Lions QB Matthew Stafford Won't Need Surgery

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz wouldn't disclose the particulars of quarterback Matthew Stafford's latest right shoulder injury, but dismissed the thought that surgery would be required.

"We're not talking surgical options," Schwartz said on Monday according to Tom Kowalski of

Stafford missed five games after separating the shoulder in the 2010 season-opener, and the first overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft finished his rookie season on injured reserve with a shoulder separation, as well.

In 13 career games, all starts, Stafford has completed 54.5% of his 473 pass attempts for 2,802 yards, with 19 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. Stafford has a 91.3 passer rating in three games this season.

Veteran quarterback Shaun Hill is recovering from a broken left forearm, and could get the start next week against the Buffalo Bills.
