Vikings' Harrison Smith: Won't be suspended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith isn't expected to be suspended for lowering his helmet on a hit against tight end Jordan Akins in Sunday's win over the Texans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Smith was ejected for his actions in the first half, and the league has decided that's enough punishment for the safety. The Vikings' pass defense is shaky enough and clearly struggled with Smith out of the picture, so having him back against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in Week 5 is encouraging news.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Ejected Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Reaches another Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith, who tallied 19 tackles over two playoff games, finished with 85 tackles, 11 pass breakups, three interceptions and a sack over 15 regular-season games.

Smith forced three fumbles and recovered another two, as his versatility earned him a fifth straight trip to the Pro Bowl. He'll turn 31 years old in February, and Smith has two years remaining on his contract, averaging a $10.5 million cap hit. He's a lock to be the Week 1 starter at strong safety again in 2020.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Forces fumble in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Upgrades to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Smith was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now appears to have fully shed the hamstring injury he suffered Week 11. The veteran safety is set for his usual starting role during Sunday's divisional tilt against the Lions.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Bothered by hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Posts 10 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded 10 tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed across 75 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Seahawks.

Smith was dealing with a hamstring injury during practice last week but still managed to play in 100 percent of the defensive snaps Monday. He now has 71 tackles on the season, good enough for second overall on the team.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) is officially active for Monday's road clash against Seattle.

Smith logged a full practice session Saturday, so this news isn't a surprise. The safety is expected to play a large role in slowing down a potent Seahawks passing attack led by Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Gets questionable status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

November 28, 2019 04:12 PM
Vikings' Harrison Smith: Estimated as limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Explosive in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tallied eight tackles (six solo), a sack, a pass breakup and a forced fumble in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Chiefs.

The veteran safety sacked Matt Moore and caused a fumble, but Moore recovered before a Viking could jump on it. Smith led Minnesota in stops during this contest, and he's second only to Eric Kendricks (73) on the team in that category with 53. His average of 5.9 tackles per game is respectable for IDP purposes.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Secures first interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded four tackles (three solo) and an interception across 51 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

Smith logged his first interception of the year that he returned 13 yards and which ultimately led to a Vikings touchdown drive. The veteran continues to play the vast majority of defensive snaps every contest -- a trend that likely will continue Sunday in Chicago against the Bears.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Active in coverage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith made nine tackles (eight solo) and two pass breakups in Sunday's 28-12 win over the Falcons.

Smith is accustomed to being a strong tackler, but he only had six pass breakups in 2018 -- down from 12 in 2017. He appears back on pace to match 2017, and he'll look to carry this performance into a Week 2 matchup versus the Packers.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Avoids Week 1 injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: DNP against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith did not play in Saturday's 20-9 preseason win over the Cardinals due to an infected laceration, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer explained that Smith had been dealing with an infected cut, but the decision to keep him sidelined Saturday was simply precautionary as the starting safety would have played if more were on the line. There's no reason for Minnesota to risk Smith's health in the preseason, so we may not see him in game action again until Week 1 against the Falcons on Sep. 8.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Finishes another strong season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith ended the 2018 season with 84 tackles (67 solo), three sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble in 16 games.

The numbers are fairly consistent to Smith's output over the last couple years as he earned All-Pro honors for the second straight season, this time as a second-team selection.The 29-year-old is signed with the Vikings through 2021 and should remain one of the top safeties in the league next season.

Vikings' Harrison Smith: Grabs another interception in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
