D'Andre Swift, RB (DET)

Confirmed out for Week 13

Lions head coach Dan Campbell confirmed Swift (shoulder) won't play Sunday against the Vikings, Benjamin Raven of MLive.com reports.

Campbell doesn't expect the Lions to shut Swift down for the season, saying the running back "may be a week away" from returning. Reports from earlier in the week suggested Swift could miss multiple games with an AC joint injury, but the Lions are hoping it'll be just be a two-week absence in a worst-case scenario. Jamaal Williams is expected to draw the Week 13 start and handle most of the backfield snaps and touches, with Jermar Jefferson and Godwin Igwebuike working in reserve. After that, the Lions head to Denver in Week 14 and host the Cardinals in Week 15.
