Stafford doesn't practice
ALLEN PARK Matthew Stafford did not practice today, but was on the field watching Drew Stanton and Daunte Culpepper. Coach Jim Schwartz is expected to announce this afternoon which quarterback will start on Sunday in San Francisco.
Also not practicing were linebacker Larry Foote, cornerback Phillip Buchanon (shoulder) and fullback Vinny Ciurciu.
Long snapper Dan Muhlbach (concussion) practiced for the first time in a week.
In roster moves, the Lions signed center Dan Gerberry, a rookie free agent from Ball State, off the practice squad and released center Melvin Fowler. They also re-signed defensive tackle Terrance Taylor (Michigan) to the practice squad. Taylor had been signed to the practice squad last week and cut over the weekend.
