Four quarterbacks stayed on the roster, but the Lions could make a move before the first regular season game next Sunday (against the Saints in New Orleans). Kevin O'connell, who was recently acquired on waivers, remains on the roster (while Brooks Bollinger was released).
Drew Stanton isn't expected to be sidelined long as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery, but the Lions might elect to place him on the injured reserve list anyway. By doing so, the Lions could have both Stanton and O'Connell battling for the No. 2 quarterback position next season (Daunte Culpepper is on a one-year contract and isn't expected to return).
