ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Lions quarterback Matt Stafford had a record-setting day in Sunday's 38-37 victory over the Cleveland Browns.
The Detroit rookie probably won't get a chance to repeat his accomplishments on Thanksgiving.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Monday that Stafford was “extremely sore” after sustaining a separated left shoulder on the next-to-last play of the game, and that he wouldn't play against Green Bay unless the pain subsides.
Stafford was injured while throwing a desperation pass into the end zone as time expired. The Browns were called for pass interference, and after a time-out, Stafford came back to throw a game-winning touchdown with no time on the clock.
Schwartz was also unsure about Calvin Johnson, who sustained a knee injury on the same play that saw Stafford injured.
