NFC Notes: Lions, Packers, Vikings


Lions HC Dan Campbell said he’s not sure when RB D’Andre Swift will return.

“I still think we’re taking this week-to-week, day-to-day,” Campbell said, via Lions Wire. “There again, I know as of this morning he’s better than he felt last week. He feels better than he was I guess Saturday when we worked with him. So, our plan is to work him back into practice this week and see how he feels.”
