Top Kerby Joseph News

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Estimated as limited Monday

    Joseph (hip) was estimated as a limited participant at the Lions' walkthrough Monday.

    After he sat out of Detroit's win versus Atlanta in Week 3, the estimation is a positive signal for Joseph's potential availability for Thursday at Green Bay. He'll get two more chances to get back to full participation before then.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Ruled out for Week 3

    Joseph (hip) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus Atlanta.

    Joseph hurt his hip early in last weekend's game against Seattle but was able to finish out the win. However, he didn't practice at all this week, thus his inactive status Sunday isn't a surprise. Ifeatu Melifonwu could take over as a starter in his absence.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Misses practice

    Joseph (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Joseph left Sunday's loss to the Seahawks early with the injury but was ultimately able to return to the game and play 88 percent of the team's snaps on defense. He'll work to return to practice Thursday and get healthy for a Week 3 tilt against the Falcons.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Returns to game

    Joseph (hip) has returned to Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Joseph briefly left the game due to a hip injury, forcing Tracy Walker into action. However, Joseph has been cleared to return and should play a major role in Detroit's secondary the rest of the way.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Exits with hip injury

    Joseph left Sunday's game against Seattle with a hip injury and is questionable to return.

    Joseph departed during the Seahawks' opening drive and was subsequently seen running in front of trainers on the sideline. Tracy Walker subbed in after Joseph's exit and would presumably take over for the remainder of the game if the latter is unable to return.

  • 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.
