RB suffered shoulder strain on Thanksgiving

Nerdy Football Analysis: Although the extra three days he gets from playing on Thanksgiving will obviously help his chances of not missing a game, it seems like a longshot Swift will play against the Vikings in Week 13. And there is always the possibility that the winless Lions decided enough is enough and look toward the future as the season comes to a close. Jamaal Williams should be a more than serviceable RB2 option if Swift can’t go in Week 13. Jermar Jefferson (ankle) would likely serve as the change-of-pace if such a scenario.
