S - MIN
Week 14 Outlook
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, S Harrison Smith has agreed to a pay cut to remain with the Vikings, making $8 million in 2023 with $2 million in incentives.
Smith, a six-time Pro Bowl player for the Vikings, was set to have a cap hit of $19 million in 2023, and the Vikings had an out if they couldn't agree on a restructure. Smith tied his career high of five interceptions in 2022 and had 10 passes defended with 85 tackles in 14 games. Smith provides veteran leadership and strong play at the safety position, necessary for a defense that struggled in 2022.
Harrison Smith is reportedly good to go against the Giants Sunday, per NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
Smith was listed as questionable with a knee injury for the Vikings’ wild-card game with the Giants. Smith did not suit up for the Vikings in the final regular season game, but will give it a go in the wild-card round Sunday.
Harrison Smith is officially inactive for Minnesota's Week 14 game against Detroit.
This is a blow to an already-poor Vikings secondary. Fantasy managers should fire up every Lions' receiver they can get their hands on.
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.
