In another sign that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is healing nicely from shoulder surgery, Stafford said today that he’s throwing to two of his top receivers.
Per Tom Kowalski of MLive.com, Stafford wrote on Twitter that he was throwing with several receivers, including Calvin Johnson and second-round draft pick Titus Young. If things go right for Detroit (which, as recent history shows, is a big “if”) the Stafford-Johnson-Young trio is going to be the nucleus of the Lions’ passing game for years to come.
Stafford, who suffered a Grade 3 shoulder separation in Week 9 and had surgery in January, is expected to be healthy and ready to go when training camps open.
Which is just one more reason that Lions fans are hoping that training camps open on time.
