Detroit Lions rookie running back D’Andre Swift will miss his third consecutive game this week, as he has been ruled OUT in Week 13. Swift cleared concussion protocol this week, but a late-week illness forced him to miss the final two days of practice this week, and therefore, he will not play against the Chicago Bears.
Swift joins wide receiver Kenny Golladay as two of Detroit’s biggest weapons to miss Sunday’s game. Golladay hasn’t played since suffering a hip injury in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts. Since both players have been sidelined, the Lions offense has struggled to create points, averaging just 12.5 points per game in the past two weeks.
The good news for Detroit is that wide receiver Danny Amendola is back after missing the past two weeks.
For the Chicago Bears, all of the main players who were listed as questionable are ACTIVE and will play. That include Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks, and Allen Robinson. Both starting offensive linemen who were questionable—Germain Ifedi and Charles Leno Jr.—are also both active.
Here’s a list of the Lions’ Week 13 inactives:
WR Kenny Golladay
DT Da’Shawn Hand
CB Jeff Okudah
RB D’Andre Swift
DE Austin Bryant
QB David Blough
And here are the Bears inactives:
RB Artavis Pierce
OL Lachavious Simmons
NT Daniel McCullers
WR Riley Ridley
LB James Vaughters
