  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Competing for starting role

    Jacobs appears to be competing with Emmanuel Moseley (knee) for the starting boundary cornerback job opposite Cameron Sutton, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Playing his way into a full-time role over the past two years, Jacobs has made a big name for himself in Detroit. The undrafted player has significantly outperformed 2020 third overall pick Jeff Okudah, who's now in Atlanta. While Sutton's three-year, $33 million contract probably locks him into the No. 1 spot on the depth chart, Jacobs seems to have a good shot at stopping Moseley from stealing his starting job, especially with his counterpart coming off a torn ACL.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Successful second season

    Jacobs recorded 42 tackles, one sack, eight pass breakups and one interception over 12 games in 2022.

    Jacobs missed the first five games of the year while working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in 2021, but he finished the season as arguably Detroit's most reliable cornerback. Not only was Jeff Okudah (elbow) benched down the stretch after an impressive first half of the season, Amani Oruwariye and Mike Hughes -- who will be free agents at the end of the league year -- were benched at different points as well. Jacobs ultimately became a mainstay in the defensive lineup by year's end, and the Alabama product seems primed to return to Detroit in 2023 as a near every-down player for new defensive backs coach Dre Bly.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Logs season-high seven stops

    Jacobs recorded seven tackles (five solo), one sack and one pass defensed during Sunday's 34-23 win over the Vikings.

    Jacobs tied his previous career high with seven stops in Sunday's win over Minnesota, while he also played all but two defensive snaps for Detroit in the contest. With fellow cornerback Will Harris questionable for this weekend due to a hip issue, Jacobs could once again play a prominent role in the Lions' secondary Sunday versus the Jets.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Rejoins active roster

    Jacobs (knee) was activated from the PUP list Saturday.

    Jacobs started the season on the PUP list after suffering a torn ACL in December. He returned to practice Oct. 5, and will now finally get a chance to make his return Sunday against the Cowboys.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Returns to practice Wednesday

    Jacobs (knee) was designated to return from the PUP list and practiced Wednesday.

    Jacobs started the campaign on the PUP list while he continued to rehab from a torn ACL, but he's returned to practice at the earliest possible time, which is encouraging for his availability moving forward. The second-year defensive back will have 21 days to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he'll revert to the PUP list for the remainder of the campaign.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Staying on PUP list

    Jacobs (knee) was moved to the regular-season PUP list Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Head coach Dan Campbell provided hope last week that Jacobs would avoid this given the progress Jacobs has made in his recovery from a torn ACL, but it turns out that will not be the case despite Jacobs being setback-free. Jacobs will thus miss at least the first four games of the regular season while Detroit moves forward with Will Harris and Chase Lucas as its top depth at cornerback behind presumed starters Amani Oruwariye, Jeff Okudah and Mike Hughes.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Avoids regular-season PUP list

    Head coach Dan Campbell hopes Jacobs (knee) will be ready to play early in the 2022 season, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Jacobs tore his ACL last December and has been under wraps most of the offseason. However, the fact that he avoided placement on the regular-season PUP list during Tuesday's roster cuts suggests that he is expected to be available within the first four weeks of the regular season. When healthy, Jacobs should be in the mix for snaps at outside cornerback behind Amani Oruwariye, Jeff Okudah and Will Harris.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Joins PUP list

    Jacobs (knee) was placed on the active/PUP list Sunday.

    Jacobs suffered a torn ACL last December, and it's still unknown when he'll be able to compete. Missing the start of the season is not out of the question, so this move isn't unexpected. Once Jacobs returns to full health, he figures to compete for a depth spot in the Lions secondary.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: No timetable for full return

    Secondary coach Aubrey Pleasant declined to put a timetable on Jacobs' (knee) return to the field, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Slowly working his way back from a torn ACL from last December, Jacobs did not take part in organized team activities or minicamp this spring. He's uncertain to be ready for the start of the regular season, and he doesn't seem to be on track to be much of a participant in training camp, either.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Not practicing Tuesday

    Jacobs (knee) was unable to participate in Tuesday's practice at mandatory minicamp, Jeremy Reisman of SB Nation reports.

    The cornerback is still recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in December, making his absence from practice an unsurprising one. His next benchmark will be next month's training camp, but Jacobs may not be ready to go by then.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Getting up to speed

    Jacobs (knee) was on the field for an offseason workout May 10, according to the Lions' official site.

    Jacobs is bouncing back from a torn ACL he suffered last December. He'll be over seven months removed from surgery by the time training camp kicks off this summer, but it remains a strong possibility that he could miss games to start to the 2022 season. When healthy, Jacobs will compete for a rotational role at cornerback under Amani Oruwariye, Mike Hughes, Jeff Okudah (Achilles), and AJ Parker.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Uncertain for start of 2022 season

    Jacobs (knee) could miss games at the start of the 2022 season, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Jacobs played well in 2021 across the nine starts the undrafted rookie made in place of Jeff Okudah (Achilles). However, he suffered a torn ACL in December, and he looks poised to miss the entirety of the offseason training program plus training camp.

  • Lions' Jerry Jacobs: Placed on injured reserve

    Jacobs (knee) was placed on IR on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Jacobs announced on Monday via his personal twitter account that he suffered an ACL injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Neither the severity of the injury nor whether it will require surgery is known at this point, but based on the tone of Jacobs' tweet and the move to IR, it seems there may be at least a chance of an ACL tear.
