Matthew Stafford Continues Rehab, Will Meet Up With Teammates Later In Offseason

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has spent the offseason rehabbing his right shoulder after having surgery on it. The rehab seems to be going well, as indicated by Stafford's tweets about throwing this week. This is his latest one, posted on Friday:

Just got done runnin, lifting, and throwin at the new facility in athens. Wish we had it like this when I was here...less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®


Earlier in the week, Stafford was at Georgia's pro day and spoke with NFL.com's Steve Wyche about his recovery and his future plans for the offseason.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said Tuesday that he is recovering well from surgery on his throwing shoulder, and when he is healthy, he will get together with wide receiver Calvin Johnson and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, among others, for workouts.

Stafford said at University of Georgia pro day -- he attended the school before going No. 1 overall in the 2009 NFL Draft -- that he is rehabilitating in Birmingham, Ala., with therapists from Dr. James Andrews' office. Andrew performed the surgery on Stafford's right shoulder in January.

Working on timing is important for a quarterback and his receivers, so it's good that Stafford has plans to work on that later in the offseason with guys like Johnson and Pettigrew. Obviously the hope is that the lockout will be resolved by the time Stafford's shoulder is 100 percent healthy, but if not, these workouts organized by players could be important for preparing for the season (if there is one, that is).
