If the score can remain close at Lambeau Field on Monday Night Football, Lions running backs coach Duce Staley is hoping the "thunder-lightning" combination in the Lions' backfield can continue to perform well.
"Hopefully, the rest of these games we can kinda keep that package together and go with the thunder-lightning combo," Staley told reporters on Friday. "Hopefully, those guys just go out there and perform."
Swift was limited in practice on Thursday, but the coaching staff is not overly concerned, ahead of Detroit's first divisional matchup of the season.
"I don’t think we’re going to have to manage his reps (in practice). Of course, you know about the groin already, because you spoke of it and he’s done a great job dealing with it," Staley said. "Our training staff has done a great job getting him prepped and ready to play. So, I don’t think we’re going to have to manage."
