Draft Scout Darius Slay News
12/09/13 - CB Darius Slay had arthroscopic surgery Friday to repair a torn meniscus. Coach Jim Schwartz said he did not plan to put Slay on IR, which means he hopes he will be ready if the Lions make the playoffs.
11/26/13 - CB Darius Slay, who was benched after Week 3, will get the start, most likely at right cornerback, if Chris Houston (foot) can't play.
10/14/13 - --CB Darius Slay, who has struggled throughout his rookie season, stepped up and played well in an emergency situation Sunday. Starter Rashean Mathis went out in the first quarter. Slay played 48 of the 68 defensive snaps and had four tackles and held his own on the outside.
09/16/13 - RCB Darius Slay was benched during the game Sunday, the second straight week he was relieved. Veteran Rashean Mathis took over at right corner in the second quarter. Slay played only on nickel and dime packages the rest of the way. Coach Jim Schwartz said there has been no change at that position, that he likes the ability to bring in Mathis when he needs to.
09/09/13 - CB Darius Slay, rookie second-round pick, was benched in the fourth quarter Sunday in favor of veteran Rashean Mathis. Schwartz said on Monday, though, that Slay was still the starter. "It was more of a call to the bullpen," Schwartz said. "(Slay) had given up a play in front and then a play behind and it looked like they were getting ready to start picking on him. The biggest thing there is we didn't want him to start playing conservative because of the double-move play he had given up over the top. You just need to put that fire out and what better person (is there) to put a fire out than a very experienced player like Rashean Mathis?"
