In a mailbag article hosted by ESPN's Adam Schefter, he explained that Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was dealing with a hip injury and not a hamstring injury as was originally reported. He went on to say, "I would be surprised if he practiced Wednesday or Thursday, but ultimately, when the game rolls around, he's a tough guy to count out." Stafford has played with minor injuries in the past so for him to sit Week 4 out, as Schefter says, "that tells you how bad the injury is." Source: FFToolbox.com

Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz isn't saying much about quarterback Matthew Stafford's injured right leg.
Stafford left late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 44-41 overtime loss at Tennessee with a strained muscle, and although Shaun Hill played well in a relief role, the last thing the Lions want is a return to the days when their franchise quarterback wasn't...

The Detroit Lions lost starting QB Matthew Stafford to injury Sunday, but they are trying to keep his status hush-hush for this week’s game against the Vikings.
After suffering both an injury to star quarterback Matthew Stafford and a loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, it’s fair to say that the Detroit Lions have been left reeling.
Sitting at 1-2, the Lions have to be concerned with the plethora of missed opportunities in their first three games.

Every year a team goes from in the playoffs to winning 5 games or fewer. The Lions, one of my preseason overrated teams, are a finalist for that spot, but I have them finishing a little bit better than that. However, their defense is atrocious just like last year and Matt Stafford, even if he doesn’t get hurt again, is not going to throw for 5000...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Its not going to happen in Detroit because Matthew Stafford is clearly established as the face of the franchise.
But Shaun Hill is good enough to get a quarterback controversy started in other places.
When you see him do things like he did Sunday, leading the Lions to two touchdowns in the final 18 seconds to force overtime, it makes you wonder why Hill isnt...

Schefter also said that word is that Aaron Hernandez is healing quicker than expected.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey has been released from the hospital and is recovering from a concussion and neck injury. He’s expected to fully recover.
