Williams landed on the list on the Friday heading into the game in Denver. The team recently promoted Reynolds who has played great over the last few weeks, so it remains to be seen how the Lions divide up RB carries for the rest of the season.
The tweet went on to say Reynolds has 37 carries for 195 yards with an 88.3 PFF grade over the last two weeks. He's no threat to Swift in town but it's worth it for the Lions to see what Reynolds can do with for the rest of the season heading into 2022. It looks like at the very least he's passed Igwebuike and Jefferson on the depth chart. He'll be tough to trust in the Lions offense but is worth adding for the depth at the very least.
Hockenson is dealing with a hand issue and Swift a shoulder injury. The Lions aren't likely to push either player to return with another lost season at hand. If Swift can't go and Williams is still out, it could be another combo of Jefferson, Igwebuike, and Reynolds at running back. The team said Jefferson didn't get much time because he was out of practice with a sickness leading up to the game. It's possible he would get more work in Week 15, which would really complicate the RB workload.
