Lions running back D'Andre Swift has been struggling with a groin injury, and it’s unclear how soon he’ll be back to 100 percent.

Detroit head coach Dan Campbell told reporters today that he’s concerned about Swift’s ability to get himself in football shape by Week One.

Campbell has said he’d love to see the Lions’ offense use Swift and Jamaal Williams the way the Saints used Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram when they were teammates and Campbell was an assistant coach in New Orleans.

But if Swift isn’t going to be 100 percent for the start of the season, Williams would be the bell cow. At least for the start of the season, expect Williams to carry the load.

    I’m wondering if a trade with the Rams will happen before one of them goes on waivers?

  3. This is a burn year, there is literally no reason to bring any player who is a part of actual rebuild plans back before they are 100%.

  4. Do people realize Swift had 10 TD’s last season? They need him healthy. Do they have some other young guys that showed promise, yes. However, they are not even close to Swift.
