Shifts to IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-13

Jacobs (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

The 26-year-old had already been ruled out for Detroit's wild-card affair due to a hamstring injury, but it now seems as if issue will hold him out for the remainder of the season. With Jacobs going on IR, Steven Gilmore and Khalil Dorsey could both see increased work in the Lions' secondary.

Won't play in wild-card round

Jacobs (hamstring) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Eric Woodyard of reports.

Jacobs logged back-to-back DNPs to end Detroit's week of practice, so it's no surprise that the 26-year-old has been ruled out for Sunday's affair. In Jacobs absence, Steven Gilmore could see increased work as a rotational cornerback in the Lions' secondary.

Deemed FP for Tuesday's walk-through

Jacobs (hamstring) was estimated as a full participant in Tuesday's practice walk-through, Eric Woodyard of reports.

Jacobs missed Sunday's Week 16 win over Minnesota due to a hamstring issue, and he was unable to practice at all last week. However, the third-year cornerback's estimated full participation Tuesday suggests that he's shown significant improvement. Detroit plays Dallas on Saturday, and Jacobs will likely be able to return for that contest as long as he doesn't have any setbacks.

Won't play Week 16

Jacobs (hamstring) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Jacobs sustained a hamstring injury during the Lions' Week 15 win over the Broncos, and he was unable to practice all week, so it's no surprise that he won't suit up Sunday. With Jacobs his second game of the season in Week 16, expect Steven Gilmore to see increased snaps in Detroit's secondary.

Held out of practice Wednesday

Jacobs (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Jacobs exited in the second half of Saturday's game against Denver due to a hamstring injury and didn't return. The severity of the issue is unclear, but his status for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings is in doubt given his inability to practice Wednesday. Prior to his exit Saturday, it appeared Jacobs had lost his starting role, as all 13 of his snaps were on special teams. Khalil Dorsey started in Jacobs' place Saturday and performed well, so he is likely to continue working in that role regardless of Jacobs' status for Week 16.

Suffers hamstring injury

Jacobs is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Broncos due to a hamstring injury.

Jacobs exited in the second half of the game, though the severity of the issue is unclear. He did not record a stat before leaving the contest.

Totals seven stops on Thanksgiving

Jacobs recorded seven tackles (all solo), including one for loss, in Thursday's Week 12 loss to Green Bay.

Jacobs finished second on Detroit in tackles, one behind rookie Brian Branch. Jacobs' seven stops were his most since he tallied seven against the Falcons in Week 3. He's been a full-time starter throughout the campaign and has already set career-high marks with 47 tackles (43 solo) and three interceptions through 10 games.

Manages full practice Thursday

Jacobs (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

After sitting out in Week 7 at Baltimore, Jacobs appears to be on track to suit up Monday versus Las Vegas. He should immediately step back in as one of Detroit's top cover corners opposite Cameron Sutton.

Inactive for Week 7

Jacobs (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.

Jacobs will miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury. He was a limited participant at each practice during Week 7 prep, so there's a good chance he's facing just a one-game absence. In his stead, Brian Branch, Chase Lucas and Khalil Dorsey are candidates for increased snaps opposite Cameron Sutton.
