Slay recorded two tackles and one pass breakup during Sunday's season finale in Green Bay.
Slay played on 100 percent of the defensive snaps despite the meaningless nature of this game. While the durable veteran probably wasn't a huge injury risk anyway, Slay's availability played a significant role in how Detroit was able to shut out the Packers for the first time at home in nearly 50 years. With the offseason now in tow, the shutdown corner can look forward to his second consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl this winter with anticipation of returning to a Lions defense that will look to add some pieces in advance of the 2019 campaign.
Slay recorded three tackles, three pass breakups and one pick-six during Sunday's victory over Arizona.
Slay reminded everyone of why he was selected as an All-Pro cornerback last season, baiting rookie quarterback Josh Rosen into an easy interception late in the third quarter to give the Lions a 10-0 lead. The sixth-year veteran could realistically have another productive day this weekend playing against another erratic rookie in Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen, who's thrown two picks in each of his past two games -- making it four of nine games this season in which Allen has thrown multiple interceptions.
Slay (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Slay was listed as questionable with the ankle issue that cropped up this week, but it was reported earlier Sunday that he was expected to play. The 27-year-old should see some matchups with Larry Fitzgerald, but the Cardinals and rookie QB Josh Rosen haven't shown a consistent passing attack this season.
Slay (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Slay was a mid-week addition to the injury report after the ankle issue limited his participation in Thursday's practice. He repeated the activity level Friday, which will apparently be enough for the Lions' top cornerback to gain clearance for Week 14. Slay may not be in store for too busy of a day against a Cardinals offense that has thrown fewer than 30 times in four of quarterback Josh Rosen's nine starts.
Slay is questionable for Sunday's game at Arizona with an ankle injury.
Slay was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited participant due to the ankle issue. The fact the 27-year-old was still able to practice in some capacity bodes well for his availability Sunday, but his game status is still worth keeping an eye on heading into the weekend.
