Stafford to participate in QB challenge at Georgia spring game
Matthew Stafford’s rehab has been going well and he has been throwing according to updates on his Twitter account.
Maybe the Lions quarterback will show off a little of his progress on Saturday at Georgia’s G-Day, their spring football game which is part of the “It’s great to be a Bulldog” weekend.
According to the school’s web site Stafford, along with D.J. Shockley, David Greene and Eric Zeier, will participate in the Legends Quarterbacks Challenge where the quarterbacks earn points for various skills. The game will be televised in Georgia, so maybe we'll see a clip.
The news release doesn’t offer more specifics, but I wouldn’t expect to see Stafford heaving the ball deep downfield. He’s not crazy.
He is coming back from shoulder surgery he underwent on Jan. 21 after starting just three games last season. If the Lions have a chance at improving their 6-10 record next season (if there is a season), they need Stafford healthy.
