Even though the Detroit Lions list rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford as day-to-day because of his knee injury, you get the feeling the team will be cautious about his long-term welfare and sit him for a couple of weeks. Stafford's right kneecap popped out of the socket Sunday in a loss to the Chicago Bears. When he was in high school, he suffered a similar injury horsing around with friends. The injury is not believed to be serious, but there is no reason to risk further injury. With a bye week coming in two weeks, it might be safer for the Lions to use Daunte Culpepper and then bring Stafford back after the bye week.
Look for the Lions to rest Stafford
