  • Steelers' Miles Killebrew: Staying in Pittsburgh

    The Steelers re-signed Killebrew to a two-year deal Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Killebrew will stay in Pittsburgh for the next two campaigns after first joining the team in 2021. While the 30-year-old can contribute as a reserve defender, most of his value comes from his work on special teams, which earned Killebrew his first Pro Bowl appearance a season ago.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Unavailable against Falcons

    Killebrew (personal) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Falcons, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Killebrew has operated exclusively on special teams this season, so his absence won't shake up the defensive dynamic. His next chance to suit up will be Week 8 against the Colts.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Special-teams mainstay in 2018

    Killebrew tallied five tackles in 16 games during the 2018 season. Killebrew did nothing to separate himself in the offseason and ultimately saw the field for just one defensive snap in 2018. His physical tools are undeniable, but he hasn't found a way to get on the field despite being experimented with at both safety and linebacker. His roster spot is probably safe for the time being given his insignificant cap hit, but Killebrew has a lot of work to do in order to resurface on the IDP radar.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Dabbling at linebacker

    Killebrew worked exclusively as a linebacker in individual drills this week, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Killebrew has worked as the No. 5 safety in offseason workouts and doesn't have a clear defensive role in advance of the 2018 season. There's been no word on whether his position change is permanent, but the Lions nonetheless seem intent on finding ways to get the third-year player on the field this season. At 6-foot-2 and 222 pounds, Killebrew possesses favorable size for a dime- and nickel-package linebacker, and creative head coach Matt Patricia could experiment with a number of different alignments to take advantage of Killebrew's notorious physicality.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Nursing unspecified injury

    Killebrew (undisclosed) didn't play in Friday's preseason game against the Patriots, Kyle Meinke of MLive Media Group reports. The nature of Killebrew's injury wasn't specified, and it isn't clear how long he could be out. He's locked into a roster spot, so it wouldn't be a huge deal if he was forced to miss the preseason finale.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Practices fully Wednesday

    Killebrew (eye) was a full participant in practice Wednesday. Killebrew suffered an eye injury in Monday's loss to Dallas and was unable to return. His return to practice suggests the injury isn't very serious and shouldn't limit him in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Packers.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Suffers eye injury

    Killebrew injured his eye during Monday night's game against the Cowboys and is doubtful to return, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. The details of Killebrew's eye injury aren't clear. With roughly four minutes left in the game, it's extremely doubtful he makes a return.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Competing at strong safety

    Killebrew will compete with Rafael Bush and Tavon Wilson for the Lions' starting strong safety position, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. The Lions set at the free safety position with veteran Glover Quinn (ankle), but the strong safety job looks to be an open and intense competition. Initially there was concern about Killebrew's coverage ability, but he'll be given every chance to prove he can handle coverage at the NFL level, where he'll likely be asked to cover tight ends. Due to the veteran presence of Bush and Wilson, it would be surprising if Killebrew became the team's Week 1 starter, but it is likely that he gets some backup snaps to start the year.

  • Lions' Miles Killebrew: Lions take hard-hitting safety in fourth round

    The Lions selected Killebrew in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 111th overall. Killebrew earned a reputation as a big-tiime hitter during his time at Southern Utah. He can come up and help out in run support and his size (6-2, 217) will allow him to hold up at the next level. There are questions about his instincts and coverage skills, and if he can't adjust, he could have to transition to an outside linebacker/hybrid safety type of role. The fact that the Lions took Killebrew in the fourth round suggests that the likes of Don Carey or Isaiah Johnson could be on the hot seat as far as strong safeties on the roster.
