  • Jim Schwartz has announced that Drew Stanton will start on Sunday for the Lions. This will be Stanton's second career start. His first came in a 20-6 loss to the 49ers in the second-to-last game of the 2009 season. Stanton completed 11 of 21 passes for 130 yards and threw three interceptions. Earlier this year against the Giants, he completed 19 of 34 passes for 222 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also lost one fumble, just like in his first start.
  • Apparently Schwartz said that the offense won't change with Stanton at the helm. All I can say is I'll believe it when I see it.
  • As Tom Kowalski pointed out on Twitter last night, Stanton will be going up against Rod Marinelli and Mike Martz on Sunday. Talk about extra motivation to play well.
  • Dave Birkett reports that the Lions aren't planning on signing any new quarterbacks and don't plan on putting Matthew Stafford or Shaun Hill on injured reserve in the immediate future.
  • Former Vikings wide receiver Troy Williamson worked out for the Lions on Monday, but like the situation with the QBs who got a tryout, it doesn't appear a signing is imminent.
  • Jahvid Best and Gosder Cherilus practiced today after sitting out Tuesday's session.
  • DeAndre Levy was reportedly the one who started the shoving match during the second half of last week's Patriots game.
