  • Vikings' Dalvin Tomlinson: Set to hit free agency

    Tomlinson tallied 42 tackles (20 solo), including 2.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery while playing 13 regular-season games in 2022.

    Tomlinson was limited to a career-low 523 defensive snaps due to his four-week hiatus with a calf injury midway through the season. Nevertheless, the 325-pounder still compiled over 40 tackles and two sacks for the fifth time in his six-year career. Tomlinson is now set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and, with Minnesota currently $24.5 million over the cap heading into the offseason, he could be set to play elsewhere during his age-29 season in 2023.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Tomlinson: Season-high tackles

    Tomlinson recorded nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

    Tomlinson's nine stops included one for a loss, which was his first TFL on the season. He also recorded a hit on the quarterback, which was his sixth on the year. The 28-year-old continues to have a solid season, which will likely see him post his highest total tackles since 2018 (59), while his 1.5 sacks puts him within reach of his career high 3.5. He'll work to keep adding to those numbers Saturday against the Colts.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Tomlinson: Full go Wednesday

    Tomlinson (calf) was listed as a full participant on the Vikings' injury report Wednesday.

    Tomlinson suffered a calf injury during Minnesota's Week 8 win over the Cardinals, and he was deemed a limited participant on each of the team's practice reports Week 12. However, the 325-pound defensive lineman was still ruled inactive for the fourth game in a row ahead of Thursday's win over New England. Tomlinson recorded 20 tackles and 1.5 sacks while playing all but 26 of his 310 snaps on defense over the first seven games of the season, and he now appears set to reprise a starting role against the Jets on Sunday.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Tomlinson: Missing fourth straight game

    Tomlinson (calf) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Since picking up a calf issue back in Week 8, Tomlinson didn't practice before being designated inactive for each of the Vikings' previous three contests. While the team didn't hold sessions this week, he was listed as limited on all three injury reports, leading to a questionable designation for Week 12. Ultimately, Minnesota will take a cautious approach with Tomlinson and keep him in street clothes Thursday with an eye toward returning to action Sunday, Dec. 4 against the Jets, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.
