Dan Campbell Provides Update on D'Andre Swift's Availability for Week 13

D'Andre Swift is considered day-to-day with a shoulder injury. Head coach Dan Campbell provided an update on Swift's availability ahead of the Lions' Week 13 game with the Minnesota Vikings.

Running back D'Andre Swift left the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving game against the Chicago Bears with a shoulder sprain. 

"That’s a wait and see. Know it’s a shoulder sprain, so we’ll see where it goes," Dan Campbell said, following his team's 16-14 loss to the Bears.

It was reported over the weekend that Swift was day-to-day, as he is working to continue what has turned into a solid sophomore campaign. 

He first injured his shoulder against the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Over the past four weeks, Swift has emerged as the team's most explosive weapon on offense. 

Against the Steelers, he ran for a career-high 130 yards on 33 carries.

In a road loss to the Cleveland Browns, Swift recorded 14 carries for 136 yards. 

On Thanksgiving, Swift netted zero yards on three carries, but secured three receptions for 9 yards, prior to leaving the game. 

"He's pretty sore," Campbell told reporters on Monday. "And so, right now, I would say it's hard to say. It's hard to say that you'd see him playing. But, there again, we'll know a lot more on how he feels tomorrow, and then certainly on Wednesday. But, I know he's hurting a little bit."
