    Lions' Jayron Kearse: Heads to Detroit

    Jayron Kearse (toe) is signing with the Detroit Lions on a one-year, $2.75 million contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.The 2016 seventh-round pick primarily served as a backup safety and slot corner during his four seasons in Minnesota, playing more snaps on special teams than on defense in every season until 2019. The Lions likely envision Kearse in a similar role, as Tracy Walker and Duron Harmon are expected to start at safety. Kearse should have plenty of time to recover from the knee and toe injuries that held him out of Minnesota's playoff loss to the 49ers.

    Vikings' Jayron Kearse: Reserve role in 2019

    Jayron Kearse (toe) finished the regular season with 28 tackles, six pass breakups and an interception over 15 appearances.Kearse sat out of the Minnesota Vikings' divisional-round loss to the 49ers due to a toe injury, but he was healthy for the team's wild-card win in New Orleans despite not logging a defensive snap. His toe injury should be healed by time he hits free agency in March. Fellow Vikings safeties Anthony Harris and Andrew Sendejo are also pending unrestricted free agents, so Kearse may wait until those dominoes fall before making a decision whether to return to Minnesota or try his luck elsewhere.

    Jayron Kearse (toe) has been downgraded to out for Saturday NFC divisional-round game at San Francisco.Kearse originally received the doubtful tag, so it's not a major surprise to see him downgraded to out. Andrew Sendejo will continue to work as the Minnesota Vikings' No. 3 safety.

    Vikings' Jayron Kearse: Draws doubtful tag

    Jayron Kearse (knee/toe) is officially listed as doubtful for Saturday's NFC divisional-round contest against the 49ers, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.Kearse is trending in the wrong direction for Saturday's playoff tilt in San Francisco. He didn't handle a single snap on defense during Minnesota's wild-card win over New Orleans, so his availability (or lack thereof) will only impact the Minnesota Vikings' depth at safety.

    Vikings' Jayron Kearse: No practice Wednesday

    Jayron Kearse (knee/toe) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.Kearse watched a second straight practice from the sidelines, and he'll need to work in some capacity Thursday to have a shot at suiting up in Saturday's divisional-round game versus the 49ers. Whether Kearse can play Saturday mainly affects the team's safety depth, as he didn't play a defensive snap in the wild-card win versus the Saints.

    Vikings' Jayron Kearse: Still nursing injury

    Jayron Kearse (knee/toe) was listed as a non-participant for Tuesday's walkthrough practice.Kearse has been nursing the toe injury since Week 15 of the regular season, but luckily for him, Tuesday's practice report was only an estimation. The 25-year-old played through the injury the past three weeks, so expect his practice availability throughout the week shed light on his chances to play Saturday. If Kearse sits out, however, the team would be down to just three healthy safeties.

    Jayron Kearse (toe) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Bears.Kearse was considered questionable despite working as a full practice participant all week, so it's not a real surprise he's okay to suit up Sunday. The 25-year-old could see increased defensive reps versus Chicago since Minnesota is locked into its playoff position and is expected to rest some key players.
