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 RB D’Andre Swift (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Seahawks. HC Dan Campbell said they’ll “cut him loose.” There’s still some added risk with Swift in his first game since Week 12, but there’s also RB1 upside.
It doesn't sound like the Lions plan to limit RB D'Andre Swift in his first game back from a shoulder injury. "We're not going to put him out there until he's healthy and we feel like he's going to be ready to go this week, and he's been wanting to go," HC Dan Campbell said Wednesday. "We feel like we're in a place where, 'Let's go. Cut him loose and let him continue to grow and get better.'" There's still a chance Detroit's plans change mid-game -- or that Swift aggravates the shoulder injury. But there's also a good chance he steps right back into the role that made him a top-10 fantasy RB over the first 11 weeks of the season.
Lions RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's basically confirmation that he'll be back for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks.
Lions HC Dan Campbell said Wednesday that he expects RB D'Andre Swift (shoulder) to return for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. Swift has been out since Week 12 but put in 3 limited practices last week. We'll look for clues on how big a role Swift will play in his 1st game back, but he'll carry plenty of upside vs. Seattle's 31st-ranked RB defense.
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.
