Could Matthew Stafford Only Be Out 1-2 Weeks? - [Full Article]

On a Detroit radio show (WDFN-1130 AM) this morning, Dr. Stan Sczecienski of Garden City Hospital said there might be evidence that QB Matthew Stafford's injury could sideline him for just a week or two.

Sczecienski, who does not treat Stafford, said two pieces of information lead him to believe the injury might be a shoulder contusion instead of a separation. One, replays show that Stafford got hit on the side of his shoulder and, two, Stafford himself said there was no injury to the labrum (Sczecienski said injury to the labrum is normally an indication of a separation).

Stafford is expected to visit noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews this week for a second opinion.
