Stafford doesn't practice
ALLEN PARK Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford (knee) and Daunte Culpepper (hamstring) were on the practice field this morning, but did not participate in drills. Stafford did throw a few passes on the sidelines. Drew Stanton was the lone healthy quarterback.
Also missing practice were: LB Larry Foote (wrist), WR Calvin Johnson (knee), FB Jerome Felton, DE Turk McBride (knee), DT Sammie Hill (ankle), and DE Dewayne White (hamstring).
The Lions signed LB Vinny Ciurciu (Boston College), who had spent the last two training camps with the Patriots and Vikings. While signed as a linebacker, Ciurciu was participating in drills with the running backs and full backs.
Also, DE Copeland Bryan, who was injured on Sunday, was placed on Injured Reserve today.
