Another productive season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-27

Joseph (arm) registered 82 tackles, 11 pass breakups and four interceptions over 15 games in 2023.

Joseph continued to make a name for himself in Detroit after posting a second straight season with four interceptions. This year, the Illinois product also held opposing passers to a 58.5 QBR when being targeted while not allowing a touchdown in his coverage all season, per Pro Football Focus. 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 that has the potential for triple-digit tackles and double-digit PBUs if he can stay healthy for a full season.

Exits game with arm injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-28

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.

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 towards 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.

Snags second pick

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.

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 off 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 the lowest for him of the season, but came on a night when Garoppolo completed just 10-of-21 passes for 126 yards.

Leads team in tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-24

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.

Clears concussion check

Joseph didn't suffer a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

Joseph exited the game late in the second half and underwent concussion testing, but it was deemed he didn't suffer a brain injury. The second-year safety has started all five games he's appeared in this season, registering 31 tackles (26 solo) and three pass breakups. He should be good to go next Monday night against the Raiders.

Leaves game versus Ravens

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-22

Joseph is being evaluated for a concussion after exiting Sunday's loss to the Ravens in the fourth quarter.

Joseph left the game after logging 10 tackles (nine solo) and did not return. While the Lions have yet to announce if the 2022 third-round pick did in fact suffer a concussion, Tuesday's injury report should provide more clarity on Joseph's status.

Set to play Sunday

Joseph (hip) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Panthers.

Joseph missed the past two games after sustaining a hip injury in Week 2 against the Seahawks. His return is a welcome one for a Lions' secondary that will be without Brian Branch (ankle) and with C.J. Gardner-Johnson (pectoral) still on IR.
