Drew Stanton played through a separated shoulder

You might have noticed that after Lions QB Drew Stanton’s shoulder got crushed as he tried to make a throw in the second quarter of Sunday’s game vs. the Buccaneers, TV cameras spotted team trainers attending to Stanton on the bench.

In fact, Stanton left the sideline early to get a jump on halftime, and reports were that the injured Shaun Hill was warming up in case Stanton couldn’t play.

But then Stanton returned to the game and helped lead Detroit to its first road win in three years, and perhaps, you forgot about Stanton’s first-half ailments.

Chances are it didn’t slip Stanton’s mind, because, according to the Detroit News, Stanton suffered a Grade 3 separation of his non-throwing shoulder.

The fact Stanton played through the pain – and played well enough to throw for a career-high 252 yards – is actually pretty damn impressive.

"Drew showed a lot of toughness out there," coach Jim Schwartz told reporters today. "He suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter and finished the game with it, played the best game that I've seen him play."

Schwartz didn’t rule out Stanton for next Sunday. Last season, Matthew Stafford suffered the same injury and played in a game four days later. Most likely, it’ll be a gametime decision, and Schwartz will have to choose between Stanton and Hill, who’s still battling a finger injury.

There’s a chance Stafford also could play, but that doesn’t seem quite as likely.

"We'll keep an open mind on all three guys and by the end of the week we'll have a pretty good plan to go forward," Schwartz said. "Drew definitely played well but we have a lot of other considerations."
