Lions' Darius Slay: Agrees to four-year contract extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay agreed to a four-year, $50.2 million contract extension with the Lions on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Slay's new deal with the Lions also includes $23 million fully guaranteed at signing, as he remains the team's top cornerback. The 25-year-old amassed 59 tackles, 13 passes defensed, and two interceptions in 16 games during the 2015 season, his third year in the league.

Lions' Darius Slay: Active for Week 6 tilt with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Darius Slay (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Slay was able to compete fully in Friday's practice, so he shouldn't be held to a limited snap count while working as the Detroit Lions ' top cornerback Sunday. Through five games, Slay has collected 21 tackles and an interception.

Lions CB Darius Slay is probable for Week 2
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions cornerback Darius Slay is probable for Sunday's game in Minnesota.

Although he gifted Slay a pick-six in Week 1, Chargers QB Philip Rivers mostly targeted Detroit's other defensive backs, which will likely be the blueprint for opposing signal-callers this season. However, Slay could get some extra opportunities for tackles and interceptions if he shadows his opponent's top receiver -- something the Lions might consider after Keenan Allen repeatedly beat 35-year-old Rashean Mathis last week.

Lions CB Darius Slay leaves practice early Wednesday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lions cornerback Darius Slay (ankle) participated in practice Wednesday, but he was forced to leave the field early, Kyle Meinke of the MLive.com reports.

It's not great news for the Lions' top corner, who was trying to work through an ankle injury he suffered during Sunday's game against the Chargers. It's still early in the week, making Slay's availability for Sunday's contest against the Vikings still very much up in the air.

Lions provide no injury updates on Stafford, Pettigrew and Slay
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lions coach Jim Caldwell offered no updates Monday on the statuses of quarterback Matthew Stafford, tight end Brandon Pettigrew and cornerback Darius Slay, who all sustained injuries during Sunday's season opener at San Diego.

"You'll see on the injury report on Wednesday," Caldwell told reporters, per The Detroit News.

Stafford got dinged up on a blind-side blitz midway through the third quarter Sunday, per MLive.com. He finished the game with a sleeve on his right (throwing) arm and showed up for his postgame press conference with scraping on his left arm. The Lions backup quarterback is Dan Orlovsky.

"You saw him get hit, obviously," Caldwell said after Sunday's game. "Once he got hit, it was just a way of keeping him going."

Pettigrew (undisclosed) was injured on the extra-point try on Detroit's final touchdown, while Slay did not finish the game due to an ankle injury suffered in the fourth quarter. Both players will undergo further medical testing.
