    Lions concerned about Week 1 status of D’Andre Swift and Da’Shawn Hand

    Allen Park — As the Detroit Lions prepare for the team’s third and final preseason game, focus slowly begins to shift to next month’s season-opener against the San Francisco 49ers. That’s still more than two weeks away, but Lions coach Dan Campbell acknowledged concern about the health of two key players, running back D’Andre Swift and defensive tackle Da’Shawn Hand. 

    Swift, the dynamic second-year back who racked up 878 yards and 10 touchdowns from scrimmage as a rookie, has been dealing with a nagging groin injury most of training camp. That’s limited his practice participation and sidelined him the first two preseason games. 

    At this point, Campbell said the team is uncertain about what he’ll be able to offer Week 1. 

    “Swift concerns me a little bit with getting his wind and being able to take load. How much can he with where he’s at?” Campbell said. “… Look, I’ll state the obvious here. He’s got ability. There’s things that we feel we can do with him, offensively, that really benefit us. But we don’t know if he’s going to be there. We don’t know if he’ll be there, we don’t know even if he is how much we’ll be able to get out of him. Until we can get him out to practice on a consistent basis, we won’t know that.”
