The Lions won’t have one of their top offensive weapons for the rest of Thanksgiving.
Rerun D’Andre Swift escaped the Lions and Bears Thanksgiving match with a shoulder injury, according to the Fox broadcast, and will then be ruled out.
The runner was injured in the second quarter of the match with the Lions leading 7-3, and will not be back before halftime.

Bears full-back Roquan Smith will make a save that looks to injure Swift, as he lands hard on his right shoulder along the touchline. He will stay for a few minutes before going to the bench.
Swift will be seen on the sidelines and surrounded by Detroit paramedics on the sidelines, as he will be in great pain.
Running back Jamaal Williams will join Swift, and will pick up 31 yards of charge before the end of the round.
Before the injury, Swift had three zero-yard runs, and three receptions in the nine metres. The Lions will only have a total of 31 yards into the break.
The Bears will score 13 unanswered points from the Lions’ opening goal, going into the first half with a 13-7 lead.
