Friday PM Update: Swift is off the injury report after a second consecutive full participation in practice on Friday. This alleviates any concern over his status for Sunday’s game, and he should see a regular workload.
Thursday Update: Swift was upgraded to a full participation on Thursday. It is a good sign that he was able to be upgraded, and with another full practice on Friday, he could head into the weekend without an injury designation.
Detroit Lions running back D’Andre Swift was listed as limited on the Wednesday injury report ahead of Sunday’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Swift has been a frequent sight on the injury lists this season as he has worked through multiple issues and injuries — this time, it’s his ankle.
Fantasy football implications for Week 14
If Swift is limited or unable to play on Sunday, the Lions need not worry. Backup Jamaal Williams has more than proved himself this season, as Swift has been in and out with injury. Williams has scored 14 rushing touchdowns this year and has had at least one touchdown in each of the Lions’ past four games. Swift has only scored six times this year.
Williams is a valuable guy to have in your fantasy roster, so keep an eye on updates on Swift’s ankle this week as you set your lineups.
