Detroit Lions starting running back D’Andre Swift has been ruled as questionable for their Monday Night Football game against the Green Bay Packers scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET.

Swift had been limited this week at practice due to a groin injury that has plagued him since August.

The 22-year-old former second-round pick out of the University of Georgia had missed all of the preseason as a result of the injury.

Swift did not make the start when the Lions lost to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 but eventually led Detroit in rushes and pass targets with 11 each. He played 63 total snaps that game.

His backup, Jamaal Williams, recorded a total of 110 yards over 32 snaps.

Expect Williams to nab a similar amount of snaps this week for the Lions’ game against the Packers.

Still, Swift finished that game with 104 total yards and got in the end zone on a 43-yard catch during that Week 1 game.

Swift is currently the 17th-best running back according to The Action Network’s rankings for Week 2. Williams is ranked 32nd overall in those same rankings.
