The Lions remained winless with a 16-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving at home. Things continue to get worse for Detroit. RB D’Andre Swift was forced to exit that loss and is expected to miss multiple games due to a shoulder injury. With Swift sidelined, we should see plenty of Jamaal Williams out of the backfield for the Lions.
It looks like the Vikings will also be without their top running back this week. Dalvin Cook hasn’t practiced this week after dislocating his shoulder in Week 12 vs. the 49ers. He had 10 carries for 39 yards before exiting. Alexander Mattison will likely be the lead back for the Vikings, who are 5-6 and need a win to stay within striking distance of the Packers in first place at 9-3.
