Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift explains how he has battled through various injuries to play in 2022.
D'Andre Swift is working his way back from both shoulder and ankles injuries suffered at the start of the 2022 NFL season.
When asked Wednesday if he would play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys,
Detroit's third-year running back expressed, "I'm pushing towards that. Like I said, I'm taking it day-by-day."
Missing the team's past couple of games -- losses to the Seahawks and Patriots -- was challenging for the speedy running back.
"It's tough. It's tough. But, like I said, all I can do is control what I can control. And, that's getting better.
It is what it is," Swift said. "It's football. Everybody is going through stuff, injuries. But, some stuff you play through,
some things you can't. You try to play through them, but it is what it is. It's something you've got to keep going. Take it day-by-day, like I said.
"I trust the training staff. They have been doing a great job.
Just different stuff every day, and trying to get back out there with the guys to help this team win games.
But, it's been tough. It's been tough. Doing a better job mentally, doing progress every day. Little steps, progress every day. That's all I can do."
