Stanton starts at QB for Lions
Lions quarterback Drew Stanton is making his third straight
start in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Stanton helped the Lions to a 7-3 win over Green Bay last week
and got the call against the Bucs over Shaun Hill. Hill was limited
in practice during the week because of a finger injury.
Injured starter Matthew Stafford, as well as third quarterback
Zac Robinson, running back Aaron Brown, linebackers Vinny Ciurciu
and Landon Johnson, tackle Tony Ugoh, guard Donald Thomas and
defensive end Willie Young were inactive for Detroit.
Tampa Bay’s inactives included safety Larry Asante, cornerback
D.J. Johnson, fullback Erik Lorig, guard Brandon Carter, tackle
Will Barker, defensive end George Johnson, receiver Dezmon Briscoe
and third quarterback Rudy Carpenter.
