Lions' Matthew Stafford throws with Titus Young, Calvin Johnson

So the NFL labor dispute is still in the courts, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t work to do for the Lions, even if it’s not at the practice facility in Allen Park.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford, who is coming off shoulder surgery in late January, tweeted today (Thursday) that he was getting ready to throw with Calvin Johnson and Lions’ rookie WR Titus Young.

It’s good to see that Young, the Lions’ second-pick out of Boise State, has hooked up with Stafford. It’s never too soon to get used to connecting with a new quarterback.

Also joining them were rookie A.J. Green, the fourth overall pick by Cincinnati; Chad Hall, the Eagles’ wide receiver and Kris Durham, who played at Georgia (Stafford’s alma mater) and was drafted by the Seahawks.

Not a bad bunch.

As for the labor situation, the lockout is still in place thanks to an emergency stay by the 8th Circuit Court on April 29. A hearing is set for June 3 and it appears now that the stay will remain in place until then. Although nothing seems certain.

Also court-ordered mediation will resume on Monday, May 16.

Time is wasting away.
