i doubt it
- RB Dundle Swift (ankle)
- TE TJ Hockenson (Hip)
- C Frank Lagnow (foot)
- EDGE Aidan Hutchinson (Thigh) — Returning to practice on Friday
Swift has two limited practices this week and he’s expected to play Sunday, though the Lions are taking a cautious approach to injury management. “I think he’ll be fine,” Campbell assured Friday’s press conference.
