Shoulder strain could sideline him until Week 15
D’Andre Swift (shoulder) seems unlikely to play in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings and “feels like a longshot” for Week 14 versus the Denver Broncos, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. (NFL Network – Ian Rapoport)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The good news is the Lions have yet to place him on IR, so a Week 15 return seems more than reasonable. The bad news is that avoiding a winless season is about the only incentive to bring him back. Jamaal Williams should have a clear path to 15-20 touches for at least this week and maybe even Week 14. Anything beyond that would be a bonus for his fantasy managers, but there is a small possibility the Lions look at their 0-13-1 record in Week 15 and decide not to expose Swift to any more punishment.
