  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Four picks as rookie

    Joseph tallied 83 tackles, eight pass breakups, four interceptions and two forced fumbles over 17 games in 2022.

    Detroit's defense took a big hit after losing safety Tracy Walker (Achilles) in Week 3, but Joseph was largely successful in filling in for the veteran. Not only did the rookie manage to become the first player to ever pick off Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers three times in a year, Joseph simultaneously showed plenty of upside as an IDP asset -- starting with his 10-tackle, two-interception performance against Green Bay in Week 9. However, with Walker set to return in 2023, it is not clear as to whether Joseph will continue to handle the role that allowed him to post these kinds of stats.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Upgrades to limited activity

    Joseph (back) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, per the team's official site.

    Joseph missed Wednesday's session entirely as a result of a back issue, but his upgrade to limited activity Thursday is an encouraging sign regarding his Week 17 availability. Considering that the rookie was able to play every defensive snap for Detroit in Week 16, expect him to practice without limitations Friday and eventually start at safety against the Bears on New Year's Day.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Clear of injury desigation

    Joseph (back) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Joseph was unable to practice Wednesday due to the back injury, but he improved enough over the past couple days to avoid an injury designation. The rookie third-round pick has 74 tackles (46 solo), three interceptions and two forced fumbles this season.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Dealing with back issue

    Joseph didn't practice Wednesday due to a back injury.

    Joseph recorded seven tackles during the Lions' Week 16 loss to the Panthers, but he appears to have picked up a back injury as well. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but he'll have two more opportunities to return to practice before the team needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Bears.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Amasses seven stops in loss

    Joseph recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Saturday's 37-23 loss to the Panthers.

    Kerby's seven stops this past weekend now gives him a total of 73 in that category on the year. The rookie will likely continue operating in his usual every-down safety role when Detroit hosts the Bears on New Year's Day.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Leads team in tackles

    Joseph recorded eight tackles (seven solo) during the 40-14 win versus the Jaguars on Sunday.

    Joseph led the team in tackles, finishing with his second highest total on the season. The rookie third-round pick played every snap for the second week in a row, and has now done so in six games since taking over the starting job for Tracy Walker (Achilles) in Week 4. Joseph will look to maintain this level of production next week against the Vikings.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Will play Sunday

    Joseph is active for Sunday's matchup against Chicago.

    Joseph was limited to start Week 10 prep due to concussion protocols, but he was upgraded to a full participant Friday and will be available Sunday. The rookie third-round pick is coming off a season-high 10 tackles against Green Bay and has totaled 21 stops over his past three appearances.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Gets in full practice Friday

    Joseph (concussion) was a full participant at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Chicago, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Though he is not totally in the clear yet, that he practiced in full Friday is a good sign that Joseph should get clearance from team physicians to play in Week 10. If the rookie third-rounder can't play though, C.J. Moore could be in line to start alongside DeShon Elliott on Sunday.
