The Detroit Lions will be without their two best offensive weapons for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Lions coach Dan Campbell said Friday he does not expect either wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown or running back D’Andre Swift to play in the matchup at Ford Field (1 p.m., Fox).

St. Brown leads the Lions with 23 catches, 253 yards and three receiving touchdowns, and has been one of the NFL’s most productive receivers since last December. Swift leads the Lions with 231 yards rushing and has keyed a Lions ground game that ranks third in the NFL at 170.3 yards per game.

Together, St. Brown and Swift have accounted for five of the Lions’ 12 touchdowns and 53% of their yards from scrimmage.

“Listen, man, that’s what it’s all about, next man up,” Campbell said. “We still got Hock (T.J. Hockenson), we got (DJ) Chark, we got Leaf (Kalif Raymond), we got (Quintez) Cephus. I mean, we got Jamaal (Williams). And we got this O-line and a quarterback that can throw it, so we feel good about it.”
