Lions’ backfield getting healthier for MNF

Detroit removed RB JAMAAL WILLIAMS from its final injury report for Monday night’s game at Green Bay, and while the team listed fellow RB D’ANDRE SWIFT as questionable with the sameMore groin injury that has bothered him since before the season started, it appears that Swift will suit up for MNF as well.

Sermon to be active for Niners, but …

Rookie RB TREY SERMON is expected to make his belated NFL debut for San Francisco today, although various sources report that fellow rookie ELI MITCHELL remains firmly ahead of Sermon inMore the 49ers’ pecking order after original starter Raheem Mostert sustained a season-ending knee injury in Week 1.

Bears to increase snaps for Fields

It can be dangerous to buy into reports about projected usage, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport are both telling viewers that the Bears will increase rookie QBMore JUSTIN FIELDS’S involvement in their offense for today’s home opener vs. Cincinnati. Fields continues to generate excitement with flashy plays behind the scenes, and starter ANDY DALTON, for whom today’s matchup is a “revenge game” after his long tenure with the Bengals, was not impressive in Week 1 at the Rams. Should be only a matter of time before Fields takes over for real. Less
