ALLEN PARK — Quick hits from Detroit Lions’ availability today (Tuesday):
— Coach Jim Caldwell said he hasn’t determined if Matthew Stafford will play on Thursday at Buffalo in the final preseason game. Caldwell said it won’t be blanket decision on which starters will play and who won’t.
— The Lions made it official on the waiver claim of Emil Igwenagu from the Philadelphia Eagles. He played three games for the Eagles in 2012 and none last year. He’s listed as a tight end, but Caldwell called him a fullback. Said they hope to get him some playing time on Thursday night if he can get caught up to speed on the offense.
— Safety DeJon Gomes was placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury. Caldwell wouldn’t offer more specifics.
— The Lions also claimed Michael Egnew on waivers (from the Dolphins) on Monday. But that transaction is not official.
— Caldwell said no decision has been made on the starting right tackle between Corey Hilliard and LaAdrian Waddle, but he did say he is comfortable with both of them.
— Caldwell's best quote Tuesday: "Flattery is like flowers, you can smell 'em but you can't eat 'em."
