sprained ligament in his right thumb is expected to sideline Detroit Lions quarterback Drew Stanton for the first three games of the regular season. The Lions have a bye in the fourth week and Stanton, the team's No. 3 quarterback, is expected to return after that.
Stanton jammed his thumb into another player's shoulder pad during Thursday's workout. He was recently examined by team physican Dr. Kyle Anderson.
"There's no fracture and no surgery is indicated,'' Lions athletic trainer Dean Kleinschmidt said. "The treatment is to immobilize it so he's in a cast for four weeks.
Good thing I am not one to say I told you so...
Seriously though, speedy recovery Drew.
