Lions' Stafford and Twitter a match made in heaven
Matthew Stafford is a nice guy, but last season he just didn’t have much to say due to his shoulder injuries. It was understandable since he only started three games and the Lions didn’t want him to share any specifics about the injuries.
The Lions quarterback is rehabbing now following surgery on Jan. 21 and has found the perfect way to communicate -- on Twitter where you are limited to 140 characters.
His latest tweet came today (Wednesday) and sounds encouraging: “Icing down the shoulder after a long throwing session. Felt good again. Love rehabbing down here at andrews institute. Dallas this weekend!’’
The Andrews Institute in Pensacola, Fla., is run by Dr. James Andrews, a well-known orthopedic surgeon, who operated on Stafford.
