For the third consecutive season, Detroit Lions running back D'Andre Swift battled a flurry of different injuries. And the story remains the same. These injuries drastically hindered his ability for a true breakout season.

Swift missed three games throughout the year and was eventually unseated by Jamaal Williams as a true everydown back. He ended the year with just 8 starts, less than 600 rushing yards and 8 total touchdowns.

On Monday, Swift spoke about the possibility of offseason surgery to address his ankle and shoulder injuries.

Swift is not planning on undergoing surgery this offseason to fix his ailments. Instead, he harped on the need for offseason rest and rehab to get back to 100% health.

Though Swift has no plans for surgery, the doctors could feel otherwise. He still plans to visit with several doctors in the next few weeks to determine the exact plan of action. As of now, Swift is "operating under the assumption" he'll be fully healthy in 2023.

The talent in endless, but Swift needs to figure out a way to stay on the field for an entire season or his NFL career will be cut much shorter than it deserves.
