Culpepper officially out

The Lions have just announced that quarterback Daunte Culpepper will not play in tonight’s preseason game at Buffalo. Culpepper had not practiced since he took eight stitches in one of his middle toes after stubbing it on carpeting at home after Saturday night’s game. Even though he had not practiced coach Jim Schwartz did not rule him out on Wednesday.

Rookie Matthew Stafford will start and play about 25 snaps. He’ll be followed by Brooks Bollinger, who was signed on Monday, and possibly Kevin O’Connell, who was claimed off waivers on Tuesday.

Drew Stanton is out following arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday.
