Lions' Darius Slay: Tallies INT versus Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay recorded two tackles (one solo), one defended pass and one interception during Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Bears.

Slay notched his second interception of the season during the Thanksgiving Day loss. He spent much of the contest shadowing Allen Robinson. The two-time Pro Bowler will look to make another strong impact against the Vikings in Week 14.

Lions' Darius Slay: No injury designation for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (neck) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Dallas.

After popping up on the injury report Wednesday, Slay put in a limited practice Thursday before upgrading to a full practice Friday. He will suit up against the Cowboys and possibly be tasked with shadowing Amari Cooper.

Lions' Darius Slay: Listed as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (neck) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Slay wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he now appears to be dealing with a neck injury. The severity of Slay's new issue remains undisclosed, though it's a positive sign that he wasn't held out of practice entirely. The 28-year-old seems to have a good shot at suiting up Week 11 against the Cowboys, barring any setbacks.

Lions' Darius Slay: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Slay played 70 of a possible 71 defensive snaps in Week 9's loss to the Raiders, and he made three tackles (two solo). The veteran corner doesn't appear to be feeling any lingering effects in his hamstring at the start of the practice week. Slay has been the Lions' lockdown corner this year, as quarterbacks have produced a measly 72.3 passer rating when targeting Slay's receivers. He may shadow Allen Robinson in Sunday's matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Darius Slay: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Slay will get back into the lineup after being injured Week 7 against the Vikings and sitting out the following contest. His presence in the secondary is a major boost for the Lions, as he can help lockdown opponents' top playmakers. In this case, Slay may shadow Tyrell Williams or Darren Waller.

Lions' Darius Slay: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkk reports.

Slay's availability should make things more difficult for Derek Carr, and perhaps Tyrell Williams. The 28-year-old is Detroit's best cover corner.

Lions' Darius Slay: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Slay managed to practice without limitations Friday, which bodes well for his chances of taking the field Week 9. He sat out Week 8's win over the Giants. If Slay were forced to miss any more time, however, Rashaan Melvin would slot into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Oakland.

Lions' Darius Slay: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Slay missed Week 8's win over the Giants and wasn't able to practice last Friday. His limited participation Wednesday is therefore a step in the right direction, but Slay can't be considered a lock to suit up Sunday against the Raiders. In the event that Slay were forced to miss any more time, Rashaan Melvin would be in line to draw another start.

Lions' Darius Slay: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Slay wasn't seen participating at Friday's practice so it's no real surprise to see him ruled out for Week 8. Rashaan Melvin and Justin Coleman should handle the bulk of the work at cornerback versus New York.

October 25, 2019 01:04 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Not practicing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay wasn't seen participating at Friday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Slay aggravated his hamstring injury during last Sunday's loss to the Vikings and has been unable to practice this week. The 28-year-old will receive an official injury designation later Friday, but he seems unlikely to be available for Week 8.

October 23, 2019 06:20 PM
Lions' Darius Slay: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Slay aggravated a lingering hamstring injury during Sunday's loss to the Vikings. He'll have two more opportunities to upgrade his participation in practice before Sunday's tilt against the Giants. If the star cornerback is forced to miss any time, expect Tavon Wilson to once again handle slot duties while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin draw the start outside.

October 21, 2019 09:40 AM
Lions' Darius Slay: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Slay aggravated his hamstring injury in the first half of the game, and the injury will force him to miss the remaining quarter and change. Now that he's officially out, Tavon Wilson seems likely to work in the slot, while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin handle outside duties at cornerback. Expect the team to comment on Slay's status following the game or in the coming days.

Lions' Darius Slay: Aggravates hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay exited Sunday's game against the Vikings with a hamstring injury.

Slay was questionable for Sunday's game due to a hamstring issue and he appears to have aggravated the injury during the first half. Tavon Wilson seems likely to work in the slot while Justin Coleman and Rashaan Melvin handle outside duties at cornerback while Slay is sidelined.

Lions' Darius Slay: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Vikings.

Slay was limited in practice all week, but both he and safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) will suit up for the contest, leaving the defensive secondary at full strength for a showdown with Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota passing attack.

Lions' Darius Slay: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday versus the Vikings, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Slay received the questionable tag after being limited in practice all week, but it looks like he'll be good to go for Week 7. The Lions can ill afford to be without their star cornerback when going up against WRs Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs on Sunday.

Lions' Darius Slay: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Vikings.

Slay was limited in practice all week due to a hamstring issue sustained Week 3. The star cornerback managed to suit up Monday versus the Packers, and he appears to have a good shot at playing through the injury once more Week 7.

Lions' Darius Slay: Limited showing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay was listed as a limited participant for Wednesday's practice.

Slay has been dealing with the hamstring injury since Week 3 but was able to suit up in Monday's game despite logging limited practice. It appears the All-Pro could be heading for a similar scenario heading into Week 7. If Slay can't suit up Sunday, Rashaan Melvin and Mike Ford would be the beneficiaries of seeing increased snaps.

Lions' Darius Slay: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is active for Monday's game against the Packers.

Slay was sidelined in Week 4 due to the injury, but he had an extra week off to recover during the Lions' bye. Although his status was originally deemed uncertain, he did appear to be trending in this direction. The All-Pro corner will return against a Packers' team missing their No. 1 pass-catcher in Davante Adams (toe). Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload.

Lions' Darius Slay: On track to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) seems to be on track to play in Monday's game against the Packers, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

The All-Pro corner has been limited in practice since straining his hamstring in Week 3. While Detroit officially listed him as questionable on Saturday's final injury report, it seems Slay -- plus safety Quandre Diggs (hamstring) -- is likely to be available to help the Lions try to contain Aaron Rodgers. Despite dealing with injuries in the secondary, Detroit has allowed the third-lowest completion (55.4) percentage and fifth-lowest passer rating (80.3) even with an inconsistent pass rush that has generated just nine sacks through four games.

Lions' Darius Slay: Status uncertain for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Packers.

Slay worked in a limited capacity during practice all week, so his status appears to be a true game-time call. Since Davante Adams (toe) is out, Slay will likely line up across from Marquez Valdes-Scantling if he can suit up. Otherwise, Rashaan Melvin and Jamal Agnew figure to both see upticks in usage.
