  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Getting up to speed

    Jacobs (knee) was on the field for an offseason workout May 10, according to the Lions' official site.

    Jacobs is bouncing back from a torn ACL he suffered last December. He'll be over seven months removed from surgery by the time training camp kicks off this summer, but it remains a strong possibility that he could miss games to start to the 2022 season. When healthy, Jacobs will compete for a rotational role at cornerback under Amani Oruwariye, Mike Hughes, Jeff Okudah (Achilles), and AJ Parker.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Diagnosed with ACL injury

    Jacobs announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he suffered an ACL injury to his knee in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

    The Lions haven't elaborated on the extent of Jacobs' knee issue, but the fact that he termed his injury as "a minor setback for a major comeback" suggests he suffered a season-ending ACL tear. If that's the case, Jacobs will likely be sent in for surgery in the coming days. The undrafted rookie had emerged as a key piece in the Detroit secondary, logging 34 tackles, seven pass breakups and a forced fumble across 13 games.
