Schwartz says Stafford is day to day with knee
Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz began his weekly news conference Monday saying he’s even less happy with his team’s 48-24 loss to the Chicago Bears yesterday than he was 24 hours ago. Schwartz is no doubt also less than thrilled his starting quarterback left that game with a knee injury.
Schwartz offered a brief update on the status of injured QB Matthew Stafford, who sources have told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is believed to possibly have a dislocated right kneecap. Schwartz refused to say the kneecap was dislocated, but said he considers Stafford “day to day” and he would know more on Wednesday. At this point, Schwartz isn’t ruling Stafford out yet for this week.
Schwartz indicated Stafford underwent testing already Monday, and his availability depends on how the injury responds. He declined to rule that if Stafford didn’t meet practice standards during the week he wouldn’t be allowed to play.
“Every situation is a little bit different. Every position is different,” Schwartz said. “I wouldn’t want to put that set of rules out there for him.”
