NFC honors Stafford
ALLEN PARK Matthew Stafford was named the NFC offensive player of the week today for his five-touchdown performance in Sundays 38-37 win over the Cleveland Browns.
Its a huge honor, its awesome. I didnt expect that one to happen. Im just thankful, you have to give a lot of credit to the guys catching the ball and blocking in front of me too. Without those guys it wouldnt have happened, Stafford said.
The rookie quarterback suffered a separated left shoulder on the second-to-last play of the Sundays game. He didnt practice today. Afterward he said its getting better, but if the game was today he probably couldnt play.
Will he play on Thursday?
I have no idea, Stafford said.
