Detroit Lions star running back D’Andre Swift entered the 2022-23 NFL season as one of the top running backs in the league, but after suffering an injury during the team’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, it looks like Swift will be sidelined with an injury.

According to league insider Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Swift suffered a shoulder sprain on Sunday and even though he likely won’t require surgery, he could be unavailable as he heals.

“#Lions RB D’Andre Swift suffered a shoulder sprain in Sunday’s loss to the #Vikings, per source. It’s not expected to require surgery. But Swift could miss some time,” Pelissero Tweeted on Monday morning.

While Swift has been limited at times this season and has shared carries with Lions teammate Jamaal Williams, he has still been dominant this season, averaging 8.6 yards per carry.

Obviously, this was massive news to NFL fans and fantasy football owners across the country, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it with many suggesting that this open the door for Williams to have a strong showing.

It’s safe to say that Fantasy football owners across the country will be flooding the waiver wire with claims for Jefferson on Wednesday morning.
