QB situation up in air
ALLEN PARK Coach Jim Schwartz at his press conference today would not speculate on the quarterback situation for Sundays game at Green Bay. Rookie Matthew Stafford missed his first game on Sunday because of a knee injury sustained in the loss at Chicago. Schwartz said they will wait until Wednesday to determine the health of Staffords knee and whether he can practice. If he doesnt practice this week that does not eliminate the possibility that he could play at Lambeau Field.
Schwartz said they are playing to win the game against the Packers. He wont take into consideration the fact that the next week will be a bye week which would give Stafford (or any injured played) an extra week of rest.
Schwartz said he would know more on wide receiver Calvin Johnsons knee injury on Wednesday, but he said he would not label it significant.
However cornerback Eric King does have a significant shoulder injury.
