Now, according to a report from Ian Rapoport, Swift will have an expanded role in the Lions Week 7 matchup vs. the Atlanta Falcons.

“The Lions are going to start Adrian Peterson still at running back,” Rapoport said on NFL GameDay. “But keep an eye on D’Andre Swift. I am told he is going to have an expanded role on this offense after a breakout performance last week. Going to see much more of him.”
