Lions WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, RB D'Andre Swift ruled out vs. Seahawks

The Detroit Lions are poised to face off against the Seattle Seahawks without two of their top offensive weapons.

Coach Dan Campbell ruled out wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown (ankle) on Friday and added that running back D'Andre Swift (shoulder, ankle) is unlikely to play as well. The team later ruled both of them out.

The absences take a lot of bite out of a Lions offense that has been explosive to start the 2022 campaign.

St. Brown ranks fourth in the NFL in receptions with 23 this season, netting 253 receiving yards (9th) and three receiving touchdowns (T-2nd). His 321 scrimmage yards are fourth-most by a WR entering Week 4.

With St. Brown out, Josh Reynolds and D.J. Chark (questionable, ankle) should be the busiest Lions receivers Sunday against Seattle. Tight end T.J. Hockenson should also see additional targets.

Swift was limited in Week 3 at Minnesota due to a shoulder injury (7 carries for 31 yards, 3 catches for 15 yards). His absence Sunday wipes a dynamic playmaker out of the backfield. Jamaal Williams is in line for an increased workload, with Craig Reynolds likely seeing additional snaps versus Seattle.
