Re: Matthew Stafford (out for Week 2)

Matthew Stafford appeared to hurt his shoulder at the end of the first half against the Bears on Sunday, according to Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter.

Our View: Stafford was sacked by Julius Peppers, fumbled on the play, and appeared to land awkwardly on his right shoulder. Afterward, he was seen without his pads and wearing a baseball camp, hinting that his day might be over. We'll let you know whether or not he comes out at the start of the second half, but it doesn't look good right now. Matthew Stafford did not return to action when the Lions took the field in the second half. He came out of the locker room with his shoulder wrapped. While the Lions are saying that his return is questionable, we do not expect Stafford to return today. Stafford's Week 2 status is unclear at this point, and we'll let you know when any new information leaks.

Big disappointment that the guy couldn't make through even a half of football with all the new weapons in Detroit. The knock on Stafford was that he is injury prone and the first season + 1 game of his career appears to reinforce that. Depending on the severity of his injury, Stafford potentially could miss six games. Obviously a blow to the entire Lions offense. I don't need to be Mel Kiper to predict the Lions beef up their O-Line early in next year's draft!

That's a bit harsh given how the injury occurred. Not too many people would NOT have gotten injured that way.

It did not look good, seeing him come out mummified after the half. The tests results are not all in, but speculation is that he'll miss at least a few weeks. It's entirely conceivable that the injury is more significant though. I was watching the game with a group of Olympic-level track coaches (I know. It is weird) and the Javelin guys all said "that could easily be a separated shoulder" when they saw the play. I will hope not... I don't have a Lion on any of my teams, and I am a Bears fan, but I love Michigan and think that they deserve some dignified football.

BTW, I love having one thread for everything, but most of this thread is tied to old info that's no longer in any way relevant.

Not a fan of this format myself. The lastest on the Paper Lion is that he has a seperated shoulder, but does not need surgery. Seeing James Andrews, a name whose mere utterance make me cringe. Stafford is probably never going to be able to stay healthy enough, this is his third injury in almost as many games (it seems) a knee, L shoulder, R shoulder. Not a good sign when your resume includes more injuries than big plays.
