Lions HC Jim Caldwell told reporters on Monday that QB Matthew Stafford‘s injured throwing hand is “just sore” but he’s “not certain” how this will affect him throwing the ball this week.
“We’ll just kind of see how that goes to be honest with you,” Caldwell said, via the Detroit Free Press. “Obviously, any time that you’re dealing with a throwing hand it’s not going to be easy. We’ll see how it heals.”

Redskins S DeAngelo Hall admitted he played terribly and he deserved to be benched a few weeks ago.
“I played terribly,” Hall said, via John Keim of ESPN. “When Manusky came to me and said we’re going to go with Ev, I said ‘not a problem.’ Would I have liked to go back out there and play and get some get-back, especially against a sorry-ass Giants team? Absolutely. But I understood the reason behind it. You take your lumps as a man. You get beat, you get beat.”
Hall did, however, say that “absolutely” loves playing football, even though he ability where it once was.
“Do I still love to play? Absolutely,” Hall said. “Am I not as good as I think I am? Yeah, probably so at this point. As a 14-year vet, you kind of feel you don’t need training camp. But I needed it because I hadn’t played in so long. I needed to get my legs back. I needed to get a feel. I needed to see things. So I feel behind the eight ball and would love to see how my body responds to actually being able to train with the mindset of coming into a camp healthy and playing.”
Hall admitted that there are other career paths he could pursue after the season such as coaching, broadcasting or a front office role.
“There are a couple different routes, but I’m excited to see what happens,” Hall said. “When you graduate you’re like, ‘Man I’m excited to see what happens next.’ That’s the excitement I have right now. I’m excited to see what happens next. Am I gonna coach? Am I gonna do this? Am I gonna do that? Am I gonna keep playing? I’m just pumped up man. Yeah it stings [to sit] but when you watch a guy come up and kind of coach him up and feel that connection to him it doesn’t sting as bad because I know that guy put the work in and he deserves the opportunity.“
