Who will start at QB?

ALLEN PARK — Coach Jim Schwartz has not ruled Matthew Stafford out as a starter on Sunday at San Francisco.

“It’s definitely still a concern and something we’ll look at in the next 48 hours. We’ll make a decision before Wednesday on whether Matt’s going to be able to go or not. The other thing between Daunte (Culpepper) and Drew (Stanton) we’ll still reserve judgment on that,’’ Schwartz said in his Monday press conference.

Stafford has missed two straight starts with a separated shoulder. Culpepper started both. But in Sunday’s 31-24 loss to Arizona, Culpepper was benched to start the second half and Stanton got a rare chance to play. The Lions were down 17-0 at the half.

Immediately after the game Schwartz said he wanted to wait to comment on Stanton’s play until he watched the game film. The coach was ready with his answer  on Monday.

“He did some good things, he did some not-so-good things, moved the team and put points on the board. I think those are things we had been struggling to do,’’ Schwartz said of Stanton.

 The quarterbacks will be told who will start by Wednesday.  For more on the quarterback situation, see Tuesday’s Oakland Press.
