Detroit Lions Rumors: Running Back To Have Limited Workload In Upcoming Season

The Detroit Lions' running back D'Andre Swift had a challenging 2021 season due to injuries, but head coach Dan Campbell has expressed faith in Swift's abilities and is committed to finding ways to keep him on the field.

Campbell has hinted at plans to limit Swift's workload for the upcoming season to manage his injuries, indicating that the team is willing to take a proactive approach to ensure Swift's durability in the long run.

The Lions also lost running back Jamaal Williams to the New Orleans Saints, but brought in former Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery.

As a result, they will likely split carries between him and Swift to reduce the burden on Swift.

Despite missing multiple games due to injuries last season, Swift had a decent performance with 1,211 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns in just 14 games.

It remains to be seen how the Lions will manage Swift's workload and utilize their running back duo, but it is clear that the team is committed to finding the best way to keep Swift on the field and maximize his talents. Photo Credit:  Lon Horwedel-USA TODAY Sports
