  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Sits out Wednesday's practice

    Elliott didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

    Elliott played all 55 defensive snaps and recorded six tackles in Week 13, but he's sidelined to start Week 14 prep due to an ankle issue. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but he'll have two more opportunities to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Tallies eight tackles

    Elliott recorded eight tackles in Thursday's 28-25 loss to the Bills.

    Elliott was on the field for a season-high 73 snaps and recorded eight tackles for the second consecutive game. He now has 73 total stops on the season, only seven away from his career-best mark. Across 10 games for the campaign, Elliott also has two passes defended, one interception and one fumble recovered.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Team's top tackler Sunday

    Elliott logged eight tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 31-18 win over the Giants.

    Elliott played all 76 of the Lions' defensive snaps Week 11 after being forced out with a concussion during last week's win over the Bears. The free safety also finished with a team high in tackles, and he now has 65 stops (52 solo), two passes defended and one interception over nine games in 2022. Elliott should easily log a new career high in tackles so long as he can remain healthy over the final seven weeks of the season.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Ready to roll Sunday

    Elliott (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Giants

    Elliott was knocked out of last Sunday's contest versus Chicago due to concussion symptoms, but he's since been able to clear protocols and practice in a limited capacity during each session this week, making him available for the Lions' Week 11 matchup. The 25-year-old is slated to operate in his usual role as one of the team's starting safeties this weekend.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Questionable for Week 11

    Elliott (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Giants, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Elliott was limited during each practice of Week 11 prep and will likely be a game-time decision Sunday. If he's unable to play against the Giants, C.J. Moore and JuJu Hughes would be likely candidates for increased snaps.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Elliott (concussion) was listed as a limited participant on the Lions' injury report Wednesday.

    Elliott entered concussion protocols after being forced out during the first half of Detroit's Week 10 win over the Bears. While he was able to log a limited session during the first practice of Week 11, he'll still have to clear the league's protocol before suiting up for Sunday's game against the Giants. Elliott has played a prominent role in the Lions' secondary over eight games this season, recording 57 tackles, two passes defended and an interception, and he'll have two more practices to increase his activity before Friday's final injury report.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Won't return Sunday

    Elliott (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bears.

    Elliott was knocked out of Sunday's contest versus Chicago during the first half, and he isn't anticipated to return due to concussion symptoms. With Ifeatu Melifonwu (ankle) already having been ruled inactive to begin the afternoon, C.J. Moore and JuJu Hughes are candidates to take on more safety snaps for the rest of the day.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Logs full practice Wednesday

    Elliott (finger) was a full participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game versus Green Bay.

    After being forced to sit out of Detroit's loss versus Miami in Week 8 with the injury, signs are pointing strongly towards Elliott's availability for Week 9 versus the Packers. He's logged at least nine tackles in each of the last three games during which he's played.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Out for Week 8

    Elliot (finger) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Elliot presumably picked up the injury during the team's Week 7 loss to the Cowboys and wasn't able to practice during Week 8 prep. In his absence, JuJu Hughes and C.J. Moore are candidates for increased roles in Detroit's secondary.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Sits out of practice

    Elliott (finger) did not practice Wednesday.

  • Lions' DeShon Elliott: Second-leading tackler Sunday

    Elliott recorded eight tackles during Sunday's 24-6 loss to the Cowboys.

    Elliott finished with the Lions' second-most tackles behind Jeff Okudah despite playing a season-low 48 defensive snaps against Dallas. The 25-year-old temporarily exited with a lower-body injury versus New England in Week 5, and he appeared to switch off free-safety reps with JuJu Hughes, who played 16 of Detroit's 63 defensive snaps in Week 7. Elliott is currently on pace to set a new career high in tackles, as he has tallied 49 stops over six games so far in 2022.
