Lions RB D’Andre Swift’s Availability for Sunday in Doubt Due to Concussion

Lions rookie running back D’Andre Swift didn’t practice Thursday due to a concussion, leaving his status for Sunday’s game against the Panthers in doubt considering the NFL’s concussion protocol rules, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

It’s not clear when Swift suffered the concussion. He was not listed on the team’s injury report Wednesday and spoke with the media for almost five minutes after practice ended Wednesday.

Swift was coming off the first start of his career last Sunday against Washington, where he rushed for 81 yards on 16 carries and caught five passes for 68 yards and a touchdown. Swift has rushed 70 times for 331 yards and four touchdowns while catching 31 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

He was asked Wednesday what he could potentially do in his second start against the Panthers.

“Keep being consistent. Keep getting better,” Swift said. “There’s a lot of stuff I can get better at, looking at the tape from last game. Just keep being consistent and keep getting better each week.”
