Lions RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. He returned to limited practices this week and might be back for Week 17. Jamaal Williams and Craig Reynolds should handle most of Detroit’s backfield work today.

Lions RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons. He got in 3 limited practices this week and seems to be trending toward playing. We’ll find out for sure around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. RB Jamaal Williams was activated from the COVID list on Monday, and RB Craig Reynolds has been good over the past 2 weeks. But Swift figures to lead this backfield if he suits up vs. Atlanta.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said Monday that RB D'Andre Swift will return to practice this week, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. He has missed the past 3 games with a shoulder injury initially suffered on Thanksgiving. We'll see whether Swift can make it all the way back to game action. His potential return, of course, would stop Craig Reynolds from being a fantasy option.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams has been activated from the COVID list, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. RB Craig Reynolds impressed in Williams' absence the past 2 weeks, so it's unclear what this backfield will look like the rest of the way. We'll look for clues leading up to Sunday's game.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams was not activated from the COVID list and is out for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. That again leaves Detroit’s backfield to Craig Reynolds, Godwin Igwebuike and Jermar Jefferson. Reynolds led the way with 11 carries and 2 targets last week, but HC Dan Campbell hinted that Jefferson could have a bigger role today. Reynolds is the best fantasy bet, but you should try to avoid this backfield.

Lions RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. He remained sidelined in practice all week and has no timetable for return. RB Jamaal Williams remains on the COVID list as of Friday afternoon, so we might get another game with Craig Reynolds as Detroit’s lead back.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. He's looking unlikely to return for this weekend's game vs. Arizona. We'll see if RB Jamaal Williams makes it off the COVID list for that one. If not, Craig Reynolds would be the favorite for touches in Detroit's backfield.

Lions RB Jamaal Williams has been placed on the COVID list and won't play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) has been ruled out. That leaves Detroit with RBs Godwin Igwebuike and Jermar Jefferson. It's completely unclear how carries will be divvied, but Igwebuike played on passing downs last week, so he's the better fantasy play if you're forced to invest here. Avoiding the backfield is your best bet, though.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Dan Quinn said Swift is "improving" but didn't comment on his status for this weekend's game vs. the Broncos. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on Swift in Week 14 lineups.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Thursday that it "feels like a long shot" for Swift to make it back for Week 14. We'll keep an eye on him next week. Jamaal Williams is a volume-fueled RB2 in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

"It feels like a long shot" for Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) to play in Week 14, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. That jibes with ESPN's Jeremy Fowler's Wednesday report that Swift could miss "multiple weeks." Fantasy owners should keep Swift stashed but plan on being without him for at least the next 2 weeks. Jamaal Williams will be a volume-based RB2 for however long Swift is out.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift could miss "multiple weeks" with the sprained AC joint in his shoulder, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. "Lions will be cautious with their top back," Fowler adds. That makes sense considering the 0-10-1 Lions are looking ahead to 2022. Swift should be stashed on benches in all fantasy leagues, but Jamaal Williams will be a volume-based RB2 for however long Swift is out.

Lions HC Dan Campbell hinted Monday that RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) is unlikely to play vs. the Vikings this weekend. "It’s hard to say that you’d see him playing, but there again, we’ll know a lot more on how he feels tomorrow and then certainly Wednesday," Campbell said. "But I know he’s hurting a little bit." We'll keep an eye on Swift this week, but fantasy owners should be making other plans for Week 13. If Swift is out on Sunday, Jamaal Williams would be a volume-based RB2.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift is considered "day to day" with the shoulder injury he suffered on Thanksgiving, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. So Swift dodged a serious injury and seemingly has a shot to be ready for Week 13. RB Jamaal Williams will still be worth adding if available on waivers wires in case Swift can't play vs. the Vikings next weekend.

Lions HC Dan Campbell said after Thursday's loss to the Bears that RB D'Andre Swift has a shoulder sprain. The type and severity of the sprain will determine how long Swift is sidelined. We'll pass along an update when we get one. Jamaal Williams will be a volume-fueled RB2 play for as long as Swift is out.

Lions RB D'Andre Swift hurt his shoulder in the 2nd quarter of Thursday's game vs. the Bears. He's officially questionable to return. We'll update Swift's status when we know more. His absence leaves Jamaal Williams as Detroit's feature back.

Update: Swift has been ruled out.
