  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Clear of injury report

    Lynch (hip) isn't listed on Thursday's injury report.

    Lynch missed last week's win over Pittsburgh with the hip injury but is ready to go for Week 15. The 24-year-old has 32 tackles (21 solo), two sacks and one forced fumble in 12 games this season.

  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Out against Steelers

    Lynch (hip) is inactive for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh.

    Lynch seemingly got banged up during Sunday's loss to Detroit, as he played 100 percent of defensive snaps but landed on the injury report Monday. He logged limited practices both Tuesday and Wednesday, but that won't be enough for him to suit up. With Anthony Barr (knee) back in action, the Vikings should still be relatively strong at outside linebacker.

  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Dealing with hip injury

    Lynch (hip) did not practice Monday, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.

    Lynch played 100 percent of defensive snaps during Sunday's divisional loss to the Lions, racking up nine tackles (six solo) and two sacks, along with a forced fumble and one fumble recovery. If Anthony Barr (knee/hamstring) and Eric Kendricks (biceps) aren't able to return in time for Thursday's matchup against the Steelers, Lynch, if healthy, will once again stand to handle an every-down gig.

  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Increased role Sunday

    Lynch started at weak-side linebacker and had six total tackles in Sunday's win at the Chargers.

    Lynch got the start with Anthony Barr out. However, he played just 18 snaps on defense, as he came off the field in passing situations with Nick Vigil and Eric Kendricks staying in dime and nickel packages.

  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Two tackles Sunday

    Lynch had two total tackles in Sunday's overtime loss to the Bengals.

    Lynch played 16 snaps on defense and allowed a catch on the only throw targeted at him. Lynch will likely get most of his playing time on special teams as a reserve linebacker as he didn't see much action from scrimmage even with Anthony Barr out.

  • Vikings' Blake Lynch: Big impact in first career start

    Lynch made 10 tackles (seven solo) in Friday's 52-33 loss to the Saints.

    Lynch made his first career start on Christmas Day because of injuries to Eric Kendricks (calf), Troy Dye (concussion) and Todd Davis (ribs). He put up impressive fantasy numbers for any managers that had the foresight to start the undrafted rookie out of Baylor, although he's partly accountable for Alvin Kamara's record-setting, six-touchdown performance. With the Vikings out of the playoff hunt, he could make another start in the season finale against the Lions.
