D'Andre Swift Trending Towards Not Playing against Seahawks

D'Andre Swift would have to make significant improvement this week to play against Seahawks.

The Detroit Lions will now turn their attention to beginning their preparations for the Seattle Seahawks. 

Unfortunately, the team will likely be without one of their top offensive weapons this week. 

Head coach Dan Campbell told reporters that the team's talented running back, D'Andre Swift, would have to make "significant" improvements over the next four days, in order to be able to suit up at Ford Field Sunday.

Heading into Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, Swift was dealing with a nagging ankle injury. 

Unfortunately, he also suffered a shoulder injury in the team's 28-24 loss on the road to its divisional rival. 

"We don't play today," Lions wide receivers coach Antwaan Randle El said. 

There is still time over the next four days for players to rehabilitate and play this weekend. 

The team will now look to Jamaal Williams and Craig Reynolds to shoulder the burden rushing the football this week.  

Injuries mounting 

After a tough loss, the team will be without several players at the team's practice facility on Wednesday. 

Those not practicing on Wednesday include Swift, Frank Ragnow, T.J. Hockenson, Jonah Jackson, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Josh Reynolds. 

DJ Chark was available earlier on Wednesday for the walkthrough and could still practice. However, he could also sit out the first practice of the week. 

The first official injury report will be released Wednesday afternoon.
