Third String But Playing on Special Teams

OT: Stafford plays for DET
Johnson plays as well
DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was in
the starting lineup Thursday against Green Bay, less than a week
after separating his non-throwing shoulder.
The rookie passer and receiver Calvin Johnson (knee) each missed
three days of practice after suffering injuries in Sunday's
dramatic win over Cleveland.
Lions linebacker Ernie Sims was out with a hamstring injury,
defensive end Dewayne White with a hurt toe and safety Ko Simpson
with a knee injury. All three are starters.
The Packers, who lost linebacker Aaron Kampman and cornerback Al
Harris to knee injuries last Sunday, started center Scott Wells,
who missed two practices with a sore knee.
