ALLEN PARK, Mich. - After Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford strained a muscle in his right leg against the Titans on Sunday, Stafford received an MRI exam.
Not surprisngly, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz didn't say much concerning his signal caller.
“I don’t have any comment on how anything went with him,” Schwartz said.
“He wasn’t able to finish the game; Shaun Hill came in and finished the game for us, and we’ll see how [Stafford] progresses through this week.”
Stafford, who appeared to walk okay in the locker room, declined any comment when asked how his leg is doing.
Schwartz said he wasn't worried yet about Stafford's availability. He said the injury report Friday would be the next time anything official would come of it.
The Lions quarterback said his leg bothered him throughout the practice week leading up to the game in Nashville. He also said Sunday it had hampered him throughout the game.
Stafford did not appear on last week's injury report.
