Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell was recently concerned about running back D’Andre Swift’s status for the start of the season. Swift dealt with a groin injury throughout training camp, so there was worry that he wouldn’t be in shape to play in Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers.

However, Campbell revealed Tuesday that Swift is good to go. Michael Brockers is also going to be ready to roll for Week 1. More details here:

The Lions are expecting big things from Swift as he heads into Year 2. As a rookie, the running back had 521 rushing yards and eight touchdowns to go along with 357 receiving yards and two scores. The former second-round pick shared a backfield with veteran Adrian Peterson, but now he’s in line to be the clear-cut starter.

While Swift could enjoy a breakout season in Detroit, not many people are expecting much out of the Lions in 2021. They traded Matthew Stafford for Jared Goff in the offseason after Stafford asked out, and they also totally overhauled their wide receiver corps. Perhaps Goff and the passing game will surprise, but the expectations outside of the building aren’t high.

In addition to the questions on offense, Detroit had the worst defense in the NFL in 2020. Even if there’s some improvement there, it would take a massive jump to get to merely competent.

D’Andre Swift looks to be one of the few bright spots on this Lions roster. It’s good to see that he’ll be ready to play in Week 1.
