Lions running back Jermar Jefferson (knee, ankle) is active for Thursday’s game against the Bears.

Lions running back Jermar Jefferson has been ruled out for Week 11 due to ankle and knee injuries. He didn’t practice all week.

Fantasy Impact

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) may miss some time

Jermar Jefferson (ankle) looks like he avoided major injury but still may miss some time.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Jermar Jefferson has 'improved every week', per Lions GM

Lions GM Brad Holmes says rookie RB Jermar Jefferson has "improved every week."

Fantasy Impact

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 rushes three times on Saturday night

Jermar Jefferson ran three times for 22 yards in Saturday's Week 2 preseason game against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Jefferson started with both D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams inactive. He'll likely enter the season as Detroit's No. 3 RB.
