DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – The Detroit Lions got some good news about local QB gone big time after Matthew Stafford visited Dr. James Andrews regarding his shoulder.   Stafford, who played his high school football at Highland Park,  will not require surgery.  He will continue to rehab and the Lions are hopeful that he will be able to garner some playing time again this season.

“Dr. Andrews informed the team today that his evaluation of Matthew’s injury (which occurred Nov. 7 against the New York Jets) is consistent with the evaluation and diagnosis of the Lions’ medical staff,” the team said in a statement. “Matthew will continue the rehabilitation process that he began last week under the supervision of the team’s medical staff.”

The Lions will roll with backup Shaun Hill this week against the Cowboys.  Meanwhile, the Cowboys hit the practice field this morning and the team has altered its schedule a bit, allowing the media to meet with new defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni after practice today and QB’s coach Wade Wilson tomorrow.   Garrett’s presser is at 1:30 pm today and we will have it right here on 105.3 the Fan.
