  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Ends with career-high 114 tackles

    Smith tallied 114 tackles (83 solo), seven pass deflections, three sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 15 appearances during the 2021 campaign. Smith missed two games while on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he played every defensive snap in the 15 games for which he was active. He topped 100 tackles for the first time in his career and tied his career high with three sacks, a mark he's reached three times. The soon-to-be 33-year-old signed a four-year extension before the 2021 season, so he's expected to have a similar role next year.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Practices fully Thursday

    Smith (foot/shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice. Smith didn't practice Wednesday due to the injuries, but his absence was presumably a precautionary measure since he had no limitations Thursday. Barring a setback, the 32-year-old will be good to go for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Battling foot, shoulder injuries

    Smith (foot/shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday. Smith previously hadn't been dealing with an injury but is suddenly battling two. The starting safety's status will be worth monitoring throughout the week, as Smith sitting out would turn Sunday's game into an even more favorable matchup for Aaron Rodgers and the prolific Packers passing attack.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Ties career high with third sack

    Smith had five tackles (four solo), a sack, a tackle for loss and a pass defensed in Thursday's 36-28 win over Pittsburgh. Smith's well-rounded stat line included his third sack of the season, and the veteran safety has now tied his career high in that category, having previously totaled three sacks in 2014 and 2018. He's also up to 83 tackles, surpassing 80 for the fourth consecutive campaign.

  • 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: 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: Another nine-stop day

    Smith notched nine tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's win over the Panthers. Smith has back-to-back games with nine stops under his belt, bringing him to 49 tackles (37 solo) on the season. Since the season-opener, Smith hasn't logged a single contest with less than eight total tackles.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Ejected Week 4

    Smith was ejected from Sunday's game at Houston for lowering his helmet on a hit on Jordan Akins, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Akins was forced to leave the game and has since been ruled out with a concussion. Smith had three tackles before getting tossed and figures to receive a fine later this week for the play.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Four tackles Sunday

    Smith had four total tackles in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. With Minnesota's young cornerbacks struggling against Aaron Rodgers, Smith wasn't utilized in the pass rush (just one QB hurry, according to Pro Football Focus). Smith fared well in pass coverage despite the defense giving up 43 points. The team's cornerback play is likely going to need to improve for Smith to be utilized as a blitzer or for him to grab interceptions for stats that will have a fantasy impact.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Forces fumble in loss

    Smith logged five tackles (four solo) and a forced fumble in Monday night's 23-10 loss to Green Bay. Smith has been racking up the big plays over the last four weeks with two interceptions, four pass breakups, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble in that time. He needs 13 more tackles in Week 17 against the Bears to tie his career high of 98, but he has yet to log more than 10 stops in a game this season.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Bothered by hamstring

    Smith (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Smith has dealt with this injury since Week 11 but played every snap of this past Monday's loss to the Seahawks, posting a season-high 10 tackles. There's no reason to think he won't be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Lions as long as he doesn't suffer a setback.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Gets questionable status

    Smith (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Seahawks. Smith was a full participant in practice Saturday, so it seems likely the veteran safety will be good to go for Monday's prime-time contest after leaving Week 12 early with a hamstring injury.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Estimated as limited in practice

    Harrison Smith (hamstring) was labeled limited in practice Thursday. The Vikings didn't practice Thursday, so Smith's designation is merely an estimation. Since Minnesota plays Monday night in Week 13, Smith has an extra day to ramp up his practice activities. Reports over the weekend will bear monitoring.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Injures hamstring

    Smith was forced out of Sunday's game against the Broncos with a hamstring injury. Smith's not expected to return to this contest, and Jayron Kearse will likely fill in next to Andrew Sendejo. He's fortunate to have an upcoming bye week, and Smith will look to get healthy for a matchup against the Seahawks on Dec. 2.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Avoids Week 1 injury report

    Smith (infection) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report. Held out of the Vikings' third preseason contest due to an infected laceration, Smith displayed his health by practicing in full capacity in the first practice in advance of the season opener. Over the course of his career, he's showed his worth as an IDP with 91.5 tackles, 3.2 interceptions and 1.9 sacks per 16 games played.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Grabs another interception in Week 7

    Smith recorded three tackles (three solo), one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints. Smith posted his third interception of the season. The Vikings' defense is has improved in recent weeks, but Smith has yet to put up strong numbers during the 2018 season. He'll face off against the Matthew Stafford-led Lions air attack in Week 9.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Snags interception in win

    Smith recorded four tackles (three solo) and two passes defensed, including an interception, in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Jets. Smith's interception gives him two on the season. He's one of the better safeties in the NFL, but he hasn't put up prolific numbers so far in 2018. He'll aim to maintain his momentum and slow down the Drew Brees-led Saints offense in Week 8.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Snags five picks in All-Pro season

    Smith recorded 78 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 12 pass breakups and five interceptions over 16 games in 2017. Smith captained a Vikings defense that allowed the fewest yards in the league while limiting opponents to a 25.2 percent conversion rate on third downs -- the lowest rate ever recorded since the stat was introduced in 1991, according to the Vikings' official site. Not only did he earn first-team All-Pro honors for his performance, Smith also finished as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded safety where his 36.0 overall grade was nearly twice as high as the second-ranked Adrian Amos (18.3). He remains under contract with Minnesota in 2018 and should be considered among the first handful of safeties to be considered in fantasy drafts.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Gets first interception of season

    Smith had eight total tackles and an interception in Sunday's 34-17 win over Tampa Bay. Smith is producing his usual tackle totals (6.3 per game), continues to rate high in pass coverage and made his first big play of the season. He should produce several more interceptions and sacks if he stays healthy.
