With Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford suffering an injury to his throwing shoulder in the regular-season opener, the early word filtering out of the Detroit organization is that the team believes Stafford will miss two-to-three weeks, at a minimum.
Depending on the results of the MRI, the team fears that Stafford will miss up to four-to-six weeks.
The Lions’ next six games includes games against the Eagles, Vikings, Packers, Rams, and Giants. Detroit’s bye comes in Week Seven.
UPDATE: A source close to Stafford describes the team’s concern as “all speculation at this point.” X-rays were not taken at the game because the Lions had no access to a machine at Soldier Field. X-rays and an MRI will be performed in the morning.
