Stafford shoulder update

Posted by Chris Brown on November 9, 2010 – 9:48 am

Lions QB Matt Stafford reportedly has a grade 3 shoulder separation, which could mean he’s done for the season.

That according to’s Tom Kowalski, who said preliminary tests show a grade 3 separation of Stafford’s throwing shoulder. With the injury coming so soon after Stafford’s grade 2 separation in Week 1, if the report is accurate Stafford would be done for the season.

Regardless it’s a virtual certainty he won’t be on the field Sunday against the Bills.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is hoping that backup QB Shaun Hill can return from his broken forearm suffered three weeks ago. Otherwise 3rd QB Drew Stanton would make his third straight start at Buffalo.
