Stafford report denied

GREEN BAY, Wis. — A report today by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that quarterback Matthew Stafford’s knee injury is more serious than first believed and that he could be done for the season is not true according to Tom Lewand, the Lions’ president. Lewand said it’s nothing but rumor.

Mortensen also reported that Stafford will consult with Dr. James Andrews, a specialist in Birmingham, Ala.  Lewand said the Lions have previously consulted with Andrews regarding Stafford.

The rookie quarterback injured his right knee two weeks ago in Chicago. He will sit out today for the second straight game. He practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday, but then did not practice on Thursday and Friday.
