  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Should be 100 percent for camp

    Joseph (hip) -- who won't take part in practices this spring -- expects to be fully healthy by the start of training camp, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Joseph underwent an offseason procedure to address a hip injury that originally occurred in Week 2 of the 2023 campaign. Though he returned to play after missing two contests en route to logging 82 tackles and four picks in 15 regular-season outings overall, the issue evidently lingered to the point that it required attention following the postseason. Once he's back to 100 percent, Joseph will reprise his starting free safety role with the Lions.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Out until training camp

    Joseph (hip) will not be cleared to practice until training camp, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    The report notes that Joseph is bouncing back from an offseason procedure to address a hip injury that he sustained in Week 2 of the 2023 season. Assuming he returns to health in time to begin the coming campaign, Joseph figures to serve as Detroit's starting free safety and is likely to rack up tackles and pass breakups in that role.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Another productive season

    Joseph (arm) registered 82 tackles and 11 passes defended including four interceptions over 15 regular-season games in 2023.

    Joseph continued to make a name for himself in Detroit after posting a second straight season with four interceptions. The Illinois product also held quarterbacks to a 58.5 QBR in coverage while not allowing a touchdown all season. With Tracy Walker out of the picture and C.J. Gardner-Johnson uncertain to return to Detroit this offseason, Joseph enters the 2024 campaign as Detroit's clear top option at free safety and he has the potential for triple-digit tackles with double-digit PDefs if he can stay healthy for a full season.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Exits game with arm injury

    Joseph (arm) is questionable to return to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers, Eric Woodyard of reports.

    Joseph sustained the injury in the third quarter. He had two tackles (one solo) before his exit. In Joseph's absence, Ifeatu Melifonwu will likely slot into the free safety spot alongside strong safety starter C.J. Gardner-Johnson, while Will Harris provides depth.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Has monster day at Minnesota

    Joseph recorded nine tackles (six solo) and two interceptions in Sunday's 30-24 win at Minnesota.

    Joseph's first pick came toward the end of the first half, and his second came in the middle of the fourth quarter. Both came on deep pass attempts by Nick Mullens. Joseph's nine total tackles were also good for the team lead in Week 16. The Lions will travel to Dallas Saturday.

    Joseph recorded seven tackles (five solo) and one interception in the Lions' victory over the Chargers in Week 10.

    Joseph picked off Justin Herbert for his second interception of the season. His seven tackles were also his third highest total of the season. The safety was reliable once again, seeing the field for 61 defensive snaps (90 percent). He will look to stay productive in Week 11 versus the Bears.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Gets first INT of 2023 in win

    Joseph had two solo tackles and an interception in Monday's 26-14 win over the Raiders.

    His interception of Jimmy Garoppolo came one play after the Lions turned the ball over in Detroit territory. Joseph's two tackles in the win was by far his lowest of the season but came on a night when Garoppolo completed just 10 of 21 passes for 126 yards.

  • Lions' Kerby Joseph: Leads team in tackles

    Joseph registered 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens.

    Joseph left in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game to be evaluated for a concussion, though Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reported Monday that the safety did not suffer a brain injury. His 10 tackles against the Ravens was a season high and he's now up to 31 total tackles for the season, which is tied for third on the team. Joseph and the Lions' defense will look to bounce back in Week 8 against the Raiders on Monday night.
