to Indianapolis to bolster the Colts' pass-rushing effort. In Indianapolis, Ngakoue will be playing for his fifth team since 2019.

  • Raiders' Yannick Ngakoue: Injures hamstring during MNF

    Coach Jon Gruden said Ngakoue "pulled a hamstring" during the second half of Monday's contest against the Ravens and never returned, NFL.com reports. Gruden said that they don't know the severity of Ngakoue's injury. Given that the Raiders have a short week, the 26-year-old will likely be a game-time decision heading into Sunday's matchup with the Steelers. He recorded four tackles and one pass defensed before leaving Monday's contest.

  • Raiders' Yannick Ngakoue: Moving on to Las Vegas

    The Raiders and Ngakoue agreed to terms on a two-year, $26 million contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Ngakoue has racked up at least eight sacks in each of his five campaigns, bringing a much needed boost to a Las Vegas pass rush that produced just 21 in 2020. He'll join a group in which just one player (Maxx Crosby, seven) totaled more than three sacks last year.

  • Ravens' Yannick Ngakoue: Dealt to Baltimore

    The Ravens acquired Ngakoue from the Vikings on Thursday in exchange for a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The edge rusher will join his third team in three months after the Vikings acquired him from Jacksonville in late August, giving up a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round selection in the deal. With Minnesota sitting at 1-5 and facing an uphill battle to reach the postseason, the team has elected to move on from Ngakoue while getting most of its draft capital back in the deal. According to Schefter, Ngakoue will arrive in Baltimore in the next 24 hours to undergo COVID-19 testing, and if cleared, he should be ready to make his Ravens debut Nov. 1 against the Steelers coming off the team's Week 7 bye. Despite Minnesota's collective struggles, Ngakoue was productive as a pass rusher during his six games with the club, logging 13 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles.

  • Vikings' Yannick Ngakoue: Gets first sack for Vikings

    Ngakoue had three total tackles, a sack, two tackles for a loss and two QB hits in Sunday's loss to the Colts. After playing just 44 of 78 snaps on defense last week without a sack in his Minnesota debut, Ngakoue played 54 for the defense's 73 snaps and was much more disruptive in the pass rush. His improvement was about the only positive for a defense that struggled for a second consecutive game.

  • Vikings' Yannick Ngakoue: Inks new contract with Vikings

    Ngakoue signed a one-year, $12 million contract with the Vikings on Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports. The Vikings acquired Ngakoue from Jacksonville on Sunday in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick and a conditional 2022 fifth-round pick. The 25-year-old is taking nearly a $6 million pay cut in Minnesota this season, as he could have played under the $17.8 million franchise tag had he made up with the Jaguars. That said, the Vikings agreed to negotiate a long-term deal with Ngakoue beginning in 2021, so the star defensive end should still be in line to receive his desired payday eventually.

  • Vikings' Yannick Ngakoue: Headed to Minnesota

    The Vikings acquired Ngakoue from the Jaguars on Sunday in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick and a conditional 2022 fifth-round pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Ngakoue's move to Minnesota ends his prolonged dispute with the Jaguars, whom he told back in the spring that he had no intention of signing a long-term deal. Jacksonville instead placed a $17.8 million franchise tag on Ngakoue, who hadn't signed the tender nor reported to training camp. According to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com, the 25-year-old will sign a restructured one-year deal worth around $12 to 13 million, which would then allow Minnesota to begin negotiations on a long-term deal with the defensive end beginning in 2021. At least for this season, the addition of Ngakoue bolsters a Minnesota defensive line that also includes pass-rushing ace Danielle Hunter, who had been missing practice time of late. Ngakoue is coming off a 2019 season in which he logged 41 tackles and eight sacks. He's also forced 14 fumbles across the past four years, good for fourth most in the NFL during that span.
