  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Maintains prominent role in 2022

    Smith posted 85 tackles (66 solo), 10 pass breakups and five interceptions,over 14 appearances during the 2022 regular season.

    Smith continued his do-it-all role on the back end of Minnesota's defense despite playing in fewer than 15 regular-season games for the first time since 2016. While his tackling production took a dip following his career-best 114-tackle campaign in 2021, the 33-year-old safety still maintained a prominent role in pass coverage, matching his career high for interceptions while also posting double-digit passes defensed for the fifth time. Smith is set to incur a $19.4 million cap hit next season, so it's unclear if the Vikings may look to restructure his deal or move on from him in order to alleviate their difficult cap situation heading into 2023.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Limited participant Wednesday

    Smith (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

    Smith sat out the Vikings' regular-season finale due to knee soreness and remains limited to start prep ahead of the wild-card weekend. The veteran safety is an integral part of Minnesota's defense and likely won't need to participate much in practice to be cleared for Sunday's matchup against the Giants. Either way, he'll have two more opportunities to log a full session before the team needs to make a decision on his status for the playoff matchup.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Out for regular-season finale

    Smith (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bears, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

    Smith developed what the Vikings believe to be some knee soreness following the team's practice Friday, per Seifert, and it appears Minnesota is taking the precautious route heading into the playoffs. The 33-year-old safety has recorded 85 tackles and 10 passes defended, including five interceptions, this season. No matter the outcome of this Week 18 contest, Minnesota is guaranteed to host a home playoff game during the wild-card round of the playoffs, so it will be worth keeping an eye on Smith's practice activity early on next week.

  • Vikings' Harrison Smith: Not in line to start Sunday

    Smith (neck) isn't expected to start Sunday's contest at Detroit, Ben Gossling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Listed as questionable for Week 14 action due to a neck injury, Smith at the very least is in line to yield his starting spot at strong safety to Josh Metellus, but whether or not he's active won't become known until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. Considering Smith has racked up 73 tackles and five interceptions in 11 appearances this season, the potential for him to have no guaranteed snaps Sunday may force managers in IDP leagues to look elsewhere for a replacement.
