Wednesday Notes: Drew Stanton to Start on Sunday

  • Based on who took the first-team reps in practice today, it looks like Drew Stanton finally is going to get his shot at being the starting quarterback.  Matthew Stafford will be out for the third week in a row, and it appears the coaching staff has finally realized that playing Daunte Culpepper is just pointless, especially based on what happened on Sunday.

    UPDATE: Stanton has now been named the starter for Sunday.
  • The Lions added Terrance Taylor, who was released to make room for Dan Gronkowski, back to their practice squad today.  A spot opened up because Dan Gerberry was signed to the 53-man roster after Melvin Fowler was waived.  
  • While Don Muhlbach practiced today, Phillip Buchanon, Larry Foote, and Vinny Ciurciu did not.
  • Schwartz benched Gosder Cherilus on Sunday and said that "he's still a work in progress [with technique]."
  • Jason Hanson thinks he is struggling so much because he is over-kicking the ball on some field goal attempts.
  • Louis Delmas is a candidate for Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week.  You can vote for him over at
  • Grady Jackson's brother was sentenced to 20-50 years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder.
