Lions running back D'Andre Swift had 15 carries for 144 yards and three catches for 31 yards last week. It’s going to be tough to equal those numbers today.

Swift is planning to play through an ankle injury, but he is likely to be limited.

According to NFL Network, the Lions are likely to give him a lighter workload.

Last week Jamaal Williams got plenty of usage around the goal line, finishing with 11 carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns, and he may get more red zone usage today against the Commanders.

  1. It’s a shame he’s banged up because he accounted for almost 50% of Detroit’s yards last weekend.

  2. That’s always been the thing with Swift, very talented but unable to carry a full workload due to injury. He’s best used as a gadget back with limited touches. RB lifespan is very short in the NFL especially when injuries occur regularly.
