The Lions' offense has shown some spark in 2020, largely thanks to rookie running back D'Andre Swift. However, Detroit could be without its offensive engine for a Week 11 matchup with the Panthers.

Swift did not practice on Thursday due to a concussion, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He is now questionable for Sunday. 

The Georgia product has made a major impact for Detroit in recent weeks. Swift has tallied 440 yards in his last five games, scoring four touchdowns. After struggling to find a running game for much of the last decade, the Lions have a likely franchise anchor in Swift. As for Sunday, Matthew Stafford may have to carry the load once again.
