Week 12 Outlook
According to Alec Lewis of The Athletic, S Harrison Smith is "more than likely" being ruled out for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Smith has been a staple of the Minnesota Vikings' pass defense for years, and in his absence, young players will be expected to step up. Rookie S Lewis Cine and S Josh Metellus are expected to fill his role. The Lions have an ascending offense as QB Jared Goff and WR Amon-Ra St. Brown continue to develop chemistry and RB D'Andre Swift looks better every week.
Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith has been activated from the reserve/COVID list.
The Vikings will get Smith back for a key divisional matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Smith has been back to his DB1 form this season and should be ready for a full complement of snaps for Week 11. Deploy him as usual.
The Vikings placed S Harrison Smith on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
This will keep him out of Sunday's Week 9 game against the Ravens. It's an upgrade for Baltimore's passing attack in this matchup.
The Minnesota Vikings and All-Pro safety Harrison Smith have reached an agreement on a four-year, $64 million contract extension.
It's a surprising deal for the 32-year-old, but perhaps a good portion of the money isn't guaranteed. Smith totaled five interceptions last season and is a vital part of Minnesota's defense.
Harrison Smith finished Sunday’s 20-7 win over the Detroit Lions with three solo tackles and one interception.
Smith is currently second on the team in total tackles with 74 tackles through Week 14. He is a deeper IDP target only.
