ALLEN PARK, Mich. — After dropping 4 straight games, the Detroit Lions really should get a increase on offense with operating back D’Andre Swift set to return for the Sunday household matchup against the Miami Dolphins.
Swift has missed the previous 3 games with shoulder and ankle injuries. He was a complete participant in practice all week and is no longer listed on the injury report.
“Just receiving him back out there on the field, receiving him back into the swing of issues, I’ll say, is crucial,” operating backs coach Duce Staley mentioned. “Just the small issues — from placing the ball away, operating routes, producing confident his eyes are in the proper spot. Just stuff we do each day with other operating backs.”
Swift racked up 231 yards on 27 carries with a touchdown in 3 games ahead of the injury, averaging a profession-ideal eight.six yards per carry.
Lions receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown is listed as questionable against Miami, but head coach Dan Campbell mentioned all through the week that St. Brown was “trending the proper way” following getting into the concussion protocol following final week’s loss at Dallas.
“I would anticipate us possessing him this weekend,” Campbell mentioned.
