Lions' Matthew Stafford To Resume Throwing This Week

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford announced on a Detroit radio interview Monday night that he will begin throwing again this week. This will be the first time since suffering a separated shoulder that he’ll give it “a full-on go.”

Via the Detroit Free Press:

"They’ve told me that I need to try to do some light throwing this week and see how it feels, and I’ll kind of take it from there," Stafford said. "I’ll throw a little bit probably tomorrow or the next day and see how it feels."

In his weekly radio appearance, coach Jim Schwartz says Stafford will do some “light throwing,” and there’s no plan to rush him back onto the field.

"I think we’re happy with where he is based on the injury that he had, and like I said as soon as he’s able to do things like that we’ll sort of cut him loose to do it but not before."

Stafford says he's not rushing himself either, "just trying to do what the doctors are telling me" with his rehabilitation.
