Lions vague on Stafford

Posted by Chris Brown on November 8, 2010 – 10:06 pm

The Detroit Lions weren’t revealing much when it came to the throwing shoulder injury of Matt Stafford on Monday.

Head coach Jim Schwartz would only say they’re not “talking surgical options” concerning Stafford’s re-injured throwing arm according to MLive.com. Stafford was in just his second game back for a third-degree AC joint separation in his throwing shoulder.

After being tackled around the ankles on a scramble he landed squarely on his shoulder and left the game.

“I’ve got to talk some more with these doctors and kind of figure out what they’re thinking,” said Stafford Monday on his Detroit radio show. “It’s kind of frustrating to be coming back and, two games later, be knocked out again. We’ll take it day by day and figure out what the plan is.”

Stafford’s chances do not sound good for Sunday’s game against the Bills, especially with this being the second injury to his throwing shoulder.

Schwartz is hoping his backup QB Shaun Hill is ready to return to the lineup now three weeks removed from breaking his forearm. He served as an emergency 3rd QB Sunday against the Jets while third stringer Drew Stanton got the start.
