Eagles' Darius Slay: Confirmed active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Slay was able to clear the concussion protocol Friday and finished the week as a full practice participant, but the Eagles still chose to list him as questionable for the Week 6 game as a precaution. With Slay experiencing no setbacks since Friday, he'll step back into his normal starting role. Expect Slay to shadow Baltimore's No. 1 receiver, Marquise Brown, for most of the afternoon.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (concussion), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, is expected to play, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Slay cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Friday, but that wasn't enough for him to avoid an injury designation heading into the weekend. The cornerback's limited practice time this week may have contributed to him being listed as questionable, but with no concussion symptoms having resurfaced since he cleared the protocol, Slay shouldn't face any restrictions Sunday. Expect him to shadow Baltimore's top wideout, Marquise Brown, for most of the day.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Slay managed to gain medical clearance Friday, but he'll need to stay symptom-free leading up to Sunday's contest to avoid re-entering the concussion protocol. A final word on the veteran cornerback's status may not come until the Eagles' inactives list is released ahead of Sunday's 1:00 P.M. ET kickoff.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay cleared the concussion protocol Friday and is on track to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday, EJ Smith of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Slay looks on track to retake the field after missing just one game, though Smith notes that he'll need to remain symptom-free as Sunday's game approaches in order to remain out of the concussion protocol. The starting cornerback's presence would provide a notable boost for Philadelphia's secondary against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Upgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (concussion) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

After missing practice completely Wednesday, this is a good sign for Slay, as he suffered a concussion in last week's loss to Pittsburgh. Although Slay appears to be trending in the right direction, he'll still have to gain clearance from an independent neurologist to join his teammates for Sunday's game against the Ravens. If Slay is forced to sit, it's likely that Cre'von LeBlanc or Nickell Robey-Coleman would assume his starting role at cornerback.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Still dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay (concussion) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice.

Slay suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers, and, as evidenced by this news, he's yet to be cleared out of concussion protocol. It's likely the veteran will have to log at least limited practice time to have a shot at playing Sunday against the Ravens, so he has two more practices to gain clearance. If Slay is forced to miss game action, it's likely that Cre'von LeBlanc or Nickell Robey-Coleman would assume a starting role at corner back.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Dealing with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay is in concussion protocol following Sunday's loss to the Steelers, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Slay left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter and didn't return, and the reason for his departure has now been clarified. He'll look to progress through the league's protocol ahead of a Week 6 matchup against the Ravens, and his Wednesday practice capacity will reveal more about his chances of playing.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Exits in fourth quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay suffered an undisclosed injury during the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Steelers and didn't return, Marcus Hayes of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Coach Doug Pederson didn't have an update on Slay's status following the game, so it's possible he was held out as a precaution. We should have a better idea of what he's dealing with when the Eagles resume practicing Wednesday.

Eagles' Darius Slay: Dealt to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles acquired Slay from the Lions on Thursday in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Slay will sign a three-year, $50 million contract extension with Philadelphia that contains $30 million guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Detroit's signing of Desmond Trufant a day earlier likely expedited the trade of Slay, who was a prime candidate to get moved during the offseason. He'll immediately step in as the Eagles' No. 1 cornerback after earning Pro Bowl nods in each of the past three seasons. Slay tied for the NFL lead with eight interceptions in 2017 and has a league-best 82 pass breakups over the past five seasons. His contract extension will deservedly make him one of the NFL's highest-paid defensive backs.

Lions' Darius Slay: Likely on move to Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles are working to acquire Slay from the Lions and then sign him to a three-year extension, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Slay has proven to be one of the league's best coverage cornerbacks the past three years, earning Pro Bowl nods in each of those season. During the 2019 campaign, he registered 46 tackles, 13 pass breakups and two interceptions over 14 games. The Lions haven't been able to agree to a long-term deal with the 29-year-old cornerback, but it appears the Eagles are willing to commit to him long term in an attempt to shore up their secondary. If this deal comes to fruition, Slay would be locked down through the 2023 campaign.

Lions' Darius Slay: Offseason trade possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay and the Lions continue to discuss a long-term contract, but it's possible the cornerback could enter the trade market if no deal is reached in the coming weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports

Slay is entering the final year of a contract that has a $13.4 million cap hit in 2020, and any extension with the former All-Pro defender would likely cost upward of $16 to $20 million per year. While it may sound crazy for the talent-deficient Lions to part with one of their best players, Detroit may need help at too many positions to devote that kind of capital to an aging cornerback, especially if it could net a first-round pick in exchange for the 29-year-old. After all, Jacksonville just flipped another (albeit younger) All-Pro corner in Jalen Ramsey to a contender for two first-round picks and change.

Lions' Darius Slay: Two picks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slay registered 46 tackles, 13 pass breakups, two interceptions and one fumble recovery over 14 games in 2019.

Among the top five highest-paid corners this season, Slay didn't have the most effective season of his career in 2019, but he was far from a liability in coverage like fellow aging NFC North Star Xavier Rhodes. In fact, the reality of Slay's 13 PBUs being tied with his lowest total in six years goes to show how relatively consistent Slay has been for Detroit in recent years. Now entering the final year of his current deal, Slay is a strong candidate to receive an extension this offseason and his continued presence should make life easier for all Lions players in 2020.

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.

November 14, 2019 04:24 PM
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.

October 30, 2019 06:00 PM
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.
