Thumbs down on Stanton

Postby moochman » Fri Aug 22, 2008 12:08 pm

Durable Drew Stanton is going to miss 4 weeks due to a sprained ligament in his right thumb, according to Killer Kowalski on MLive. Link:

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.

Let's just stop drafting from Michigan State. Seems to be a trend with injuries. :-b

But, it looks like they've found a short term replacement. But, who knows, might be a full time replacement.

What the heck, wasn't there any X-Buc QBs floating around?

Again the falseness of NimRod. He wants players that eat and breathe football, yet he grabs a QB who chose to try and play baseball over football. Drew Henson-the man who had it all and did so little with it.
