Tailback D'Andre Swift sprained his left shoulder Sunday and the Detroit Lions expect him to miss time, head coach Dan Campbell said.

"We'll see where he's at. It could be an issue," Campbell said Monday.

Campbell said Swift hurt the shoulder against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Campbell said he's contemplating giving Swift time off with two games before a bye week. That would push Swift's return to Week 7, after games against the Seahawks and Patriots and the scheduled Week 6 bye.

Jamaal Williams stepped into the lead role last season when Swift suffered a shoulder sprain in December.

Williams had 20 carries for 87 yards and two touchdowns against the Vikings, and leads the team with four TDs.

He has a team-leading 43 carries for 168 yards this season.
