The report that Stafford will have an MRI on his re-injured right shoulder comes via Chris Mortensen and does not come as much of a surprise.
After the game, Jim Schwartz said that Stafford “is very sore,” and “it’s something we’re going to have to take a very serious look at.”
The fear here is that Stafford has seriously re-injured his throwing shoulder and will have to miss significant time, if not the rest of the season, but let’s keep our fingers crossed for the best.
The Detroit News isn’t hiding their concern, either, though:
the fact that the training staff didn’t spend a whole lot of time on Stafford on the sideline is a good indication that they might have known exactly what the injury was and that it’s likely the same injury — or one very similar — that forced Stafford to miss five games this season.
We’ll keep you posted.
