Lions running back D'Andre Swift has been limited in training camp because of a groin injury.

Swift has missed significant practice time because of his sore groin, according to Kyle Meinke of Mlive.com. Swift has been in full pads most days but doing only individual drills and not participating in team work.

As a rookie last season, Swift had 114 carries for 521 yards and eight touchdowns, and added 46 catches for 357 yards and two touchdowns.

The Lions have been planning for Swift and Jamaal Williams to be a 1-2 punch at running back. If this injury lingers, that would likely result in more work for Williams.

  1. The Detroit Lions and disappointing running backs. Name a more iconic 21st century duo.

  2. These players and trainers still haven’t bought in to the fact that a lot of these nagging muscle injuries can be fixed by incorporating yoga in their daily lives.

    You just made Dan Campbell punch a stranger. Good job.

  4. Someone has to take the injury torch that Matt “garbage time stat” PADford left behind!

    Great to see those Lions excuses starting early for the 65 year failure organization!

    Supposedly Barry Sanders did a couple of hours of stretching at the beginning and end of each day. He was rarely hurt.

  6. One important difference between Matt Patricia and Dan Campbell is that Patricia always tried to appear to be smarter than he really is and Campbell tries to appear as less smart than he really is.
