ALLEN PARK, Mich. – After losing four straight games, the Detroit Lions should get a boost on offense as running back D’Andre Swift is set to return for Sunday’s home game against the Miami Dolphins.
Swift has missed the last three games with shoulder and ankle injuries. He was a full training participant all week and is no longer on the injury log.
“It’s important to just get him back on the field, get him going again, I would say,” said running backs coach Duce Staley. “Just the little things – from putting the ball down, running routes, making sure his eyes are in the right place. Just stuff we do with other running backs every day.”
Swift rushed for 231 yards on 27 carries with one touchdown in three games before the injury and averaged a career-best 8.6 yards per carry.
Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is considered questionable against Miami, but head coach Dan Campbell said all week that St. Brown was going “in the right direction” in the concussion log after the Dallas loss.
“I would assume we’ll have him this weekend,” Campbell said.
