Lions Star Expected To Return In Week 8

The Detroit Lions got off to a red-hot start in 2022 on the back of an amazing offensive output, but in recent weeks, that has dwindled, as two major stars, D'Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown have both not been able to stay healthy, but for this first time in weeks, the Lions may have both of them on the field at once in Week 8.

In just three games this year, Swift has gone over 300 all purpose yards to go along with two Touchdown's, and although the offence has been solid with Jamaal Williams as the lead back, the impact just isn't the same as when Swift is active. He has racked up over 2,000 all purpose yards through two full seasons and three games in 2022, adding 19 Touchdown's to his tally, and while the Lions season likely can't be saved, if he and St. Brown can stay healthy, they'll certainly be in the market to acquire a young QB that can capitalize on that in the off-season. 

With plenty of the season to go, Swift can establish himself as one of the best young backs in the league, and after a promising start to his career in Detroit, this is a player that has the potential to do some very big things in his NFL career.
