Slay (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation going into Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.
Slay missed last week's game against Chicago after playing through the injury in Week 9. The 27-year-old practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday and Thursday but managed to finish the week with a full practice. Slay will more than likely resume his starting role as the Lions' top cornerback.
Slay (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest at Chicago.
Slay played through a knee injury Week 9 against the Vikings but has been unable to practice in the interim. He does have a medical history with his knee, undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a meniscus as a rookie in 2013. The severity of the current concern is unknown, but Slay will yield his starting cornerback spot to DeShawn Shead as long as he's sidelined.
There were no reports following Sunday's game against the Vikings that Slay picked up an injury, so this news is certainly concerning. In fact, it is Slay's second consecutive day of missed practice, which doesn't bode well for his Week 10 availability. The Lions will make the official call later in the week, but if Slay can't go, DeShawn Shead could see an increase in snaps.
Slay complied three tackles and an interception during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings.
Slay earned his second interception of the year when he picked off Kirk Cousins on a ball intended for Adam Thielen in the second quarter. The 27-year-old cornerback has 22 tackles and seven pass defenses on the year.
Slay (knee) is active or Sunday's game versus the Vikings.
Slay avoided missing his first game of the season. Since Stefon Diggs (ankle) is inactive, it's likely Slay is locked onto Adam Thielen for a good chunk of this contest. Slay has 19 tackles, five pass breakups and one interception through seven games this campaign.
