Lions QB Matthew Stafford spoke with Detroit reporters Tuesday on a number of topics, including his recovery from knee and shoulder injuries that forced him to miss four games and parts of another during his rookie season.
Stafford had minor knee surgery following the season, according to the Detroit Free Press, and he isn’t running with teammates during the Lions’ offseason conditioning program this week. As for the late-season left shoulder injury sustained during an improbable comeback victory over the Browns, Stafford says he’s not limited in his throwing.
“The shoulder feels good,” Stafford said. “The knee’s coming along. I threw today full speed, felt pretty good. Obviously, it’s just going to keep getting better. I’m excited to be back and ready to go.”
