    D’Andre Swift breaks off 50-yard rush for Detroit Lions [Video]

    Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift may have been questionable with an ankle injury but it sure did not show during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Washington Commanders.

    Take a look as Swift breaks off a 50-yard carry to put the Lions in scoring position.

    Unfortunately, the Lions were not able to put any points on the board as they elected to go for it on fourth-and-goal and failed.

    At the end of July, Lions head coach Dan Campbell spoke to reporters about the plan for D'Andre Swift in 2022.

    “I would like to see if, man, can we get him out of camp, get his legs under him, get him in really good shape, like I said get the intensity, get the volume under him and then let’s see where he looks like,” Campbell said. “‘Cause look, this time last year, we went and we had to pull back, man. He missed, shoot, man, a week and a half, two weeks in camp for the most part. So we really never got to put a load on him and get him prepared for a season.”

    “We ran into this with (Alvin Kamara) every year,” Campbell said, referring to his time with the New Orleans Saints. “Look, it goes without saying, Swift is one of our most explosive players on offense. Like literally, we feel like, ‘All right man, if we set this up and there’s any space, this guy can take it to the house.’ Like, he’s got that ability. And so my gosh man, you want those guys out there every play, but you also know you may not have them.”
