Lion run again D’Andre Swift will not return to Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day game after sustaining a shoulder injury. Swift left the game in the second quarter after being dealt with near the sidelines by Bear pavers Roquan Smith. Swift was originally supposed to be problematic to roll back.
As the 35th overall pick in the 2020 draft, Swift is having a very successful second season in Detroit. He entered Thursday’s game with 555 yards of dash and four touchdowns. Swift also caught 43 420-meter passes and two touchdowns. Swift is about to have two of the best games of the season. He ran 130 yards on 33 executions during the Lions’ Week 10 game in Pittsburgh. Swift ran 136 yards and had just 14 touchdowns in last Sunday’s loss in Cleveland. In 13 games last season, Swift scored a total of 878 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Detroit’s second top trolley is Jamaal Williams, who signed with the Lions this season after starting his career with Packers. A fifth-year veteran, Williams entered Thursday’s game with 323 yards and two touchdowns on 78 carry.
The Lions were leading the Bears 7-0 by the time Swift got out, but a moment of encounter ensued during Jimmy Graham’s first touchdown of the season. Detroit went down 0-9-1 under head coach Dan Campbell in his first year. Four of the Lions’ losses have come in single-player matches, including Sunday’s 13-10 loss in Cleveland.
