Detroit Lions News

D'Andre Swift, Appears bulked up

Swift appears to have added muscle this offseason, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Analysis: This report is merely based on visual observations made at recent offseason practices, but any added muscle could probably be considered a positive sign for a 5-foot-9 running back who has missed at least three games in each of his first two professional seasons. While it's not fair to consider Swift "injury prone" this soon, it's possible that his fantasy value could be higher if he had not been slowed down by head and shoulder injuries in back-to-back years. After all, when not counting the games in which Swift was limited by injury in 2021, his 97.5 scrimmage yards per game would have ranked eighth among all running backs.

Kenny Golladay, Sheds red jersey at OTAs

Golladay (undisclosed) is practicing Thursday without a red jersey, Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Golladay spent nearly a week taking limited reps at OTAs while wearing a red jersey, but it now appears that he's back to full form. Coach Brian Daboll never disclosed the full details of Golladay's health, but it seems like he was only dealing with a minor injury. Now heading into the second season of his four-year, $72 million contract with the Giants, staying on the field will be a clear priority for Golladay as he works to establish himself as the No. 1 target for Daniel Jones.

Matthew Stafford, Not throwing during OTAs

Stafford didn't throw during Los Angeles' voluntary OTAs on Monday due to the inflammatory injection he received in his elbow this offseason, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Stafford said in mid-April -- less than six weeks after the injection -- that his arm was feeling great, but he'll continue to play it safe during the offseason to avoid any potential setbacks. Rams head coach Sean McVay said the quarterback likely won't throw at all during OTAs, but he expects him to ramp things up for the start of training camp in July, per Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Kenny Golladay, Limited in practice

Coach Brian Daboll said Thursday that Golladay (undisclosed) is participating in OTAs while wearing a red jersey at practice, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Daboll said Kadarius Toney (undisclosed) is also wearing a red jersey, but he opted not to comment further on either wideout's injuries. It's completely possible that the Giants are simply taking a cautious approach to the health of both Golladay and Toney, but the situation will warrant monitoring until more details are disclosed. Coming off a disappointing 2021 campaign in which he fought with injuries, only racking up a 37-521-0 line through 14 appearances, it will be key for Golladay to remain healthy for the 2022 season.

Deontez Alexander, Joins Seahawks

Alexander signed with the Seahawks on Friday, John Boyle of the teams official site reports.

Analysis: Alexander previously had a stint with the Lions' practice squad from 2018 to 2019, but has not been in the league since. The 25-year-old will work to make his second chance in the NFL click.
