No sign of Stafford at Lions practice
ALLEN PARK -- No sign of quarterback Matthew Stafford at practice today (Thursday). This is likely not good news for the Lions
Stafford threw for the first time on Wednesday and was expected back on the field today if his shoulder did not have an adverse reaction. Stafford injured his right/throwing shoulder on Nov. 7.
The media is allowed to watch the first 30 minutes or so of practice and there was no sign of Stafford at all.
After Wednesday’s practice Stafford did not seem too optimistic about a return this season.
Drew Stanton has been named the starter for Sunday’s home game against the Packers.
Also, defensive end Barry Turner (Nebraska), who was claimed off waivers from the Bears, practiced.
RT Gosder Cherilus and WR Derrick Williams, who both practiced on Wednesday, were out today.
