Interesting News About Matthew Stafford's Injured Shoulder

Matthew Stafford visited Dr. James Andrews down in Alabama today. What the results are of that visit are unknown right now, but in the meantime ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported a few interesting things in an article written on Sunday about Stafford's shoulder:

  • According to Mortensen, Stafford first hurt his right shoulder against the Jets near the beginning of the second quarter. He went down while trying to avoid a sack and grabbed his shoulder, appearing to be in some pain. Later in the quarter he apparently winced after throwing a pass, indicating something was wrong. He gutted things out and stayed in the game until a harmless-looking play knocked him out of action. I guess the fact that he got hurt earlier in the game explains why such a soft landing ended up doing so much harm in the fourth quarter.
  • Mortensen also reports that Dr. James Andrews doesn't think Stafford's injury is as bad as what Sam Bradford went through at Oklahoma last year. This was based only on the preliminary MRI, but that is an encouraging sign.
  • The final thing to take away from Mortensen's article is that he said it would be a surprise to see Stafford play again this season. Nothing has been decided one way or another, and Stafford's visit to Alabama was to get a clearer picture of the recovery process, but Mortensen doesn't think Stafford will play again this season.
