The Lions list Swift (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

For the first time since suffering an AC joint sprain of his shoulder in the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bears, Swift won't be ruled out ahead of the weekend, as he was prior to each of the Lions' last three games. Swift earned the questionable designation after he was a limited participant in practices Wednesday through Friday, a development that gives him a shot to play Sunday. Even if the Lions clear him to start in advance of the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, Swift could be in store for a lighter workload than he enjoyed in previous weeks, given that he's making his way back from injury in addition to the fact that Craig Reynolds has impressed the past two weeks while serving as Detroit's lead back. Jamaal Williams also is back from a two-game stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, leaving the Detroit backfield more crowded compared to when Swift first sustained the injury.
