Vikings re-signed CB Jacob Lacey.

26-year-old Lacey knows Minnesota's defensive scheme and adds depth to an incredibly banged-up secondary. Eli Manning has a tempting matchup Monday night.

Vikings released CB Jacob Lacey.

26-year-old Lacy's roster chances were shot when he needed a knee scope, costing him 2-4 weeks. The move forces Minnesota to eat $65,000 in signing and workout bonuses. Lacy could resurface on a roster once he gets healthy.

Vikings CB Jacob Lacey is out 2-4 weeks after having his knee scoped.

Lacey is competing with the likes of A.J. Jefferson, Marcus Sherels, and Brandon Burton behind the nickel set of Xavier Rhodes, Chris Cook, and Josh Robinson. The missed time and knee woes could hurt Lacey's 53-man roster chances.

Vikings CB Jacob Lacey underwent surgery to repair a dislocated thumb on Wednesday.

It's unclear how long Lacey will be sidelined, but we would be surprised if the former Lions and Colts corner wasn't ready for camp. Lacey was seeing reps as the second-string slot corner in OTAs behind Josh Robinson. Pro Football Focus graded Lacey as the 63rd-best cornerback in 2012. He has 36 career starts.

Vikings agreed to terms with CB Jacob Lacey, formerly of the Lions.

Lacey visited the Twin Cities two weeks ago, but the sides didn't agree to terms until after the draft. Lacey has never been a full-time starter, but has started at least eight games every year since 2009. He started nine for the Lions last season before a subluxation of his knee cap landed him on injured reserve in Week 15. He'll be a candidate to take Antoine Winfield's place in the slot.

Free agent CB Jacob Lacey visited the Vikings on Thursday.

Lacey, 26 next month, played in just 11 games last season due to knee and foot injuries. However, he has started 36 games over his career and would provide quality veteran depth at a position of need in Minnesota.

Free agent CB Jacob Lacey worked out for the Raiders Wednesday.

The Raiders have already signed Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins this offseason, so Lacey would just be depth. He started nine games for the Lions last season, grading out 63rd among corners in Pro Football Focus' rankings.

Lions placed CB Jacob Lacey (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Lacey suffered a subluxation of his knee cap in Week 15. Signed to a one-year contract last March, Lacey started nine games for the Lions, recording 36 tackles, four passes defensed, and an interception. He had come on strong in pass coverage the past six weeks after a slow start. Lacey is a free agent in 2013.
Tue, Dec 18, 2012 05:31:00 PM

Lions coach Jim Schwartz said at Monday's presser that CB Jacob Lacey has avoided ligament damage to his knee, but that his injury could still be "significant."

It doesn't sound like Lacey will be suiting up for the final two games of the season. That's bad news since the Lions' injury-ravaged secondary will be contending with Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler. Still only 25 years old, Lacey is headed back to the open market after playing under a one-year deal this season. He's graded out in the middle of the pack in Pro Football Focus' cornerback rankings.

Lions CB Jacob Lacey sustained a knee injury during Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Lacey left in the first half and never returned. Drayton Florence finished out the game opposite Chris Houston.
Mon, Dec 17, 2012 10:38:00 AM

Lions declared CB Jacob Lacey (foot) inactive for Thursday's game against the Texans.

Drayton Florence draws the start in place of Lacey. The Lions do get a boost as S Louis Delmas, the heart and soul of their defense, will play through his knee woes. As earlier reported, Jeff Backus (hamstring) is inactive, giving rookie Riley Reiff the start on Matthew Stafford's blind side. Also inactive for the Lions are WR Titus Young, QB Kellen Moore, DT Corey Williams (knee), OT Corey Hilliard and DE Ronnell Lewis.

Lions CB Jacob Lacey (concussion) will resume practicing this week.

Lacey missed Weeks 7 and 8, but should be good to go against the Jaguars. It's excellent news for a team that was forced to start rookie Jonte Green opposite LCB Chris Houston against the Seahawks. Bill Bentley (shoulder) remains sidelined, however.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 02:55:00 PM

Lions declared CB Jacob Lacey, CB Bill Bentley, S Amari Spievey, LB DeAndre Levy, OT Jason Fox, OT Corey Hilliard and QB Kellen Moore inactive for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Calvin Johnson (knee) is active, as expected. Rookie Jonte Green will start opposite LCB Chris Houston, while Erik Coleman will man strong safety in Spievey's absence. It's good news for Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, though it would be unwise to count on the rookie signal caller to take advantage of the situation. Seattle will stick with its usual ground-and-pound formula in the Motor City.
Sun, Oct 28, 2012 11:46:00 AM

Lions RCB Jacob Lacey (concussion) and SS Amari Spievey (concussion) have been ruled out for Week 8 against the Seahawks.

Lacey and Spievey's absences shouldn't be felt as much this week because Seattle rarely throws the football, but Detroit's secondary clearly remains an injury-ravaged mess. And the Lions have already had their bye week.
