Friday update: Lions head coach Dan Campbell said Swift suffered a shoulder sprain and is officially considered day-to-day, which is a positive for the running back and the team. Swift has been listed as questionable for every game this season before ultimately suiting up, so it looks promising for him playing in Week 13.

Update: Swift has been ruled out for the rest of the game against the Bears.

The Detroit Lions could be without their best offensive player for the rest of their Week 12 contest against the Chicago Bears. Running back D’Andre Swift appeared to suffer a shoulder injury and has gone to the locker room. He is questionable to return. Jamaal Williams takes over as the lead running back in his place.

Swift was already quite heavily involved prior to his exit, with three carries and three receptions. Unfortunately, the running back only mustered nine totals yard on those six touches. The Lions do have a touchdown in this game but have looked bad offensively outside of that lone drive.

Managers who played Swift will be hopeful the running back can eventually return to the contest. Even though he is on a bad team, Swift has a been a consistent fantasy producer due to his volume in both the running and receiving game. Game script typically helps his cause as well, as Detroit often plays from behind.
