Matthew Stafford To Do Light Throwing This Week?

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has been rehabbing his right shoulder again after suffering an injury against the Jets. He visited Dr. James Andrews and was told surgery wasn't needed, which is why the Lions didn't place him on injured reserve and end his season.

During a radio interview on Monday, Stafford provided an update on his rehab, saying that it's possible he could start doing light throwing this week.

In his regular weekly radio appearance on the Mitch Albom Show on WJR-760 in Metro Detroit, Stafford was asked if he was able to increase his workload in his rehabilitation exercises.

"I can do a lot of stuff," Stafford said. "I might try to do a little bit of light throwing this week and see how it goes."

According to Dave Birkett, if Stafford does throw this week it will put him on the same timetable as his first injury this season. If that is the case, then a potential return would be slotted for the Dolphins game on Dec. 26, seven weeks after Stafford was hurt against the Jets.
