According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Slay did not practice on Friday and it seems “highly unlikely” to play on Sunday against the New York Giants.

If Slay is unable to give it a go, the Lions secondary will have their work cut out for them, especially with safety Quandre Diggs being traded to the Seahawks earlier in the week. Look for CB Mike Ford to step in for Slay if he is unable to play.
