D'Andre Swift, RB (DET)

Not expected to play Sunday

Coach Dan Campbell said Friday that Swift (shoulder) is "maybe a week away" from retaking the field.

It was reported earlier this week that Swift could miss multiple games with an AC join sprain in his shoulder, so it's not a major surprise the team isn't expecting him to play Sunday against the Vikings. The 22-year-old should be officially ruled out later Friday when the Lions release their final Week 13 injury report. Jamaal Williams is poised to step into the lead role in Detroit's backfield in the meantime, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike available as the depth options.
