Matthew Stafford: ‘I’m doing everything I can to be back as soon as possible’

On Monday, Stafford joined The Mitch Albom Show on WJR 760-AM and he spoke about how his doctors have not given him a timeline that is set in stone as to when he will be able to return to the field.

From Detroit Free Press:

“There’s nothing firm, set anywhere,” Stafford said on The Mitch Albom Show on WJR 760-AM. “I think for me it’s a fluid situation and just something I’m monitoring and trying to make sure that when I’m back out there I’m ready to go and obviously, l’m doing, like I said earlier, everything I possibly can to get out there as fast as I can.”

When asked if missing six weeks was an accurate report, Stafford did not confirm nor deny it.

“I haven’t talked to anybody about any of that stuff, so I’m not really sure to be honest with you where they’re getting that information,” he said. “It’s collaborative effort between myself, Coach and the doctors just to figure out when is appropriate and when is the best time for me to get back out there. But rest assured I’m doing everything I can to be back as soon as possible. And nothing’s worse for me than standing on the sideline, not being able to impact the game, so I’m doing everything I can to get back.”

Nation, if you were the Lions, would you bring Stafford back this season or just let him rest until next season.
