D’Andre Swift still in concussion protocol ahead of Thursday game vs. HOU

Lions RB D’Andre Swift, who sat out Week 11 with a concussion, remains in the league’s concussion protocol on Monday ahead of the team’s Thanksgiving day game against the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Swift will have to clear the protocol and log limited practices this week to have a shot at playing on Thanksgiving against the Texans. If he can’t go, it’ll be a split between Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson once again, similar to Week 11.

D'Andre Swift (concussion) ruled out Week 11

RB D'Andre Swift (concussion) will not play in Sunday's Week 11 contest against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Swift will miss Sunday's Week 11 contest against Panthers. He remains in concussion protocol and will not be cleared in time for Sunday's game. Tough break for fantasy managers as Swift was becoming a fantasy RB1 after his breakout performance in Week 6's win over the Jaguars. Look for Kerryon Johnson and Adrian Peterson to split the Lions' backfield Week 11 while Swift is sidelined.

D'Andre Swift (concussion) update: 'will be difficult' to play in Week 11

Lions coach Matt Patricia says "it will be difficult" for D'Andre Swift (concussion) to play in Week 11 against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

"It's just something that came up," is all the info Patricia would give in regards to when Swift suffered the injury. Simply put, this happened too late in the week for the rookie to have a chance at clearing the league's protocol by Sunday. It's a shame as he was emerging as an RB1 following his 149-yard Week 10 performance. Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson will form an underwhelming committee in Swift's absence.

D'Andre Swift (concussion) DNP Thursday, unlikely to play Week 11

RB D'Andre Swift (concussion) missed practice on Thursday due to a concussion. He is unlikely to play in Sunday's Week 11 contest against the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Swift enters concussion protocol and will have to be cleared in order to suit up for Sunday's contest against the Panthers. "The rookie running back has suffered a brain injury, according to the practice report," per Kyle Meinke of MLive. "And with just one day of practice left this week, it appears he won’t have enough time to be cleared for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers." It's unclear when Swift sustained the concussion, but he will most likely sit for Week 11. Look for Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson to lead the Lions' backfield in Sunday.

D'Andre Swift erupts for 149 yards, TD in Week 10 win

D’Andre Swift rushed 16 times for 81 yards and caught all five of his targets for 68 yards and a TD in the Lions’ 30-27 win over the Football Team on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Making his first NFL start, Swift was handed the keys to the backfield and given the "Lions' share" of backfield touches. He swiftly racked up a massive 149 yards on 21 touches, including a touchdown reception. Next week's matchup against Carolina is a potential smash spot for Swift, and he should be considered an RB1/2 for that one.
