Schwartz worried about wins, not bye, for Lions

By LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Lions coach Jim Schwartz says he will not take an upcoming bye into consideration when deciding if quarterback Matthew Stafford and receiver Calvin Johnson will play at Green Bay.

Schwartz said Monday "we're trying to win" when asked if he might rest Stafford and Johnson against the Packers because Detroit is off the following week.

Stafford did not play in Sunday's loss against Pittsburgh after injuring his right knee the previous week.

Johnson started the game, but did not finish because he hurt his right knee. Schwartz says the injury is not significant.
