Vikings need Smith to keep up strong return from COVID-19

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Harrison Smith has made a noticeable impact in his return to the Minnesota secondary following a sudden, COVID-19-forced absence.

With the depleted state of their defense, the Vikings could use several more similar performances from the five-time Pro Bowl safety who received a $64 million contract extension before the season.

Smith had a sack and two hits on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a 34-31 victory on Nov. 21. And last week in the 34-26 loss at San Francisco, Smith notched an interception, two passes defensed and 11 tackles - all season highs. This came after the 32-year-old missed two games with COVID-19, for which he tested positive on the morning of the game at Baltimore on Nov. 7.
