Friday late update: Swift was limited again and is listed as questionable on the final injury report. He will likely play through the injury again this week.

Friday update: Swift took part in the open portion of practice on Friday, per Dave Birkett. He did note that the running back was still hobbled, so we’ll see what his designation is on the official injury report later.

Thursday late update: Swift was officially limited on Thursday. Would be nice to see him get a full practice in on Friday and be taken off the injury report.

Thursday update: D’Andre Swift got a rest day on Wednesday, but is practicing on Thursday, per Tim Twentyman. We’ll see if he can get a full practice in, but there isn’t any doubt he’ll be ready to play against the Vikings this weekend.

D’Andre Swift didn’t practice on Wednesday, per Eric Woodyard. According to head coach Dan Campbell, he is just getting a rest day and is feeling much better than last week. That’s good news and hopefully he can get a full practice in on Thursday or at least Wednesday.

Swift saw a reduction in snaps last week, but still played well and found the end zone. He should see an uptick in snaps this week if things go well in practice.

Fantasy football implications

Swift is a must start each week as long as he’s active, as we’ve seen him put up good fantasy numbers when healthy and when playing through an injury. Jamaal Williams remains his backup and has some fantasy football flex upside, but Swift is the no-doubt star of the backfield while healthy or at least close to healthy.
