  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Confirmed out for Week 13

    Lions head coach Dan Campbell confirmed Swift (shoulder) won't play Sunday against the Vikings, Benjamin Raven of reports.

    Campbell doesn't expect the Lions to shut Swift down for the season, saying the running back "may be a week away" from returning. Reports from earlier in the week suggested Swift could miss multiple games with an AC joint injury, but the Lions are hoping it'll be just be a two-week absence in a worst-case scenario. Jamaal Williams is expected to draw the Week 13 start and handle most of the backfield snaps and touches, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike working in reserve. After that, the Lions head to Denver in Week 14 and host the Cardinals in Week 15.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Not expected to play Sunday

    Coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Swift (shoulder) is "maybe a week away" from retaking the field.

    It was reported earlier this week that Swift could miss multiple games with an AC join sprain in his shoulder, so it's not a major surprise the team isn't expecting him to play Sunday against the Vikings. The 22-year-old should be officially ruled out later Friday when the Lions release their final Week 13 injury report. Jamaal Williams is poised to step into the lead role in Detroit's backfield in the meantime, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike available as the depth options.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Could sit out multiple games

    Swift (shoulder) didn't practice Wednesday and could miss multiple games, though he wants to return in short order, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Swift is reportedly dealing with an AC joint sprain, an injury that could prompt the winless Lions to take a cautious approach with one of their few core players until his shoulder heals. Though Swift hasn't been ruled out from playing in Sunday's game against the Vikings, he seems more likely than not to miss his first contest of the season. If that's the case, Jamaal Williams would be in store for a lead role Sunday, with rookie Jermar Jefferson and 27-year-old journeyman Godwin Igwebuike representing the depth options currently on the active roster.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Sits out another practice

    Swift (shoulder) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice.

    Detroit hasn't officially ruled Swift out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, but his consecutive absences from practice to begin Week 13 prep seemingly backs up Jeremy Fowler of's report from Wednesday suggesting the running back could miss multiple weeks. According to Fowler, Swift is contending with an AC joint sprain of his shoulder, and given the 0-10-1 Lions' status as the only non-contender in a jam-packed NFC playoff picture, the organization could take a cautious approach with its top back. Expect the Lions to formally rule Swift out for Sunday's game following Friday's practice, positioning Jamaal Williams to step into a lead role out of the backfield.

  • Lions' D'Andre Swift: Week 13 status in doubt

    Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Monday that "it's hard to see" Swift (shoulder) playing against the Vikings this weekend, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Swift sprained his shoulder in the Lions' 16-14 loss to the Bears on Thanksgiving Day, with the injury preventing him from returning for the second half of the contest. He's still feeling sore four days later, and Campbell acknowledged the running back will have a tough time gaining clearance for the Week 13 contest. While the Lions likely won't make an official call on Swift's status until after their final practice of the week Friday, Jamaal Williams tentatively looks in line to serve as Detroit's lead back for at least one game.
