  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Tallies second sack

    Smith had four solo tackles and one sack during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Packers.

    Smith notched his lowest tackle total of the season versus Green Bay, but he nonetheless rewarded fantasy managers with his second sack of the year. The veteran safety missed Weeks 9 and 10 due to COVID-19 protocols, but in games he's suited up for, he hasn't missed a single defensive snap.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Activated off COVID-19 list

    The Vikings activated Smith off the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    As expected, Smith has been cleared to return to the team's facility Wednesday. The Notre Dame product has missed the last two contests due to COVID-19 protocols, but it appears he will be available against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Closing in on return

    Smith (illness) is close to returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list and is expected to be back with the team Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Assuming Smith is cleared to return to the team's facility Wednesday, he should have enough time to prepare and eventually take the field for Sunday's Week 11 matchup against Green Bay. The Notre Dame product has missed the last two contests while on the COVID-19 list.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Will miss another game

    Smith, who is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, head coach Mike Zimmer told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Smith missed Sunday's game at Baltmore after being placed on the COVID-19 list. Unvaccinated players who test positive must be out a minimum of 10 days, which will cause him to miss two games. Camryn Bynum started at safety in place of Smith and had 12 tackles and an interception.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Goes on COVID-19 list

    The Vikings placed Smith on the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Courtney Cronin of reports.

    Smith becomes the third Vikings player in the last four days to land on the list. The Vikings elevated Myles Dorn from the practice squad as a replacement on the roster for Smith, whose absence could hurt as they look to slow down a high-powered Ravens ground attack. Minnesota is already down two of its other top defenders in cornerback Patrick Peterson (hamstring) and top pass rusher Danielle Hunter (pectoral), who both reside on injured reserve.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Likely tests positive, may sit twice

    Smith's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday was believed to be the result of a positive test, based on the timing of the transaction and the fact that he was scheduled to take a retest, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The Vikings announced Smith would be sidelined for Sunday's game in Baltimore just under two hours before kickoff. He became the third Vikings player to enter the COVID-19 protocol in the past four days, and though there could be a possibility that he was a close contact of an infected person, word that he'll require a retest points to him having tested positive already. Unless a subsequent retest indicates that the original result was a false positive, Smith is expected to remain away from the team for at least 10 days, given that he's been following the stricter protocols for unvaccinated players this season. With that in mind, the veteran safety is likely to remain out for the Vikings' Week 10 game against the Chargers on Nov. 14, in addition to Sunday's tilt with the Ravens.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Records sack in season opener

    Smith had six total tackles, a sack, a tackle for a loss and a QB hit in Sunday's overtime loss at Cincinnati.

    Fresh off signing a four-year, $64 million extension, Smith got off to a strong start in 2021 while playing all 69 of the defense's snaps. It was also encouraging to see him involved in the pass rush, as he had just half a sack last season.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Signs four-year extension

    The Vikings signed Smith to a four-year, $64 million extension Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The safety has been a key cog in Mike Zimmer's defense for years and will now reap the benefits. The deal will keep Smith attached to the Vikings for the next five years and will increase his 2021 salary to $22.5 million before it levels off to $15.3 million over the next three seasons. During the 2020 campaign, the 32-year-old posted 89 tackles and tied his career-high with five interceptions. This year, Harrison will lead a revamped secondary as Minnesota added veterans Bashaud Breeland, Xavier Woods and Patrick Peterson this offseason.
