RB - DET
Lions running back Jermar Jefferson (knee, ankle) is active for Thursday’s game against the Bears.
Jefferson was limited in practice this week and ultimately drew the questionable tag heading into Week 12. He’ll likely fall into a third-string role behind D’Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams.
Lions running back Jermar Jefferson has been ruled out for Week 11 due to ankle and knee injuries. He didn’t practice all week.
With Jefferson out and Jamaal Williams questionable, there’s a chance that Detroit uses 27-year-old Godwin Igwebuike as it’s backup to D’Andre Swift. Williams hasn’t played since Week 7 and was limited in practice this week.
Jermar Jefferson (ankle) looks like he avoided major injury but still may miss some time.
Jefferson is coming off his best week in the 2021 season and looked good playing for the injured Jamaal Williams. The setback could open the door for Godwin Igwebuike.
Lions GM Brad Holmes says rookie RB Jermar Jefferson has "improved every week."
Jefferson has had a strong preseason, and the uncertain status of D'Andre Swift could give the rookie more of an early-season role than we'd otherwise anticipate. Jefferson is someone to add as a bench stash in deeper fantasy leagues, and he could be a worthwhile waiver altogether if Swift doesn't progress quickly in the days to come.
Jermar Jefferson ran three times for 22 yards in Saturday's Week 2 preseason game against the Steelers.
Jefferson started with both D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams inactive. He'll likely enter the season as Detroit's No. 3 RB.
