Stafford improving, but has yet to throw

Jim Schwartz might have us believe that there’s a chance Matthew Stafford could play against the Vikings in Week 3. Literally, he’s saying there really is a chance.

Meanwhile, Chris McCosky points out in The Detroit News that Stafford hasn’t tried to throw a football with his right arm (his injury is to his throwing shoulder), and noticed he couldn’t untie his shoes with his right hand. A glimmer of hope, though, for Lions fans, as it does sound like Stafford is improving.

“It’s going good,” Stafford said. “I am just trying to keep my shoulder as strong as possible. Whenever I am ready to go, I will play. It feels better.”

Sounds like it’s a done deal that Shaun Hill makes his second straight start for the Lions.
