Matthew Stafford Is Back In More Ways Than One

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford returned to practice on Wednesday and went through the session without limitation. It was his most extensive practice since suffering his right shoulder injury, which he admitted was an AC separation.

Although his presence at practice was a sign that Stafford is back as the Lions' starter, perhaps the best sign that he is truly back comes from wide receiver Mike Moore.

"He launched one just to let everybody know he’s still got it," receiver Mike Moore said. "I think he threw it probably like 70 yards in the air … and everybody was like, 'We know he’s back.'" 

Stafford didn't say if he's actually 100%, but he did say the number is up there and that he feels good. Now, we are still a week and some change away from the Lions' next game, but based on practice this week and what Stafford has had to say, I think it's pretty obvious he will be ready to go. A lot could obviously happen, but it seems like Stafford is back to normal health-wise.
