Lions Make Important Decision On Star Running Back D'Andre Swift
The Detroit Lions offense has struggled in the absence of star running back D'Andre Swift.
But things are looking good for the Lions' starter heading into Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Swift was removed from the Lions' injury report on Friday.
As a result, he is expected to play against Miami this weekend.
Prior to suffering an ankle injury earlier this month, Swift appeared on pace for a breakout season.
He was averaging over 100 yards from scrimmage per game through the first three weeks, during which the Lions scored a whopping 95 points.
But the offense has stagnated lately, totaling a mere six points in their last two games combined.
