That’s looking more and more like it will be the case.
After sitting out Wednesday’s practice, Swift was once again a non-participant with his shoulder injury. Swift’s absence would significantly impact Detroit’s offense, as he leads the team with 984 yards from scrimmage and six total touchdowns. Tight end T.J. Hockenson is second with 534 yards.
In better injury news for Detroit, offensive tackle Penei Sewell (illness) was back on the field as a limited participant on Thursday after he didn’t practice on Wednesday. The same goes for receiver KhaDarel Hodge, who also missed Wednesday’s session with an illness.
