Watch Now:

Hicks started at middle linebacker and had three tackles and a quarterback hurry in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

Hicks is a cornerstone of the defense, as he played on 66 of the defense's 68 snaps and was the only linebacker to remain on the field in all formations. He could get more sacks this season, as the Vikings appear likely to utilize more blitzes under new defensive coordinator Brian Flores.
