Week 12 vs. Houston Texans
Even without D’Andre Swift to garner carries at Carolina last week, Adrian Peterson was held to seven rushes for 18 yards, sharing the backfield with Kerryon Johnson. In the shutout loss, the entire Detroit offense couldn’t get things going all day, totaling less than 200 yards. Swift should return from the concussion protocol on Thursday, which relegates Peterson to second string. Be sure to monitor the injury report though, as the veteran could make for a sneaky start against Houston’s terrible run defense.
