Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Matthew Stafford will start for the Detroit Lions and Calvin Johnson will play. This is a shock. More soon.
MLive.com is reporting:
Detroit Lions fans have one more thing to be thankful for during this Thanksgiving holiday: Matthew Stafford will play today.
Though nothing official has been announced, a source close to the team revealed that the rookie quarterback will be under center when the Lions take the field against the Green Bay Packers today.
Stafford, who hurt his left (non-throwing) shoulder while engineering the last-second game-winning drive against Cleveland last Sunday, was listed as doubtful.
