  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Totals seven stops on Thanksgiving

    Jacobs recorded seven tackles (all solo), including one for loss, in Thursday's Week 12 loss to Green Bay.

    Jacobs finished second on Detroit in tackles, one behind rookie Brian Branch. Jacobs' seven stops were his most since he tallied seven against the Falcons in Week 3. He's been a full-time starter throughout the campaign and has already set career-high marks with 47 tackles (43 solo) and three interceptions through 10 games.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Manages full practice Thursday

    Jacobs (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

    After sitting out in Week 7 at Baltimore, Jacobs appears to be on track to suit up Monday versus Las Vegas. He should immediately step back in as one of Detroit's top cover corners opposite Cameron Sutton.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Inactive for Week 7

    Jacobs (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

    Jacobs will miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury. He was a limited participant at each practice during Week 7 prep, so there's a good chance he's facing just a one-game absence. In his stead, Brian Branch, Chase Lucas and Khalil Dorsey are candidates for increased snaps opposite Cameron Sutton.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Added to injury report

    Jacobs is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens due to a knee injury.

    It is unclear when Jacobs picked up the knee issue, but his status for Week 7 is up in the air as a result. If he does not get the green light, Chase Lucas and Brian Branch would be prime candidates to fill in opposite Cameron Sutton at corner. Still, more clarity on Jacobs' status is unlikely to come until closer to kickoff.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Records interception in win

    Jacobs finished Sunday's 42-24 win against the Panthers with four tackles (four solo), a pass deflection and an interception.

    Jacobs was one two Detroit defenders to record an interception during Sunday's win and has now compiled three over the past two games. The 26-year-old is on pace for the best season of his career, as he's already set a new personal best for interceptions and is on track to do so for tackles as well.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Picks off Love twice Thursday

    Jacobs had five solo tackles and four passes defensed, including two interceptions, in Thursday's 34-20 win over Green Bay.

    Jacobs came into Thursday's game with one career interception in 28 NFL games, but he managed to pick off Jordan Love twice. The cornerback returned the first interception 20 yards to Green Bay's seven-yard line in the second quarter, and Detroit punched in a touchdown two plays later to take a commanding 24-3 lead. After his first interception led to points, the second prevented the Packers from scoring, as Jacobs notched the interception on Detroit's four-yard line and returned it 14 yards in the fourth quarter.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Totals seven tackles

    Jacobs recorded seven solo tackles during Sunday's 20-6 win over Atlanta.

    Again logging almost every defensive snap while starting opposite Cameron Sutton, Jacobs bounced back from a forgettable (but productive) Week 2 performance and now ranks sixth among cornerbacks in tackles through three games. While Jacobs could see a reduction in snaps once Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is up to speed, Jacobs should receive all of the playing time he can handle in the meantime.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Competing for starting role

    Jacobs appears to be competing with Emmanuel Moseley (knee) for the starting boundary cornerback job opposite Cameron Sutton, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Playing his way into a full-time role over the past two years, Jacobs has made a big name for himself in Detroit. The undrafted player has significantly outperformed 2020 third overall pick Jeff Okudah, who's now in Atlanta. While Sutton's three-year, $33 million contract probably locks him into the No. 1 spot on the depth chart, Jacobs seems to have a good shot at stopping Moseley from stealing his starting job, especially with his counterpart coming off a torn ACL.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Successful second season

    Jacobs recorded 42 tackles, one sack, eight pass breakups and one interception over 12 games in 2022.

    Jacobs missed the first five games of the year while working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in 2021, but he finished the season as arguably Detroit's most reliable cornerback. Not only was Jeff Okudah (elbow) benched down the stretch after an impressive first half of the season, Amani Oruwariye and Mike Hughes -- who will be free agents at the end of the league year -- were benched at different points as well. Jacobs ultimately became a mainstay in the defensive lineup by year's end, and the Alabama product seems primed to return to Detroit in 2023 as a near every-down player for new defensive backs coach Dre Bly.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Logs season-high seven stops

    Jacobs recorded seven tackles (five solo), one sack and one pass defensed during Sunday's 34-23 win over the Vikings.

    Jacobs tied his previous career high with seven stops in Sunday's win over Minnesota, while he also played all but two defensive snaps for Detroit in the contest. With fellow cornerback Will Harris questionable for this weekend due to a hip issue, Jacobs could once again play a prominent role in the Lions' secondary Sunday versus the Jets.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Rejoins active roster

    Jacobs (knee) was activated from the PUP list Saturday.

    Jacobs started the season on the PUP list after suffering a torn ACL in December. He returned to practice Oct. 5, and will now finally get a chance to make his return Sunday against the Cowboys.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Returns to practice Wednesday

    Jacobs (knee) was designated to return from the PUP list and practiced Wednesday.

    Jacobs started the campaign on the PUP list while he continued to rehab from a torn ACL, but he's returned to practice at the earliest possible time, which is encouraging for his availability moving forward. The second-year defensive back will have 21 days to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he'll revert to the PUP list for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Staying on PUP list

    Jacobs (knee) was moved to the regular-season PUP list Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Head coach Dan Campbell provided hope last week that Jacobs would avoid this given the progress Jacobs has made in his recovery from a torn ACL, but it turns out that will not be the case despite Jacobs being setback-free. Jacobs will thus miss at least the first four games of the regular season while Detroit moves forward with Will Harris and Chase Lucas as its top depth at cornerback behind presumed starters Amani Oruwariye, Jeff Okudah and Mike Hughes.
